A new RPG franchise created by former members of the “Tales of…” series, Bandai Namco announced that Scarlet Nexus will be released for the Xbox Series X.
Set in the distant future, a psionic hormone has been discovered in the human brain that grants people ESP, changing the very fabric of the world. However, deranged mutants known as Others have begun their descent, feverishly hungry for human brains. Those with acute extra-sensory abilities, which are known as psychics, are the only chance to fight the onslaught from above and preserve humanity. Built up of psychics, the Other Suppression Force is humanity’s last line of defense.
