Bandai Namco Studios has announced that Scarlet Nexus will release on June 25th. Developed by the minds behind Tales of Vesperia, namely Kenji Anabuki and Keita Iizuka, the of the Tales of Vesperia team, the action RPG takes place in the future where the psionics of the OSF battle mutants called the Others. New screenshots have also been revealed on the PlayStation Blog, showcasing the protagonists and some other cast members.
Though Scarlet Nexus features hack and slash combat, players can also utilize Psychokinesis as either Yuito or Kasane.

SAS Plug-Ins can improve stats and abilities for different party members while also upgrading one’s own abilities.
Of course, there are also a variety of different cosmetics for customizing the OSF’s looks. Check out some of them in the screens below. Scarlet Nexus is currently available to pre-order with bonuses including the Special Battle Attire Set which provides the “Face Vision: Seal”, “Dream Catcher” and “Shoulder Baki (11)” attachments.
