About SCARLET NEXUS

About this game

Developed and published by Bandai Namco.

Scarlet Nexus is an action-RPG title set in a captivating future world where humans and technology harmoniously merge. Take control of Yuito Sumeragi and Kasane Randall as you'll take part in OSF (the Other Suppression Force) and fight back against the Others.

Enhanced by the Psionic Hormone

After a psionic hormone is discovered in the human brain, which grants people extra-sensory powers, the world as we knew it changed drastically, ascending humanity to new heights.

Fight Back the Others

After these new discoveries, deranged mutants known as the Others descended from the Extinction Belt with a hunger for human brains. These resistant creatures, which conventional attack methods couldn't bring down, needed to be taken down by something beyond humans. The psionics, those with the psionic hormone and extra-sensory powers, became humanity's last hope, and so the OSF — Others Suppression Force — was founded, scouted for these humans, and recruited them for their skills against the Others.

A Dual Story of Psionic Humans

Experience the story of two psionic humans; take control of either Yuito Sumeragi, the energetic new recruit coming from a prestigious family or Kasane Randall, a mysterious scout whose extraordinary power and skill have earned her great respect among the OSF. Explore the two narratives to understand the entire Scarlet Nexus' story and unlock all the mysteries!

Defend New Himuka

The OSF is New Himuka's last line of defence, and it'll be up to you to ensure that humanity doesn't fall to ruin. Use psycho-kinetic abilities to your advantage to defeat the Others, build up your your attack combos, and rain destruction on your foes!
