Counting down to the release of Scarlet Nexus

Scarlet Nexus is the next big Action RPG to come from Bandai Namco. After working on things like the Tales of series and Code Vein, it was time to go somewhere totally new

Jump To

Self-described as "brain punk", Scarlet Nexus boldly displays an original story and characterisation good enough to have an Atlus fan dreaming about it. Here's everything we know about it coming up to its release.

Latest - The Reviews Are In

Reviews dropped a few days before the official launch and they are coming in strong. You can read our own review right here.


Make sure to have a look around before purchasing to double-check it's the kind of game for you.

Scarlet Nexus Announcement

Scarlet Nexus was announced over a year ago on May 7th and sees main characters Yuito Sumeragi and Kasane Rendall takedown Others, a terrifying new creature.


This being said, everything is still left a little vague as the world is slowly developed and the game's striking style comes to the forefront. You will have to play it for yourself to really unravel what it has to show.

Scarlet Nexus Release Date

The game arrives in just a few days on June 25th. You can preorder it now to get it on release.



Although the very first trailer only mentions Xbox, it has been confirmed to arrive on Xbox, PC and PlayStation on day one.

The next-gen version comes to Series X and PS5 day one too, a great bonus to those lucky enough to snag the latest consoles


Preload Info & Scarlet Nexus Release Times

You can preload the game right now on your platform of choice. This can be done by going into the game tabs and clicking to download.

This should unlock on midnight on the release date. This means midnight on June 25th, you should be able to boot up the game for yourself. This might change a little over time so we will update here as we know

Download Size

Though this will change from platform to platform, the copy I have on on PlayStation 5 comes in at 15.39GB.

It is currently being reported at around 14.2GB elsewhere but this size could go up somewhat around release as more updates come in.

Pre-Order Bonuses

If you pre-order the standard edition of the game, you get three new attachments - "Face Vision Seal", "Shoulder Baki(11)" and "Dream Catcher" - on release. You can access these from the in-game shop for free. It also comes with the "Special Battle Attire Set -Audio-"


The deluxe edition of the game comes with all of the above plus the "Brain Punk bundle", "SAS Plug-in Variations(3)" and "The Other" attachment. Most of these will make sense of themselves as you boot up the game.
