Scarlet Nexus celebrates today’s launch with London graffiti mural

Jim Vision creates ‘brainpunk’ inspired artwork

A fantastic and electrifying graffiti mural has appeared on the streets of East London, inspired by and marking the release of Bandai Namco’s brand new sci-fi adventure Scarlet Nexus, which launched today on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC platforms.

The huge, eye-catching piece was designed and painted by UK artist Jim Vision of art collective End of the Line, (who were also responsible for the incredible Metal Gear Rising murals back in 2013). Armed with 50 cans of spray paint and a palette of 37 colors, Vision completed the extraordinary work in just two days. The Scarlet Nexus graffiti mural embodies the trademark “Brainpunk” style of the colorful, futuristic universe.

You can check out Vision’s process in this neat time-lapse video.

“This part of East London felt like a fitting place to produce this piece of art,” said Jim of the mural. “You look down one road and you see the quiet residential streets that were once the stomping ground of legendary London gangsters, The Krays, then you turn the corner, and you are surrounded by a huge city landscape of high-rise futuristic buildings, very similar to Scarlet Nexus.”

The artwork, which will remain installed for one month, can be found at 68 Hanbury Street, London, E1 5JL, opposite Second Home Spitalfields. So if you’re in the area, be sure to take some time out to soak in its neon brilliance. Additionally, today will also see a selection of Scarlet Nexus-themed events at clothing store Cyberdog, located in Camden Market.

Scarlet Nexus launches today on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC. You can check out Eric Van Allen’s positive words on the kinetic adventure right here.
