SQUARE ENIX today announced STRANGER OF PARADISE FINAL FANTASY ORIGIN, revealed as part of the SQUARE ENIX PRESENTS livestream at E3. The new action RPG has been made in collaboration with Team NINJA from KOEI TECMO GAMES, creators of the NINJA GAIDEN and Nioh series, and brings a new vision to the FINAL FANTASY series. Players will be able to purchase STRANGER OF PARADISE FINAL FANTASY ORIGIN on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC in 2022.

Comments from Tetsuya Nomura and Fumihiko Yasuda
“While it is FINAL FANTASY, it feels different—but there's no doubt that the blood of FINAL FANTASY runs through its veins,” said Tetsuya Nomura, Creative Producer for STRANGER OF PARADISE FINAL FANTASY ORIGIN. “We've undertaken the challenge of finding this difficult middle ground for this mature and stylish title. We need a little time until we're able to complete it, and while the battle system is a bloody one, it does link to the story, so I hope you'll use this opportunity to give it a try.”

“I'm truly happy to be involved with a new FINAL FANTASY, and a title connected to its origin at that,” said Fumihiko Yasuda, Head of Team NINJA at KOEI TECMO GAMES. “Using the feedback that the players provide after playing the trial version, all of us at Team NINJA will work to make this a title that meets the expectations of not only action game fans, but also FINAL FANTASY series fans around the world!”
Story

You take the role of Jack who, along with allies Ash and Jed, sets off on a quest to defeat Chaos. Burning with resolve, and with memories of their struggle deep in their hearts, are they the foretold Warriors of Light?

Your journey will take you into a dark and challenging fantasy world, filled with iconic monsters from the FINAL FANTASY series. Fortunately, Jack isn’t exactly defenseless - he can use powerful spells and abilities from a range of jobs, including warrior, dragoon and black mage.

Trial available on PS5 from June 13th to June 24th 2021

The STRANGER OF PARADISE FINAL FANTASY ORIGIN TRIAL VERSION was also announced during the showcase, which gives players the opportunity to experience a taste of the full game centering on Jack and his allies—Ash and Jed—as they throw open the gates to the Chaos Shrine.

Players of the STRANGER OF PARADISE FINAL FANTASY ORIGIN TRIAL VERSION can explore this dark fantasy world as they battle an array of iconic monsters from the FINAL FANTASY series, using powerful spells and abilities from a sample of jobs including warrior, dragoon and black mage.

I think it looks interesting. Even if the dialogue is a bit clunky and the name choices are.....unique?

Yeah, the dialogue is cheesy, but it's Team Ninja, lol. No wonder Nintendo gets veery involved when they work alongside them (Hyrule Warriors, Age of Calamity). Anyways, I'm pumped for the game. Can't wait to see how they deal with the rest of the world from FFI

Even if the game doesn't look good visually, i hope the gameplay is enough to save it.
will try the demo when it gets fixed

This thing desperately needed more time in the oven before they revealed it to the world, but I'm not sure it would have done them all that much good.

The names are terrible choices but at least it's not as bad as Clive 8D

Christ, that dialogue was pure cheese.

And a limited trial for PS5 users. Feeling ever more alienated by SE.

The vibes I'm getting from most of Square these days (though FF14 seems immune right now) is they're overworking some... certainnn creative staff and the juices are running dry all around. They're making too many mistakes all at once and it's not a good look.

It feels like those parodies of things you see characters in a story watch on TV.

By the way, did you hear the news? Apparently the protagonist wants to kill Chaos.
