Scarlet Nexus celebrates two million sales and Game Pass downloads

Xbox Game Pass boosts Brainpunk actioner

Bandai Namco’s hi-tech action-adventure Scarlet Nexus has shifted an impressive one million copies since its summer 2021 release on PC and consoles. In addition, the publisher announced that over two million players have battled it out within the anime-infused “Brainpunk” universe.

The huge disparity between player count and sales is a result of Scarlet Nexus being made available on the Xbox Game Pass service, downloads of which do not, obviously, count as literal sales. The addition of Scarlet Nexus to the subscription service did result in a 100% player increase, which still bodes well for Bandai Namco’s future plans for the franchise, which has already received an anime adaptation.

If you’re still curious to check out Scarlet Nexus‘ wild world of psychic teens, brain-eating aliens, and powerful mech technology, then now is as good a time as any, as Bandai Namco has dropped a new “Story Demo” which, as the name denotes, offering the curious a bite-sized chunk of the story campaign. Any progress made in the demo will be carried over to the main game, should you decide to pull the trigger on a full purchase. Need further convincing?

Scarlet Nexus is available now on PlayStation, PC, and Xbox platforms.
