Written by on | OpenCritic

We now know when to expect Scarlet Nexus to drop. 

A new trailer was released for Scarlet Nexus, giving us a look at the game's second protagonist, Kasane Randall. The trailer also reveals when the game will be released: June 25th. The trailer also revealed that there will be an anime based off of the game coming later this year. The anime will be produced by Sunrise Inc, and will be available too stream through Funimation. 

"Link you minds, unlock the future," the game's official description reads (via IGN). "In 2020 of the solar calendar, grotesque organisms called Others have begun eating people. To take down this new enemy, the Other Suppression Force is formed. Saved by this elite team as a child, psychokinetic Yuito enlists, bravely withstanding the training. On the other hand, prodigy Kasane was scouted for her abilities. But Kasane's dreams tell her strange things, dragging the two into an unavoidable fate."  

It was also announced what the pre-order bonuses for Scarlet Nexus will be. Those who pre-order the game through Bandai Namco themselves will receive a limited-edition Steelbook case. Those who pre-order the Standard Edition of Scarlet Nexus will receive an exclusive costume set for Yuito and Kasane, Baki attachments, and other cosmetics. There will also be a Digital Deluxe Edition of the game, which will cost $79.99. This version of the game includes all of the extras found in the Standard Edition, but also comes with a costume set for the game's characters, another cosmeitc, and SAS Plug-Ins to use in-game. It will also come with digital copies of the game's artbook and soundtrack. 

Scarlet Nexus will be released for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S this June. The game will support Smart Delivery, meaning players who buy the game for the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One will be able to upgrade to the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X/S should they pick up the new consoles.
