Defend New Himuka in Scarlet Nexus with Sizzling SteelSeries Gear

Take on Scarlet Nexus's sprawling anime RPG story with the hottest SteelSeries gear you can buy.

Scarlet Nexus is an action RPG from Bandai Namco, and also one of the most exciting releases this summer. You take control of Yuito Sumeragi or Kasane Randall, both members of the Other Suppression Force (OSF). Their job? Keeping the city of New Himuka safe from a collective of weird creatures known as Others.

You'll need to use their psycho powers, melee weapons like swords, and additional intriguing abilities to move through the game's skill tree and train them up to make sure the Others have absolutely no chance of succeeding.

Scarlet Nexus is going to be a challenging affair, but if you're geared up with the best equipment from SteelSeries, you won't have any issues coming out on top. Here are our top picks for the best peripherals you'll need to tackle Scarlet Nexus.

Stratus Duo

With Scarlet Nexus launching on Steam, you'll want the perfect controller to tackle anything the game will throw at you. The Stratus Duo is capable of playing 5000+ controller-enabled Steam games, and don't need any special software to get going, either. You can pair and play with the controller on Windows without any lengthy setup. Plus, the controller's lithium-ion battery lets you get your game on for over 20 hours, as it charges while you play, too. With durable magnetic sensors and clickable analog joysticks, you can use the Stratus Duo for button-mashing your way through any lengthy enemy encounter that you'd like, making it perfect for Scarlet Nexus.

Arctis Prime

A look at the Arctis Prime headset for PC users.

If you're going to delve into the world of Scarlet Nexus, you're going to want a reliable headset to make sure you can hear the dialogue (it's a rousing story), your protagonist's lines, and the enemies you'll encounter. Nothing beats being able to take on an enemy because you predicted they'd be coming from a specific direction. The Arctis Prime is the perfect PC headset to enhance the game in every way. It features high fidelity audio drivers with the same hardware and tuning from our Arctis Pro, and it's also extremely durable. It features noise isolating, leather-like ear cushions as well as a frame crafted from aluminum alloy and steel. Plus, if you want to chat with friends on Discord while you play, you can use the Discord-certified ClearCast microphone.

If you're not one to play with a controller, you might want to give Scarlet Nexus a try with a keyboard. Our Apex 7 TKL keyboard with red switches is exactly what you need. It's compact, attractive, and best of all, quiet. So no matter how much you need to mash the keys to pull off attacks, you don't have to worry about making a racket. Plus, you can set up the keyboard's OLED Smart Display to show you information and notifications straight from things like Discord, Tidal, and other games. It's also going to get you through Scarlet Nexus and tons of other titles, thanks to its durable Series 5000 Aircraft grade aluminum frame and durable mechanical switches.
