Scarlet Nexus 2 would be more mature

Scarlet Nexus game director Kenji Anabuki and producer Keita Iizuka have said that while Bandai Namco Entertainment hasn’t announced plans for a sequel, they’re eager to work on it. Speaking to Inverse, the duo said they were pleased with the game’s review and fan response, and would like to make a sequel with a more mature tone.

Scarlet Nexus 2 would further explore superpowers

“If there’s a sequel, I’d personally like to use the ‘superpower’ theme in areas other than combat,” Anabuki said. “The world and setting of the story could potentially be created for an even more mature audience; by exploring themes such as the dangers of having or using superpowers.”

However, Anabuki has not given much thought to the direction he would take when it comes to the story of the sequel. “Maybe it’s further from the original Scarlet Nexus story or based on the game’s worlds and features,” he added. “At this point I couldn’t say.”

Scarlet Nexus 2 would support both console generations

Scarlet Nexus developers want to support both current generation and last generation platforms. It is clear from their interview with Inverse that both Anabuki and Iizuka value the game’s community and the support they have shown. “I hope to continue hearing from all of you in the future,” Anabuki added. “Your voices build the future for the Scarlet Nexus I P.”

Scarlet Nexus has a Metacritic score of 80/100 on the PlayStation 5. According to Bandai Namco, the game’s availability on Xbox Game Pass has increased its visibility and publicity, and the developers seem very grateful that the publisher has struck a deal with Microsoft.
