Description

Unleash the Power of the Mind

Take on the role of Yuito Sumeragi, a new recruit to the OSF aiming to become an elite psionic like the one who saved him as a child. Armed with a talent in psycho-kinesis, explore the futuristic city of New Himuka and uncover the mysteries of a Brain Punk future caught between technology and psychic abilities in SCARLET NEXUS.

In a far distant future, a psionic hormone was discovered in the human brain, granting people extra-sensory powers and changing the world as we know it. Just as humanity was entering this new era, deranged mutants known as Others began to descend from the sky with a thirst for human brains. Highly resistant to conventional attack methods, extreme measures needed to be taken to battle the overwhelming threat and preserve humanity. Those with acute extra-sensory abilities, known as psionics, were our chance to fight the onslaught from above. To this day, psionics have been scouted for their talents and recruited to the Other Suppression Force (OSF), humanity’s last line of defence.

Scarlet Nexus

Reviewed by on

(PSN Purchase) This is an incredibly well made JRPG from Bandai Namco that combines anime elements (and a parallel released tv show) with traditional RPG gaming. The character development is excellent even if the characters fit the archetypes that we are used to seeing in RPGs. The synth tracks are great. There’s a sort of comic sketch to the cityscapes that looks really beautiful to the eye.

After playing for several hours the fighting stands out, which is important since this can be a +40 hour game from what I’ve read. The main characters use telekinesis to slam objects into enemies. Once I got the hang of it with the various combos it was a blast. Even if the enemies aren’t that diverse I’m still enjoying grinding when the story pauses. The levels are fairly linear but there are break points where the game opens up and you can choose to explore previous areas or keep moving the plot along.

I recently discovered that there are crossovers from the game to the tv show that they added into the game. I really like this because watching the first two episodes that were released of the show has reinforced the character development and story versus just playing the game.

Overall this is one to check out if you are into these sort of games.
