Scarlet Nexus launches today and that means we have a launch trailer! Normally launch trailers give you some kind of explanation about what is going on, some dramatic music and shots of the action with some early game cliffhanger.
Instead, Scarlet Nexus leans hard on its anime roots, and its launch trailer is more like the opening sequence of an anime series. I’m sure that if I play the game everything will make sense, but watching this on its own has done absolutely nothing to illuminate what the hell is going on.
There is a lot of RED, you know scarlet stuff, and a whole bunch of flashy attacks. There is probably some big character drama being symbolised but I have no idea. I do like the song though.
All I know is that we need to use psionics to defend ourselves against aliens that want to eat our brains… who are only interested in us at all because the human race starting developing extra-sensory perception.
Scarlet Nexus launches today on PlayStation, Xbox and PC.
