After yesterday's showcase at Inside Xbox, Bandai Namco have now revealed additional details about their upcoming action RPG game Scarlet Nexus. The game is set to launch on PS4, PS5, Xbox One X, Xbox Series X and PC.

Scarlet Nexus is a brand new RPG franchise from Bandai Namco Studios and former members of Tales Of series team. The game will be launching on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam.

Players will take on the role of Yuito Sumeragi, who is armed with talent in psycho-kinesis, explore the futuristic city named New Himunka throughout their playthrough. Here are the first details about the game's setting and story.

"In the far distant future, a psionic hormone was discovered in the human brain, granting people extra-sensory powers and changed the world as we knew it. As humanity entered this new era, deranged mutants known as Others began to descend from the sky with a hunger for human brains. Impervious to conventional weapons, those with acute extra-sensory abilities, known as psychics, were our only chance to fight the onslaught from above and preserve humanity. Since then, psychics have been scouted for their talents and recruited to the Other Suppression Force, humanity’s last line of defence."
