Bandai Namco has finally announced the release date for their upcoming JRPG Scarlet Nexus. It is slated to release for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC on 25 June 2021. The release date was revealed in a new Scarlet Nexus Kasane Story Trailer.
Featuring a dual story, begin your adventure with either Yuito Sumeragi, an energetic recruit from a prestigious political family or Kasane Randall, the mysterious scout whose power and skill has gained great notoriety among the OSF. As their different experiences interweave with each other, it is only then that you will reveal the full story and unlock all the mysteries of a Brain Punk future caught between technology and psychic abilities in Scarlet Nexus.
Bandai Namco also revealed that a Scarlet Nexus anime is in the works from Sunrise (the same studio behind Gundam and Code Geass), which is slated to premiere sometime in summer 2021. The synopsis for the anime reads:
Link your minds, unlock the future.
In 2020 of the solar calendar, grotesque organisms called Others have begun eating people. To take down this new enemy, the Other Suppression Force is formed. Saved by this elite team as a child, psychokinetic Yuito enlists, bravely withstanding the training. On the other hand, prodigy Kasane was scouted for her abilities. But Kasane’s dreams tell her strange things, dragging the two into an unavoidable fate.
