Metaphor: ReFantazio Atlus 35th Anniversary Edition Preorders Discounted For PC

Metaphor: ReFantazio arrives on October 11, and three different editions of Atlus' new RPG are up for grabs.


Atlus showed off an exciting new trailer for Metaphor: ReFantazio during Summer Game Fest. If you haven't preordered your copy of the upcoming RPG, you can get bonuses or even a collector's edition (while supplies last). If you're a longtime Atlus fan, the physical collector's edition or digital anniversary edition will likely appeal to you, as it celebrates 35 years of Atlus history.

The studio has been on fire lately with its Persona games and various other entries in the JRPG genre, and its next title, Metaphor: ReFantazio, has an official release date of October 11 locked in. With development being led by several Persona veterans--including director Katsura Hashino, who has led the Persona franchise through its most successful era so far--this could be the start of a major new franchise for Atlus and its publisher, Sega. Metaphor: ReFantazio preorders are live now at major retailers. If you're interested in picking up the collector's edition, you'll want to act fast. Though the PS5 version is currently sold out at all retailers, you can preorder the Xbox Series X edition at Best Buy, Walmart, or GameStop.

Though initially believed to only be available for PS5 and Xbox Series X, the collector's edition is now available to preorder for PC at Amazon. It will probably sell out quickly, so order it while you can (June 11). Meanwhile, PC players who aren't interested in the collector's edition can preorder a standard edition Steam key for $60.89 at GameSpot sister site Fanatical. Alternatively, you can preorder the PC version of the Atlus 35th Digital Anniversary Edition for $87 (was $100). It comes with a bunch of the same content as the collector's edition, just in digital format instead.

Metaphor: ReFantazio preorder bonuses

Metaphor: Refantazio preorders come with multiple pieces of in-game content: the Archetype EXP Chest Set and the Adventurer's Journey Pack.

In case you missed the trailers, Metaphor: ReFantazio is a fantasy game in which you attempt to seize the throne after the kingdom's previous ruler is assassinated. In this land, anyone of any social class can become the next king so long as they get the people's support. Players will be able to master Archetypes, powerful abilities that transform characters into one of several classes with unique skills to use in battle, and the game uses a mix of real-time action and turn-based combat.

Similar to Persona's Social Link system, ReFantazio uses the Follower system to forge bonds with the people you meet on your journey and unlock new Archetypes to experiment with. Metaphor: ReFantazio will launch for PC, PS5, PS4, and Xbox Series X|S on October 11.
