    During the weekend, ATLUS hosted a new livestream by Director Katsura Hashino, exploring the game’s rich systems with a focus on Archetypes – the special character powers that awaken in various ways, offering players many options for customizing their party.


    During the stream, Hashino-san explained how Archetypes branch and evolve throughout the player’s journey, describing the 14 basic Archetype lineages and when the variations of each Archetype are added up, there are more than 40 Archetypes available in total. 

    Hashino-san also offered insights on the team’s design goals and how they are reflected in the way Archetypes interact with the rest of the game. Metaphor: ReFantazio’s dungeons encourage players to think creatively and strategically about which Archetypes they use and how they use them. 

    The SteelBook® Edition is also available for pre-order. This bundle includes the base game, Steelbook®, Kingdom of Euchronia Parchment-style Paper Map and Pre-Order Bonus Voucher unlocking the Archetype EXP Chest Set and Adventurer’s Journey Pack.
