S.Quare Enix announced Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy during their live stream at E3 2021.
Stranger of Paradise: The Origin of Final Fantasy Revealed
Square Enix and Team Ninja have unveiled a trailer for the Final Fantasy spin-off title Stranger of Paradise. Rumors circulated on the internet this year that the collaboration with the Nioh developer was in the works on an action RPG, now it has finally been revealed. Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin appears on Playstation 5, Playstation 4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One and PC in 2022.
Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy follows a group of adventurers on a mission to kill the chaos. Jack tries together with his allies Ash and Jed to defeat the chaos in order to open the gates to the Chaos Shrine. It is not all smooth, however, as there is “doubt” as to whether these heroes are the Warriors of Light, which is apparently important to a prophecy.
From what is shown in the trailer, it appears to be action-packed, following previous rumors that it would focus on a more soul-like approach from Team Ninja’s previous titles like the Nioh franchise. Square announces that the title promises “intoxicating, action-packed battles” in a “world of dark fantasy”.
Creative producer Tetsuya Nomura assures fans, “Although it’s Final Fantasy, it feels different – but there’s no doubt that the blood of Final Fantasy runs through his veins.” He also shares that “We took on the challenge of finding that difficult middle ground for this mature and stylish title.”
Undoubtedly, the trailer looks different from the usual Final Fantasy games lately and looks more like hack and slash. Team Ninja and Square Enix have worked together on one title in the past, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT.
Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin also has a demo available for Playstation 5 that will be available until June 24th. However, the Stranger of Paradise official Twitter account has announced that there are currently issues with the study that they are trying to fix.
We are aware of issues encountered while downloading and playing the #StrangerOfParadise #FinalFantasy Origin Trial.
We are working to fix this issue and will tweet an update asap. We thank you for your patience.
