Square Enix has revealed Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin, a prequel action RPG set in the Final Fantasy universe.
The game was first revealed as part of last night’s Square Enix Presents Summer Showcase. As was previously rumoured, the adventure is a collaboration between Square Enix and Nioh developer Team Ninja and is being heralded as a “bold new vision” for the series.
You’ll be playing as Jack and his allies Ash and Jed as they “throw open the gates to the Chaos Shrine”. As the press release reads “Burning with the resolve to defeat Chaos, and with the memories of their struggle buried deep in their hearts, are they the foretold Warriors of Light?”
One detail the rumour did get wrong, however, was the claim that this would be a PlayStation exclusive, with the game confirmed to be launching on Xbox consoles as well as PC too. However, it has received a free demo exclusively on the PlayStation 5. Those interested can grab it from the PlayStation Store between now and June 24 and give the game a go for themselves.
Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin launches in 2022 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC.
