Summer Game Fest 2024 Preview: Persona-Inspired JRPG, Retro Indie Compilation, and Exciting Title Reveals

The Steam platform has unveiled a list of 25 titles set to be showcased at the upcoming Summer Game Fest, featuring an intriguing Persona-inspired JRPG alongside a much-anticipated retro indie compilation that has been seven years in the making.

For those eagerly awaiting the lineup of Summer Game Fest 2024, the event's Steam platform page now displays a minimum of 25 titles scheduled to appear. While the page doesn't spoil any major unrevealed surprises, it does highlight several exciting entries that will grace the event curated by Geoff Keighley. Among these are the eagerly anticipated JRPG Metaphor: ReFantazio, spearheaded by a seasoned Persona developer, the eagerly awaited Dragon Ball: Sparking Zero, and the sequel to Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine.

Moreover, Capcom has continued to thrill fans with additional Monster Hunter Wilds revelations, announcing the inclusion of multiple weapon slots for the first time. Other notable games mentioned include updates on Palworld, Party Animals, and The Finals, all linked to the event in some way, though further specifics about these updates have yet to be disclosed.

Each year, The Day of the Dev's showcase stands out as a personal highlight during the Summer Game Fest, known for its creatively diverse lineup. This year promises no less, with standout entries such as Zoochosis, a nocturnal zoo horror adventure, Arranger, a narrative-driven puzzle RPG, and Screenbound, a unique puzzle-platformer that employs a nostalgic handheld gaming device to alter reality.

Among the most anticipated revelations is UFO 50, a project by Derek 'Mossmouth' Yu announced back in 2017, featuring a collection of NES-inspired games ranging from classic 8-bit JRPGs to inventive golf-pinball hybrids, crafted by a diverse group of indie creators. Having followed the project's journey from its inception, the anticipation for its detailed showcase is immense.

This revelation includes at least one of the 15 titles highly anticipated by enthusiasts for this year's Summer Game Fest.
