We’ve spent some time exploring Bandai Namco’s latest brainpunk game and are now ready to explain the reasons why those who love Japanese fantasy should look at not only this project, but the anime version with the same title.
- Producer: Bandai Namco Studios
- Publisher: Bandai Namco Entertainment
- Date of release: June 25, 2021
The summer is upon us and Bandai Namco, the leading supplier of anime-based games, is looking to splash out on a brand new game. Then, almost immediately following the game’s animated version will hit the screens. It will have the same name and, more likely, with the similar storyline. Sunrise (Code Geass ), Gintama, Cowboy Bebop) is responsible for the adaptation.
It is the Scarlet Nexus action game is managed by director of the project Kenji Anabuki as well as the producer Keita Iizuka. The one is the director and one is the creator. Both have been involved in games in the Tales game series that are the part of Bandai Namco. In addition, the new installment of the series, Tales of Arise, will be available this season, in the fall, on September 10.
Two main characters are featured of Scarlet Nexus, Yuito Sumeragi and Kasane Randall. Yuito is a kind and brave young man being a member of an aristocratic family, but not showing his status. When Yuito was just a kid his OSF (Other Suppression Force) agent, which could be defined to “Otherworldly Suppression Force”, helped save his life. The moment that changed Yuito’s life forever defined his career path.
The only time, near Naomi’s blue-eyed adoptive sister Kasane’s gaze softens some and warmth begin to appear within her vocals. Yuito has a soulmate. Nagi Karman’s best friend with whom she have graduated from OSF Academy together. Nagi is trustworthy and kind and has a passion for hot women.
However, back to the present. The game’s creators weren’t lying when they positioned Scarlet Nexus as a “distant distant future” timeline. The game’s world is located on the lines between cyberpunk as well as post-apocalyptic. The first is in areas of high-security, populated by OSF and military, with a well-developed infrastructure and the dominant position of augmented reality technology. and the second in deserted areas that are frequently attacked by the Other.
What happens in Scarlet Nexus take place during Kasane and Yuito’s graduation where the system is introduced to participants to some quite amazing combat techniques. As you might have seen in the trailers the female character relies upon flying butterflies during battle, while the other uses the blade of his family and both are equipped with psychokinesis (the ability of thinking to alter objects).
Anything goes: steel beams and scaffolding, fences, automobiles, hydrants. You could even throw an entire train at your opponent If you’re in the mood. Certain items are employed in every fight, and certain items aren’t so popular, but are able to deal massive destruction, or can are essential in an epic boss battle.
The opposition also has strengths and weaknesses, which is why you should make sure you pick your team with care. Certain teams have strengths and weaknesses also, and you’ll need to select your squad carefully. Certain players are able to vanish or move so swiftly that they are unable to hit with your sword. To take on these enemies, you’ll need knights that increase reflexes, or let the undetectable.
There’s no way to influence the plot. Namco did not even give the appearance of choice, which means that all the dialogs in the game are played without your input. This can be uncomfortable, despite the fact that the plot in Scarlet Nexus is pretty good.
The third problem is that Namco did not give you the appearance of the options available.
The other complaint is, as usual, regarding the camera. It’s among the major issues not just with Bandai Namco’s work however, but also of Japanese ARPGs all over the world. The problem is especially prevalent in narrow corridors and alleyways, which are where you’ll find regular clashes between monsters.
I’m not sure the Scarlet Nexus is full of new ideas. It’s actually fairly familiar, but there’s some elements that feel like it’s been done better than normal. To me, there’s been a big gap between anime-style and anime games but Scarlet Nexus has thoroughly wiped this line. That’s the reason.
There’s still plenty to explore, as the plot’s main twist was not revealed in the first place, and it’s difficult to judge the content that is Scarlet Nexus. The game isn’t available for the option of localization to Russian however it was stated in the announcement and the speed of optimization it isn’t clear.
One thing is certain – the film is interesting and captivating and fans of sci-fi anime will definitely enjoy it.
In addition it’s coming soon that you’ll have the chance to explore the Bandai Namco’s game by yourself. On May 21, you will be able to test this Scarlet Nexus demo on Xbox Series X/S as well as Xbox One, and on May 28, PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 gamers will have the chance to play the demo for free.
