The demo for Bandai Namco’s upcoming hack and slash title Scarlet Nexus is now available on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S. It can be downloaded for free and allows for playing as Yuito or Kasane, each with their own unique stages and battles. Check out the release trailer to see them in action.
The demo also provides a tutorial to educate one about Psychokinesis, Rush Attacks and Struggle Arms System. Though both protagonists can toss items with Psychokinesis, Yuito is more of a close range fighter. As such, his teammates’ SAS abilities range from nullifying damage to teleporting through obstacles. Kasane, on the other hand, can fight from mid-range with her knives.
Her teammates’ abilities include duplicating items thrown by Psychokinesis, slowing down time and so on. Each of the featured bosses also showcases how you’ll use the environment to gain the upper hand (like dropping a water truck on the boss as Kasane and then imbuing attacks with Electricity). Scarlet Nexus is currently slated to release on June 25th for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5 and PC. The demo will go live on May 28th for PS4 and PS5.
