Stranger of Paradise is one of the more interesting Final Fantasy spin-offs. The action souls-like has resonated with fans of the franchise – including the game’s edgy protagonist. That being said, soon you will be able to select and play as any of the game’s party members in an upcoming free update.
Making the announcement on Twitter the official Stranger of Paradise account said “Want to play as someone other than Jack when playing Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin in single player? In the latest update coming to Trials of the Dragon King, you'll now be able to choose whether you fight as Jack or another of his recruited warriors.”
Often following a game’s launch one of the first mods made is one which allows for you to play as other characters within the game. It is interesting and exciting to see Square Enix offering this option in an official capacity.
It is currently unknown if the characters will share the same animations, or whether more bespoke translations of the combat will be made for each character – though it is likely to be the former.
Regardless, it is nice to see players being given the freedom to choose to play as whomever they want. Hopefully more games follow suit.
