Scarlet Nexus lies far into the future, where drones swarm en masse in the sky and high technology is commonplace anyway. With the help of technology, a special psionic hormone is found in the human brain that gives some people superpowers. Mankind is just entering a new era with brain-enhancing technology when an unfortunate turnaround takes place: hundreds of mutants named Others, craving the human brain, are starting to rain from space.

As we have already said in connection with previous first feelings, a defense force called the Other Suppression Force is being set up against Others mutants to defend the Earth against aliens descending from the sky. OSF troops recruit warriors whose supernatural abilities are particularly well-suited to the fight against Others.

The player gets to decide right at the beginning of the Scarlet Nexus whether he wants to jump into the boots of Yuito Sumerag or Kasane Randall. Sumeragi is an energetic newcomer from a respected political family, while Randall is a mystical scout who hides his background. Both characters join the OSF forces to fight the Others. The choice of character affects the story of the game, so the most avid fans should try both options.

The others against the game’s heroes and OSF are nicely original creatures. The game includes, for example, bouquets with flower bouquets and flying light bulbs. At times, an object resembling a witched cow may be confronted, while on the other hand, a creep carrying a machine gun drips from the sky again. Attacks by opponents are also perky different, and different approaches must be used against different opponents.

Scarlet Nexus is basically a fast-paced action game where others are given a ride. The aim is to form various combos of attacks and at the same time dodge enemy counterattacks. In practice, it is a piece of work in which the psychokinetic forces of the characters are harnessed to use, for example, blades floating in the air. In addition, the player can throw cars, trash cans and other debris found on the streets of the city, among other things, into the neck of Others.

The struggle felt good even at first glance. The good news is that the quality of the fight even improves as the story progresses as more special abilities become available. With the Scarlet Nexus campaign, a player-led group joins more fighters whose special abilities can be utilized for a variety of combos. Different characters are developed in a role-playing way with the help of talent trees.

The action itself is so addictive that it manages to support a somewhat mediocre story and dialogue. While Others are interesting creatures, the characters or the conversations between them do not reach the same level. For the most part, the story is similar to a B-level anime chunk, which doesn’t actually irritate, but also doesn’t garner praise.

Also, in the tight tube of the Scarlet Nexus, the Game World advancing from battle and Checkpoint to another could have offered more. More space could have been left for the adventure and more could be taken away from the brainpunk-themed world in the form of details. Towards the end, the Game World, and with it the struggle, begins to repeat itself a little too much, but not fortunately indestructively badly.

Technically, the Scarlet Nexus works well, and there were no problems encountered during the walkthrough. Playing with a mouse and keyboard is possible, but using a game controller still seemed like a more natural option.

Overall, the Scarlet Nexus, developed by Bandai Namco, is one of the best surprises of the summer. Whatever you think of the anime theme, at least you shouldn’t be too scared, as the driving force behind Scarlet Nexus is its sleek struggle with a variety of brain punk abilities.


“Offering a great fight, the Scarlet Nexus is one of the happiest gaming surprises of the summer.”
