Now that the Scarlet Nexus game is close to releasing, more and more information is being revealed - including the fact that players will be able to form bonds with their companions. Aw, that's nice.
An action JRPG at heart about a group of force agents fight against the monstrous Others, that hasn't stopped Bandai Namco from making sure that protagonists Yuito Sumeragi and Kasane Randall are able to have some downtime to get to know their companions (thanks Siliconera!)
According to Siliconera's translation of the website 4Gamer, players will be able to deepen their bonds with various characters throughout the game by giving them gifts. What's more, the gifts you give characters will be seen later on, giving the player a chance to see what your companions have done with your gift in the first place.
After you deepen your bond with these characters, players will be able to take part in conversations that'll lead to 'character episodes'. In these episodes, players will find out more about their companions, their likes, dislikes, as well as their motives.
Scarlet Nexus will release on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC on June 25, 2021.
