ATLUS has announced Metaphor: ReFantazio, the new title from the Katsura Hashino-led Studio Zero previously known as PROJECT Re FANTASY, for Xbox Series and PC (Microsoft Store). It will launch in 2024.
It should be noted that ATLUS has a history of announcing its games exclusively for Xbox and PC via Microsoft Store, before announcing them for other platforms later. Last year’s announcements of Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 5 Royal were exclusive to Xbox Series, Xbox One, and PC via Microsoft Store for 48 hours before they were confirmed for other platforms. (Update 06/15/23: ATLUS has officially announced that Metaphor: ReFantazio will also be available for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam.)
Here is an overview of the game, via ATLUS:
Write your destiny and rise above fear as you step into a fantasy world unlike anything you’ve seen before. Fraught with unsettling mystery, the kingdom stands on a precipice. Now, you must embark on a journey, overcoming obstacles and forging bonds with friends.
From the creative minds of the Persona series—Metaphor: ReFantazio marks ATLUS’ first ever, full-scale fantasy RPG, brought to you by director Katsura Hashino, character designer Shigenori Soejima, and composer Shoji Meguro. Metaphor: Refantazio is developed by Studio Zero.
