The game takes place in a far distant future where a psionic hormone found in the brain has granted folks extra-sensory powers ushering in a new era for humans.

Unfortunately, mutants known as Others, with a “thirst for human brains” have appeared, and they are resistant to “conventional attack methods.”

To combat the threat, the Other Suppression Force was formed and its members use their newfound extra-sensory abilities to fight the Others.

Scarlet Nexus is a sci-fi action RPG from Bandai Namco Studios, and development is being led by former members of the team that brought you Tales of Vesperia.

The game is coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, and Steam for PC.
