Directed by Kenji Anabuki and Keita Iizuka of the Tales of Vesperia team, Scarlet Nexus is an intense, story-driven action RPG from Bandai Namco Studios released on June 25. Set in the distant future, the world has entered a dangerous new era where deranged mutants called the Others terrorize and hunt humans.
To protect people in this perilous world, the Other Force of Suppression (OSF) recruits psionics – special humans with acute extra-sensory talents – and uses their unique psychic powers to exterminate Others.
The Scarlet Nexus battle system gives you the ability to fully utilize your party’s psionic powers in a number of ways. The game’s two main playable characters, Yuito and Kasane, both use psychokinesis.
Psychokinesis users can move objects with the power of their minds, so that many elements in your immediate surroundings can be harnessed in combat as a weapon.
Scarlet Nexus integrates even more psionic possibilities with the Struggle Arms (SAS) system. With SAS, Yuito and Kasane can team up with a party member to take advantage of their psychic ability and combine it with theirs.
SAS can be activated to increase your party’s combat potential – for example, harnessing Hanabi Ichijo’s pyrokinesis can enhance both psychokinesis and melee attacks with his pyrokinetic flames. Gemma Garrison’s Sclerokinesis can be used to provide short-term immunity to damage for a temporary defensive advantage.
By using SAS strategically, you can connect with party members with different psychic abilities to gain the upper hand in battle.
Scarlet Nexus’ combat system also allows a wide range of options to match different playstyles. Equipping various SAS plugins to party members can help boost stats, improve physical attacks, boost abilities psychic or even upgrade your psychic powers for an even more powerful attack combo in combat.
OSF members are not only equipped with special psychic powers and weapons to be ready for battle – they can also customize cosmetic options to fight others in style.
With hundreds of options for new OSF cadets, Yuito, Kasane and your team members can mix and match with different outfits and cosmetic items for a unique look.
