Now Playing: 11 Minutes of Scarlet Nexus Preview Gameplay

We've reached out to Bandai Namco for clarification and will update this post if we hear back.

Scarlet Nexus is a third-person action game in the same vein other Bandai Namco action-RPGs like Code Vein. In a preview after playing about three hours (through the Parsec streaming platform), GameSpot editor Michael Higham walked away impressed but looking for more before being convinced of the game's potential.

'When reflecting on my short time with Scarlet Nexus, I see potential for a high-quality action game with slick anime-stylings, even if I feel like I've seen something like this before,' Higham said. 'However, it's the smaller gripes that accumulate and leave me reluctant to wholly embrace the game right now.'

Scarlet Nexus launches on June 25 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. Check out our Scarlet Nexus preorder guide to learn about the available bonuses. Elsewhere, Funimation is developing a spin-off anime series that debuts on June 25 as well.
