It's been over a year since we first saw Scarlet Nexus get its official unveiling at an Inside Xbox event in 2020, but now, it's finally available on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - complete with Smart Delivery.
The anime RPG has you taking control of one of two characters, each with their own separate campaign. You'll battle through exhilarating combat, complete with stunning anime visuals. It's not all explosive set pieces, as you'll also spend some downtime in the hub world, meet up with your companions, and form special bonds between your party.
Featuring a dual story, begin your adventure with either Yuito Sumeragi, an energetic recruit from a prestigious political family or Kasane Randall, the mysterious scout whose power and skill has gained great notoriety among the OSF. As their different experiences interweave with each other, it is only then that you will reveal the full story and unlock all the mysteries of a Brain Punk future caught between technology and psychic abilities in SCARLET NEXUS.
Reviews for the game have been fairly positive, with many critics praising its combat in particular. The narrative seems to be a bit hit-and-miss, and depends on your love for the anime genre. But if you're looking for something fast-paced, over-the-top, and just a little bit different, Scarlet Nexus could be a great way to spend the weekend.
