What Is Metaphor: ReFantazio?

Metaphor: ReFantazio is a third-person fantasy role-playing game. The game takes place in the world of Euchronia. As the king has just been assassinated, a new royal head must rise. However, something known as the Royal Magic is invoked, and with that, a tournament takes place, with the throne being the prize.

The protagonist journeys across the land searching for a way to break the curse placed upon the once-thought-dead prince. During the adventure, players will also enlist in the tournament to figure out how to save the royal line. Along the way, they will meet various characters who are helping to right wrongs in a world going awry.
