In case you missed the announcement at Square-Enix’s E3 2021 stream, Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is a Team Ninja developed prequel to the first Final Fantasy title which reimagines the origins of the big bad knight, Garland, who would go onto feature in the series.
The game looks set to include elements of Dark Souls style combat and exploration, likely pulling on Team Ninja’s heritage with the similarly designed Nioh games.
Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is set to release on PS4 and PS5 sometime in 2022.
