Stranger Of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin divided players. Many were intrigued by the combat and design, though couldn’t come to terms with the downright silly contrast that was the characters and voice acting.
Plenty of others of course, adored every bit of it, and if more and more people can find their way onto the “adoring” Stranger Of Paradise boat, then a sequel could be in order, according to producer Tetsuya Nomura.
For those unaware, Stranger Of Paradise is set to have its final DLC release on January 27, 2023, and in a livestream celebrating that release, Nomura discussed the idea of a sequel.
Translated from a report by NoisyPixel, Nomura said
“When Stranger Of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origins first came out, there was a lot of negative bashing, especially onlie.
However, I’m please to say that everyone watching this livestream has grown very fond of Jack and his friends. So much so that some would love to see a sequel.
And if you do want that to happen, then it would certainly help if one person watching this spread the news to 10 other people. If word of mouth about the game spreads through the DLC’s completion, proving that this is a title that has really resonated with everyone, there may be a time when we can meet again.
I personally would love to work with Kumabe-san from Koei Tecmo again.”
It’s easy to say that a sequel is always dependent on the popularity of what came before, though that’s also because its usually true.
Stranger Of Paradise might be apart of the larger IP that is Final Fantasy, but it is still very unique within that world. So if you’re one of those people who would like a sequel, then it seems like you ought to make that known to Square Enix.
