The host of tomorrow’s The Game Awards, Geoff Keighley, has announced that the new Atlus IP Metaphor: ReFantazio will be at the show. The extent hasn’t been elucidated, but we’ll keep you all updated.
Metaphor: ReFantazio was also known as Project Re Fantasy for several years. The game is being developed by the team behind Persona 3, Persona 4, and Persona 5. Further details were not provided, but we’ll be sure to keep you all updated on any significant news. This truly does look like a next-generation JRPG experience. It’s also taken notes from the Shin Megami Tensei series. The director is Katsura Hashino, and the composer is Shoji Meguro.
Director Katsura Hashino stated in a previous message that this game is a third pillar for Atlus. One key phrase for the game is “Facing your fear.” Character designer Shigenori Soejima said they wanted an androgynous and heroic protagonist.
Composer Shoji Meguro confirmed the game uses a score inspired by hymns and Buddhist prayers in its soundtrack.
