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.
