Details via Bandai Namco Entertainment:

In the far distant future, a psionic hormone was discovered in the human brain, granting people extra-sensory powers and changed the world as we knew it. As humanity entered this new era, deranged mutants known as Others began to descend from the sky with a hunger for human brains. Highly resistant to conventional attack methods, extreme measures needed to be taken to battle the overwhelming threat and preserve humanity. Those with acute extra-sensory abilities, known as psionics, were our only chance to fight the onslaught from above. Since then, psionics have been scouted for their talents and recruited to the Other Suppression Force (OSF), humanity’s last line of defense.

Featuring a dual story, begin your adventure with either Yuito Sumeragi, an energetic recruit from a prestigious political family or Kasane Randall, the mysterious scout whose power and skill has gained great notoriety among the OSF. As their different experiences interweave with each other, it is only then that you will reveal the full story and unlock all the mysteries of a Brain Punk future caught between technology and psychic abilities in Scarlet Nexus.

Link your minds, unlock the future.

In 2020 of the solar calendar, 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 enlists, bravely withstanding the training. 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.

Characters

– Yuito Sumeragi (voiced by 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.

– Kasane Randall (voiced by 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.
