Square Enix, Koei Tecmo, and Team Ninja have revealed the teaser trailer for Wanderer of the Rift, the second DLC expansion for Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin, and shared a release date of October 26, 2022. The Wanderer of the Rift release date trailer and promotional art most prominently feature Gilgamesh, the fan-favorite franchise character who originally appeared in Final Fantasy V. You can hear a bit of the song “Battle on the Big Bridge” in there as well.
This expansion adds the Labyrinth of Dimensions, “a dungeon that randomly configures your path to unlock pieces of the story,” in addition to new equipment and abilities and new “Chaotic Monsters” that provide a more diverse challenge. There is also a new Blue Mage class and “special monsters you can fight and summon into battle with the use of a Summoning Stone.”
Wanderer of the Rift is available as part of the Stranger of Paradise season pass, which includes three expansions in total. The first expansion, Trials of the Dragon King, launched in July and featured Bahamut and the Warrior of Light. The final expansion, Different Future, is coming soon. Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, and PC via Epic Games Store.
