A new Scarlet Nexus trailer showcases playable characters and their psionic abilities

In Scarlet Nexus, you'll be a psionic fighter pitted against the Others, monstrous creatures which thirst for human brains, in a "brain-punk future." The game's latest trailer shows off the Others Suppression Force (OSF) team members and the playable characters.


The OSF is made up of psionic warriors with extra-sensory abilities. The trailer shows off two playable characters, Kasane, an orphan whose parents were killed by the Others, and Yuito Sumeragi. Bandai Namco says Kasane was scouted by the OSF when she was a child, and that her abilities include psychokinesis and a skill with throwing knives. Yuito Sumeragi joined the OSF after being saved from the Others by an OSF member, and is also gifted with psychokinesis.

Their party is made up of Gemma Garrison, Luka Travers and, Tsugumi Nazar, with other characters including those gifted with cryokinesis, pyrokinesis, aerokinesis and more. You'll be fighting to become an elite in the OSF, and to defend the city of New Himuka from the Others.

Scarlet Nexus will launch for Xbox Series X and Xbox One, but there's no release date yet.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
