Stranger Of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin Announced By Square Enix

Stranger Of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is the next Final Fantasy spinoff being developed by an all-star team in collaboration with Team NINJA from KOEI TECMO GAMES.


During the finale of Square Enix keynote at E3 2021, the company unveiled an announcement trailer for its action-packed Final Fantasy spinoff game, Stranger Of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin. Final Fantasy veterans Tetsuya Nomura and Kazushige Nojima will be collaborating with Koei Tecmo Games' renowned action game studio Team Ninja in developing the said game title and deliver a bold new vision for Final Fantasy.


Legendary Final Fantasy director and producer, Tetsuya Nomura from Square Enix Japan, provided a statement sharing his thoughts about the upcoming action-heavy game, "While it is Final Fantasy, it feels different — but there’s no doubt that the blood of Final Fantasy runs through its veins. 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.”

The trailer presented a lot of in-game footage featuring a man named Jack, along with his colleagues Ash and Jed, facing off against their enemies throughout the gothic environment of the Chaos Shrine. The combat gameplay featured finishing techniques that transform monsters and other opponents into crystal, allowing them to be permanently destroyed, as well as the the classic Final Fantasy villain Garland who claims he has now become “Chaos".


Here is a description about the game via the announcement trailer available on YouTube.
With the memory of their struggle buried deep in their hearts... Jack and his allies, Ash and Jed, burn with resolve to defeat Chaos as they throw open the gates to the Chaos Shrine. Yet doubts remain — are they truly the Warriors of Light the prophecy foretold?  Step into a world of dark fantasy and revel in the exhilarating, action-packed battles.


A game demo is also coming to PlayStation 5 shortly, according to the teaser, which should have arrived on June 13, 2021 and will only be accessible until June 24, 2021. Stranger Of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is slated to launch in 2022 for Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC.
