Details on Archetypes was previously released:

What is an “Archetype”?

The protagonist faces their own fears, and by building a relationship of trust forming bonds with their supportive followers, characters awaken the power of heroic images, called Archetypes.​

By awakening to Archetypes, the protagonists can transform into them during turn-based battles if they have them equipped.​

​Archetypes are diverse, each with different abilities and personalities. There are a variety of archetypes, from the basic Seeker, who is an all-rounder in battle, the Mage, who strikes weaknesses with offensive magic, to the Thief, who can plunder resources. Players will have to decide which Archetypes to awaken and how to configure their members to create a stronger party.​

Metaphor: ReFantazio will be released worldwide on October 11, 2024 for the Xbox Series X|S, Windows PC, PS4, PS5, and Steam.
