Stranger Of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin Announced
Stranger Of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin announced by Square Enix during E3 2021 showcase.
Koei Tecmo Games and Square Enix Japan have teamed up to develop “a bold new vision for Final Fantasy.” This new action game has been dubbed Stranger Of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin.
The trailer was presented as the finale to the Square Enix E3 show had plenty of in-game footage. A t-shirt wearing blonde man named Jack battles alongside his cohorts Ash and Jed throughout the gothic environment of the Chaos Shrine revealing this is a departure from the gameplay one would expect from a classic Final Fantasy. Combat looks to include finishing moves that turn monsters and other enemies into crystal to permanently dispose of. The trailer also features the classic Final Fantasy villain Garland who claims he has now become “Chaos,” a word that is uttered throughout the trailer footage. Jack claims he has a deep urge to destroy Chaos. While that term refers to Garland or a grander concept is unclear.
Final Fantasy Origin is being developed by Team Ninja and features character designs from legendary Final Fantasy director and producer Tetsuya Nomura. Handling the story is Final Fantasy scenario writer Kazushige Nojima. Both developers were big players in bringing the Final Fantasy 7 series to life.
The trailer announced a demo is coming to PlayStation 5 “soon,” and is supposed to arrive today and will only available until June 24, 2021. Stranger Of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is coming in 2022 for Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC.
