Players will be able to check out the gameplay for each character, with Yuito specializing in close combat, while Kasane opts for more ranged fighting.

Scarlet Nexus takes place in a futuristic country called New Himuka, where technology and psychic abilities are a part of humanity. There are a variety of psychic abilities available, such as controlling fire through pyrokinesis and controlling electricity through electrokinesis, as well as seeing hidden objects with clairvoyance, or using duplication to create copies of objects to throw around.

There are creatures called “Others” that have fallen from the sky and are looking to snack on people’s brains. The Other Suppression Force, or OSF, was created to combat this threat. The members of OSF are equipped with their own weaponry and psychic abilities in order to take down these enemies.
