We got our first look at upcoming RPG Scarlet Nexus earlier today as part of Inside Xbox, with the game revealed to be coming to both Xbox Series X and Xbox One. It will also support Smart Delivery, allowing you to buy one version of the title and play it on either console.
Interestingly, the game (which is being developed by Bandai Namco) is being lead by former members of the team behind the 'Tales Of' series, including 2008 Xbox 360 hit Tales of Vesperia. Scarlet Nexus takes place in the far distant future, and is said to feature a "deep story driven experience" and "kinetic psychic combat."
"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."

This is an RPG?!
Looked like a Platinum Games-esque action title to me.
I'm very interested, yes. I love Vesperia so this, being made by some of the same people behind it, sounds promising. It's starting to feel like primetime for Xbox, isn't it? 😎
It does look reminiscent of Astral Chain, I'll give you that.
@gingataisen I was fully expecting to see a Legion make an appearance...
Disappointed. Calling members of the same development team who worked on a vastly different project a "close connection" to that project is more than a little misleading. It's like saying Destiny is closely connected to Halo because it's (originally) by Bungie, and you could apply the same thing to any development team's body of work.
Very looking forward to this. It looks like a mix of God Eater/Astral Chain with some Shin Megami thrown in.
This will probably be a day one for me. More JRPG! That's my motto!
Scarlet Nexus looked pretty good to me. It may not be exclusive, but I feel compelled to play it on Series X.
I’m really excites about this game but I want to know more about it.
Very cool. Nice to see this type of game coming to Xbox consoles. It won’t make me buy the system, but if I pick up the series x, I’d get this for it also.
Absolutely loving the look of this. Tales RPG mixed with Platinum action in an anime style? What's not to love?!
Looking good. Definitely the best of the game shown yesterday. I found the official website but it doesn’t really add anything. https://en.bandainamcoent.eu/scarlet-nexus/scarlet-nexus
