Anime-Looking Action Game Scarlet Nexus Lands Anime

Anime-Looking Action Game Scarlet Nexus Gets Anime!Well, makes sense. Last year, we reported on the announcement of a game Scarlet Nexus. We were pretty pumped for the game due in part to its anime-looking graphics—and now it’s landed an anime adaptation. Funny how that works.

The anime will be produced by Sunrise, and debut this summer. It’ll be carried by Funimation in the States.

Meanwhile, the game is set to to hit Xbox, PlayStation, and PC on June 25.

Here’s how Funi describes the Scarlet Nexus show:

Solar calendar year 2020: 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 withstands the training to enlist. 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.

And here’s how the official website for the anime describes its two leads:

Voice: Junya Enoki

After the OSF saved Yuito as a child, he began to admire them, dreaming of joining their ranks.
For the next few years, he worked hard and eventually voluntarily enlisted, despite not being scouted. Yuito was born into an elite family with direct lineage to the founding father of New Himuka, Yakumo Sumeragi. He’s strong and kind and possesses psychokinesis or the ability to move objects with his mind.

Voice: Asami Seto

Adopted by the prestigious Randall family, Kasane was scouted and joined the Other Suppression Force Training School, graduating top of her class. Though they are not blood-related, she has a very strong love and sense of attachment for her older sister Naomi. Kasane is cool and rational, but sometimes misunderstands things. Her power is psychokinesis.
