Metaphor: ReFantazio - Launch Date Announced, Physical Pre-orders Start, First Hands-on Revealed, New Trailer and More

Earlier today, ATLUS hosted a special developer livestream regarding their upcoming full-scale fantasy RPG Metaphor: ReFantazio. Studio Zero Director Katsura Hashino (Persona 3, 4 and 5, Shin Megami Tensei III - Nocturne) introduced the first hands-on gameplay the public has seen with a 30-minute livestream. During the stream, Hashino-san explored various segments of the game, treated viewers to an abundance of brand-new details and exciting teases, and discussed his development vision and creative inspirations.

One of the major reveals from the stream is the game’s launch date: October 11, 2024.

Hashino-san’s narrated journey brought viewers to a selection of the game’s many locales, from grand cities to underground waterways, as well the deepest dive yet into the game’s systems and characters. Key to traversing Metaphor: ReFantazio’s vast world is the Gauntlet Runner, a vehicle that doubles as the player’s home base and HQ.

A new trailer, “The King’s Trial,” highlighting the game story and stakes is viewable here:

In case you missed it, the full livestream VOD (dubbed and subbed in English) is available to watch here. New assets can be found here.
