Are there any Scarlet Nexus romance options?

Are there any Scarlet Nexus romance options for any of the characters in the game? The game is seemingly built upon building good bonds with the other characters, so are there any romantic relationships in Scarlet Nexus? There are many teammates to talk to and improve the protagonist’s relationship with, whether that’s Yuito or Kasane, but can any characters be romanced in Scarlet Nexus? Let’s have a look.

Can you romance characters in Scarlet Nexus?

No, players can’t romance characters in Scarlet Nexus.

For a game with such a heavy focus on relationships, it’s surprising to note that there are no romance options in Scarlet Nexus. The game requires players to increase their relationship status with all their teammates to be more effective in battle, not to mention having access to additional and extremely useful powers or special moves.

To improve relationships with the characters, players have to talk to their teammates, buy them gifts, or take part in a short “bonding episode” cutscene which reveals more about the back-stories of each character. Unfortunately, none of these result in any sort of romantic relationship, despite a lot of hints to the contrary. None of the other characters get involved romantically, either. The best players can hope for is a strong friendship, although that may change when the Scarlet Nexus anime comes out next month.

Scarlet Nexus is out now on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, and PS5, although sadly there’s no news yet on a Switch port. While Microsoft currently has not announced any plans to bring it to Xbox Game Pass, it remains a distinct possibility for the future since the studio’s last game Code Vein went to Game Pass later. Finally, if the player is having trouble with a ‘failed to connect’ error while accessing the mission in Musubi’s, here’s what they need to do to fix it.
