Best action / adventure game in 2021

Honorable Mention: Scarlet Nexus

News Editor Giuseppe Nelva: When the Scarlet Nexus was announced back in 2020, it felt different than many other games from Japan. It was one of the first announced for the next (now current) generation of consoles, and it was to be released at the same time with an anime series by the prestigious Studio Sunrise. It incorporated Bandai Namco’s new IP policies, so I had high expectations for it.

I was not disappointed when I played the game. While the story is not exactly shocking to those accustomed to Japanese media (but it may shock others), it is told in a fresh and interesting way, and the gameplay is a lot of fun, leaving plenty of room for creativity. It’s definitely one of the best games coming out of Japan in 2021, and I would say that it’s generally quite underrated.

If you liked the Persona 5, it’s likely the Scarlet Nexus is straight to the right leg, and I’m not making the comparison easy. Of course, it does not play the same in many aspects, but it is based on a similar core that builds the game on the interaction between a group of friends. It’s basically a playable anime, and it’s great in my book.
