E3 2021 | Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin Announced
During the Square Enix Presents Summer Showcase, Square Enix Japan revealed a new Final Fantasy spin-off title. Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin seems to tell a story focused on the original Final Fantasy villain, Garland. Interestingly enough, he seems to claim the title of Chaos, which was his transformation in the original game. The protagonists are new Warriors of Light, tasked with killing Chaos, likely to close the Final Fantasy time loop. You can check out the reveal trailer below.
The game is in development by Team Ninja in a collaboration between Square Enix and Koei Tecmo. Gameplay looks reminiscent to Final Fantasy VII Remake, though without a command menu. Stranger of Paradise is expected to release sometime next year for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, and PC. A demo will be available for the PlayStation 5 soon.
