Scarlet Nexus gets top-tier difficulty option and new photo mode

scarlet nexus photo mode update

Make beautiful memories of hideous atrocities

Scarlet Nexus is a great game, and was low-key one of the most entertaining and stylish titles of 2021. For anybody out there still drowning in its dazzling-but-grotesque futurpocalypse, you’re in luck, as Bandai Namco has just dropped a brand new update on all platforms, adding a couple of fine features.

First and foremost, version 1.07 — now available to download on PlayStation, PC, and Xbox — adds a brand new difficulty option. The unsurprisingly titled “Very Hard” mode will test even the finest soldiers of The Other Suppression Force as they do battle with the brain-eating monstrosities currently munching their ways through the domes of civilization. It will take all of the firepower and psychic capacity of your favorite alien-mashers to battle through this hardcore setting, tuned for veteran players.

On the lighter side, a brand new Photo Mode has been added, which will allow you to take super-cute selfies of your favorite Scarlet Nexus stars. Create wonderful memories and candid comedic moments as life as we know it melts away into absolute nothingness, (kinda like the real world, I suppose). The photo mode will feature a selection of filters, poses, facial expressions, and other fun features so you can capture yourself, your pals, and that massive bag of tentacles and goo just right. Smash that Like button!

Scarlet Nexus is available now on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. Away from the digital world, you can check out its Sunrise-produced anime adaptation right now on the Funimation streaming service.
