Bandai Namco also discusses the story’s “dual protagonist” structure.
Elden Ring wasn’t present at Tokyo Game Show 2020 Online but Bandai Namco did offer new details on Scarlet Nexus. It released a new story trailer about Yuito Sumeragi and unveiled the second protagonist – Kasane Randall, a new recruit who also uses psychokinesis. Though she’s more aloof and rational than Yuito, Kasane has also been seeing the “red strings dream.”
Scarlet Nexus has a “dual protagonist” story divided into separate volumes. Presumably, experiencing both volumes will provide the complete plot though more details are still to be revealed. Bandai Namco also revealed some new gameplay with Yuito and two squadmates as they battle the Others – check it out below from 1:20:00 onwards.
Scarlet Nexus is coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5 and PC. It takes place in a “Brain Punk” future where mutants called the Others have arrived to eat people’s brains (no, really). Only the OSF, which possesses psychic powers, can defeat them. A release is still to be announced.
