The long-awaited futuristic action RPG Scarlet Nexus will be available to buy from 25 June 2021 on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One with a pre-order bonus items and a 2 months free subscription to Funimation available now from participating retailers.
Scarlet Nexus has electric futuristic ‘Blade Runner’ style backdrops and bizarre spine-chilling hybrid beasts which have inspired a very fitting launch for this game – by bringing some of these fascinating elements to life in London over the next couple of weeks.
Taking inspiration from the game and the original game artwork, mural artist Jim Vision from EndoftheLine will be producing an epic graffiti mural that will be unveiled in East London just ahead of launch. On display for one month, fans of the game will be able to see the immense piece of artwork in person.
Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe have also partnered with London’s iconic futuristic fashion brand Cyberdog in Camden Market to host a range of in-store activities on the day of release (25 June 2021). Customers will be able to head down to the store during opening hours (11am – 8pm) and experience further Jim Vision / EndoftheLine Scarlet Nexus murals as they are created LIVE along with having the chance to have a go with the artists on the fantastic digital graffiti board that will be available on the day. There will also be lots of prizes on offer at the Cyberdog HQ, including signed prints from top games influencer Arekkz Games and artist Jim Vision / EndoftheLine.
Scarlet Nexus is set in a far distant future, where a psionic hormone was discovered in the human brain, granting people extra-sensory powers and changing the world as we know it. Just as humanity was entering this new era, deranged mutants known as Others began to descend from the sky with a thirst for human brains. Highly resistant to conventional attack methods, extreme measures needed to be taken to battle the overwhelming threat and preserve humanity. Those with acute extra-sensory abilities, known as psionics, were our chance to fight the onslaught from above. To this day, psionics have been scouted for their talents and recruited to the Other Suppression Force (OSF), humanity’s last line of defence.
