“Scarlet Nexus,” Bandai Namco’s new IP, earned relatively positive reviews from critics for its two intertwined tales and combat system. Players pick between Yuito and Kasane, two cadets graduating into the elite force called the OSF (Other Suppression Force). They meet new teammates and senior officers in the fight against alien creatures known as Others. However, they soon learn that there’s more to the reality behind their monster-ridden world and the powers they hold.
Benji Sales, an independent games industry analyst, reported that the game debuted fifth in the overall best-selling games of the month chart and placed as the sixth best-selling game for both Xbox and PlayStation. Bandai Namco also created “Scarlet Nexus” with an accompanying anime in mind, which tells the same story through animation rather than gameplay.
If you happen to finish both Yuito and Kasane’s routes and explore every side quest the game has to offer, it might be time to move on to something new. Here are a few games you should play if you liked “Scarlet Nexus.”
