The last few months have been a rollercoaster ride for the Xbox platform. Everything from the CMA blocking the Activision Blizzard deal, to some questioning Xbox leadership after the Redfall debacle, to the EU breathing life again into the ABK acquisition after approving it. Needless to say, if you’re an Xbox fan, recent times were turbulent to put it lightly. But now, we are in the midst of the much-beloved summer gaming convention season.
To say this year’s Xbox showcase is highly anticipated is an understatement. Fans are through the roof with hype and anticipation. This year’s Xbox Showcase promises to deliver to fans what they’ve been longing for, quality first-party games. Best of all, the Showcase is already confirmed that it will not feature any full CGI trailers. During the Xbox Showcase, fans got a glimpse of Metaphor: ReFantazio.
Metaphor: ReFantazio is a JRPG coming from the creators of the Persona series. It will release on consoles and PC in 2024. From watching the gameplay, it is clear that it takes heavily from the previous Persona games. The title will be published by Atlus but the development team is all new. For anyone looking for more info, Atlus will be hosting a live stream on June 20th at 9 AM ET.
