We’re quite excited for Bandai Namco’s upcoming new IP Scarlet Nexus, and a new trailer hasn’t dampened our enthusiasm.

The action RPG looks fabulous, and has a cool sci-fi premise involving a protagonist – Yuito Sumeragi – who is tasked with “uncovering the mysteries of a Brain Punk future caught between technology and psychic abilities”.

We still don’t have anything resembling a release date beyond “summer 2021”, which will mean winter here in Australia.

Scarlet Nexus will be available for the PS5, Xbox Series X|S/One and PS4.
