On the heels of the reveal during the Xbox Games Showcase last month, Atlus has announced on a special celebration livestream in Japan that Metaphor: ReFantazio will be launching on PlayStation 4 and 5 and PC via Steam alongside Xbox Series X|S! As if there was any doubt! (Though I guess they didn’t announce a Switch port…) Headed by Katsura Hashino with music by Shoji Meguro and art by Shigenori Soejima, all of whom are known for the modern Persona games (not 1 and 2), this game is sure to excite many fans that have been playing their games since the PS2 days!

With this announcement, Atlus has also released a multiplatform trailer! (It’s actually the same as the announcement trailer with the end card changed to include all the platforms just announced.)

Atlus has also released a creator interview that answers a few questions about the game.

For additional information on the game please check out our previous coverage! There’s also an official site, but it’s just a splash page for now.

I’m personally cautiously optimistic about Metaphor: ReFantazio for reasons, but we all know that, at least style and gameplay-wise, this team of developers doesn’t miss! In fact, the proof is all there considering the newest ports of Persona 3, Persona 4, and Persona 5 all reviewed extremely well with our all-star staff! Turns out even the decade-old games still hold up! Heck, Persona 5 games by themselves apparently now make up half of overall series sales! Here’s hoping Atlus finally gives some love to 1 and 2 eventually too…

Please stay tuned for RPGFan for continued coverage of Katsura Hashino games and Atlus RPGs!
