Scarlet Nexus demo released
Xbox players can try the demo now, PlayStation next week
Bandai Namco has announced that the Scarlet Nexus demo is out now for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, and will be released for PS4 and PS5 next week.
Scarlet Nexus takes place in a country known as New Himuka, set in a distant future where technology and psychic abilities have evolved in tandem with humanity. People exhibit abilities that are obvious, like pyrokinesis where you control fire, as well as more complex abilities, like clairvoyance: the precognitive ability to see what is hidden before you.
In the game, you can take on the role of either Yuito Sumeragi, the young, enthusiastic recruit from a prestigious family or Kasane Randall, the stoic psionic who graduated top of her class. Each story playthrough takes place during the same point in time, though experienced through the eyes of separate heroes. Additionally, both Yuito and Kasane exhibit different gameplay, where Yuito’s attacks and skill tree focuses on close combat and recovery, whereas Kasane is a mid-range attacker with early skill unlocks focusing on dexterity and agility. In the demo, both Yuito and Kasane’s initial gameplay can be experienced.
Scarlet Nexus will be released on June 25, 2021 for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, and PS5.
