Square Enix just released Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin on PC via Steam and permanently reduced its price to $39.99 USD across all platforms, making the game more accessible now than ever before! If you’re in my boat and haven’t yet played this Souls-like Final Fantasy spinoff, check out this story recap trailer courtesy of Square Enix:
Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin is an action-oriented, Team Ninja-developed retelling of the original Final Fantasy. Hero Jack and his band of allies set off on a quest to defeat Chaos, as Jack infamously announces in just about all of the game’s many trailers. Square Enix has followed the game up with three expansions since its original release in March 2022, and all three are also available on Steam.
RPGFan’s Izzy Parsons dug the game’s fast-paced yet strategic combat, robust class system, and music, but they were less keen on the loot system and world design. In addition to Steam, Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin is available on PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X|S, and PC via the Epic Games Store.
