Another part of Bandai Namco’s Scarlet Nexus developer diary series is here. This next segment again stars Producer Keita Iizuka, Director Kenji Anabuki, and Art Director Kouta Ochiai. This time, the goal is to explain more about the Scarlet Nexus New Himuka country, its major locations, and how everyone’s brain power helps with technological advances.
The video begins with Ochiai talking about New Himuka itself to set the stage. He described it as a massive country with 1990s design influences and pointed to Seiran, Suoh, and Togetsu as its major locations. Those are the three spots people will visit as they play.
Anabuki then went on to talk about how influential humanity’s brain power was on New Himuka’s development. He pointed out how everyone is connected and compared the power to electricity. Specifically, he mentioned how Psynet replaces things like, say social media or the internet, with people able to connect with their brains.
Here’s the full Scarlet Nexus developer diary talking about the in-game city.
