The Scarlet Nexus trailer also previewed some additional content coming to the game in the form of DLC pack 1. The pack teased new bonding episodes for the characters, as well as a new combat action, “Crush Vision.” New costumes and weapons designed by No More Heroes series character designer Yusuke Kozaki are also in the pack. The game’s free 1.04 update will add new content and a challenge mode. Neither the update nor DLC have a release date.

Scarlet Nexus and AI: The Somnium Files are available on Xbox One, PS4, and PC, with Scarlet Nexus having PS5 and Xbox Series X editions as well.
