In the sample for the Metaphor: ReFantazio art book, we can see concept art of the protagonist, as well as art of the Humans. Humans are the monster-like creations that the main characters have to fight against in the story. From what we know about them, they only know to rampage around and cause destruction. The names for the Humans derive from the scientific name for the Homo genus. The artwork depicts Homo Avades, Homo Gorleo, and Homo Ptera.

Metaphor: ReFantazio is an upcoming game from Atlus and Studio Zero. The creative minds behind Persona 3 through 5 are the ones working on this game. Katsura Hashino is both the director and producer, Shigenori Soejima is the artist, and Shoji Meguro is the composer. It takes place in a medieval fantasy world who protects his kingdom with the help of his companions. While there will be some aspects of Persona in this work, such as in the calendar system and social simulation aspects, there won’t be anything like romance.

Metaphor: ReFantazio will come out on October 11, 2024 for the PS4, PS5, Windows PC, and Xbox Series X.
