Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin Is an Action RPG from Team Ninja, PS5 Demo Out Today

Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin looks like Dark Souls and Final Fantasy had a baby, and it’s coming to PC and consoles sometime next year. Birthed out of a collaboration between Square Enix, Koei Tecmo Games, and Team Ninja, this more actiony take on the Final Fantasy franchise was announced during the Square Enix Presents E3 2021 digital presentation. It’s set to launch on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X | S sometime in 2022, but you won’t have to wait that long to play it. A free demo is launching exclusively on PlayStation 5 today and will be available until June 24.

Better yet, Final Fantasy VII Remake veterans Tetsuya Nomura and Kazushige Nojima are helping oversee the project. Square Enix offered a bit more about Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin’s story in a brief description that you can read below:

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!

Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin and its fast-paced Nioh-inspired combat was actually reported on last month. Watch the debut trailer below.
