With the release of update 1.04, Scarlet Nexus players can now access a more in-game content.

Jason gushed over the anime action RPG when it launched back in June. Here’s what he said in our Scarlet Nexus review:

From its compelling story, to its wild enemy designs and combat, I’m kind of in awe of Scarlet Nexus. Where Bandai Namco games often have a niche appeal, I’ve got no reservations about recommending Scarlet Nexus. I’d definitely suggest skipping a lot of the side stories, but everything else here is the kind of anime-infused greatness that will appeal to nearly everyone.
