Scarlet Nexus' brain-powers are on full display in two new gameplay trailers


Brains over brawn.

Bandai Namco's action-RPG Scarlet Nexus is set for the summer, and today we got some new looks at what it will look like to smack enemies around with your brain powers while playing as its protagonists.

In the first cut, Yuito takes on a big enemy called the "Slippy Chinery" by using Pyrokinesis on it. Like I've always said, when in doubt, fire is probably the way forward.

And while Yuito can do plenty of rad-looking slams and mind attacks, fellow controllable character Kasane can also use telekinesis, taking out groups of monsters (called "Others") at a time.

Bandai Namco has been slowly trickling out more about Scarlet Nexus leading up to its June 25 launch date, including looks at some of its massive battles and the gameplay outside of those scraps too. It's got a fantastic look to it, and after the success of other stylized action games like Astral Chain, maybe this is a next-gen mind-masher to look out for.

Scarlet Nexus comes to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on June 25, 2021.
