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.
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.
