Action RPG Scarlet Nexus’ third additional paid DLC pack, Brain Eater Pack, has been released today. The pack features two all-character sets of newly designed costumes and story episodes surrounding Karen Travers, as well as new missions, challenges, and rewards.
Additionally, a free update, Ver.1.07, is also now available. In this update, new features have been implemented based on customer feedback – including the addition of a ‘Photo Mode’, which allows players to freely take pictures of the world, a whole new ‘Very Hard’ difficulty level, support plug-ins, new challenges, and rewards.
Episode Karen: Unknown History
In the Brain Eater Pack, you will be able to learn about the mysterious past of Karen Travers with the whole new “Episode Karen: Unknown History”.
This is a four-episode story series that is released in stages under certain conditions. Starting from 1996 in the solar calendar year in the world of SCARLET NEXUS, you can enjoy story episodes that recall a lost history that no one but Karen himself knows, from his own perspective.
The episodes will be released when certain conditions are met, such as by purchasing the third DLC, clearing the game in either Yuito’s or Kasane’s story, and defeating a very powerful enemy in the newly added mission.
Shadow of the Recording
The incredibly powerful enemy known as the Shadow of the Recording appears in a new mission in the Battle Simulator! You’ll have to make a stand against him as he sicks an onslaught of unfair attacks on you that you’ve never seen before.
New challenges and rewards have also been added. You might get rare attachments when you score an S rank in the new mission in the Battle Simulator.
Two Sets of New All-Character Set Costumes
You’ll be getting two new sets of all character costumes in this pack.
The first is the Guardian Attire. This set includes costumes based on the original Karen Travers outfit. Enjoy the majestic and dignified piano-black-themed costumes, designed for the best psionics out there.
The second is the Heir Attire, designed by Mr. Masakazu Yamashiro. This set of costumes has been incorporated with motifs of ancient ethnic costumes in the world of Scarlet Nexus. Enjoy both Mr. Yamashiro’s take on the world and the foreign elements that have been incorporated as distinctive features of his work.
Update Ver. 1.07
The Free update Ver. 1.07 has also been released, bringing a string of new modes to Scarlet Nexus.
In response to fan requests, there will be a new Photo Mode to allow users to take photos freely. Multiple options are made available, allowing you to take your favorite photos at the click of a button press at any time when exploring the world of Scarlet Nexus.
You can capture and save photos not only during gameplay but also at your favorite moments during cutscenes. A wide range of setting options are also available, including changing character expressions and camera controls. Capture the best moments and share with your friends what you love about Scarlet Nexus.
This includes the addition of a “Very Hard” difficulty mode, a new challenge for those who thought the game was too easy and want a more challenging gameplay experience. Players can now face off against enemies with even more powerful attacks.
New support plug-ins have also been included in this free update, for players who feel like the game is still too hard to even in the “Easy” difficulty mode, and those who would like to experience the story without all the effort needed to defeat strong enemies. Players would just have to update their game and retrieve the plug-ins in Shop for free!
Scarlet Nexus and the Brain Eater pack are available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
