Scarlet Nexus, an anime-themed action RPG is slashing its way onto the scene this June.
Scarlet Nexus, which may or may not include a betrayal you can see a mile away, casts you as one of two protagonists who use their psychic and technological abilities to kick anime bottom across several levels. The pair are “Yuito Sumeragi, an energetic recruit from a prestigious political family” and “Kasane Randall, the mysterious scout whose power and skill has gained great notoriety among the OSF”.
There’s no word on how the dual protagonist system will work, whether it’s just a case of picking one character and playing through or whether both characters are experiencing Scarlet Nexus at the same time. We hope it’s the latter; we loved having two interlocking stories in Resident Evil 2 and we were disappointed that the remake didn’t really follow suit.
You watch the game’s trailer above for a taste of the monster-murdering, cel-shaded anime slashing that Scarlet Nexus is set to offer. There’s also an actual animation series in the works, though we don’t yet know if it’ll complement or re-tell the game.
Scarlet Nexus will arrive on the PC, Xbox One, Xbox X/S (via Smart Delivery), PS4 and PS5 this June 25th.
