Essentially, Scarlet Nexus' story happens through the eyes of two central protagonists - Kasane and Yuito. Kasane is a young, intelligent girl scouted by the OSF for her natural talent.

Scarlet Nexus Length

This brings us to how long Scarlet Nexus will take you to beat. Generally, a playthrough of the game should take you around 20 hours doing a moderate amount of grinding and side content, this could go up to the 30-hour mark for a completionist.

This being said, you will want to play through this game twice with each main character if you want to see everything the game has to offer.

The different characters aren't just reskins, they each have their own unique arc and relationships that are worth exploring to fully tie together the entire story. Not only this but it gives extra insight into all the other companions that can join you in combat. Doing both will likely take around the 50-hour mark.
