Metaphor: ReFantazio

Metaphor: ReFantazio Live Stream Set to Showcase Never Before Seen Gameplay on April 22

While Persona 3 Reload might be in our rearview mirror, Metaphor: ReFantazio – another big Atlus-developed JRPG in the style of the latest Persona games is coming later this year, and the company has announced that it’s hosting an Atlus Exclusive Showcase livestream for Metaphor: ReFantazio on April 22nd.

Fans anticipating the game can expect the presentation to be around 30 minutes long and will feature new never-before-seen gameplay hosted by the game director, Katsura Hashino. The April 22nd showcase will be streamed on Atlus’ YouTube channel and Steam at 3 p.m. PT/ 6 p.m. ET, featuring English subtitles and dubbed audio.

Metaphor: ReFantazio is in development by Studio Zero, one of Atlus’ newest internal developers that spun off from Persona developer P-Studio following the Japanese launch of Persona 5 to create an original IP known as Project Re Fantasy at the time.

The project name would later be officially revealed as Metaphor: ReFantazio, which was first announced at the latest Xbox Games Showcase in June. While the upcoming 2024 title will be the developer’s first original title, Studio Zero’s first project was an enhanced release, Catherine: Full Body, released in 2019.

Metaphor: ReFantazio is set to launch on PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S later this fall.
