Recently, a leak suggested that Team Ninja, the studio behind Nioh, was working on a Dark Souls-inspired game set in the Final Fantasy Universe. At the recent Square Enix E3 conference, the game was officially confirmed – with a demo available to download right now.
Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin is described as follows: “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!”
As mentioned, the game is an action-RPG in the style of Team Ninja’s own Nioh franchise, and the FromSoftware titles – though with a lot more party chatter. Coming to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC in 2022, PS5 players can get an early look at the game.
Available right now is a limited-timed demo of the game exclusively for PS5 players, which runs from today all the way until the 24th of June, giving PS5 players a very early and exclusive look at the game.
Team Ninja has proven they know how to make an action-RPG twice over with Nioh and its sequel. It will be interesting to see how the team adapts the world of Final Fantasy into this style, and how they will manage to maintain the franchise’s unique identity.
