The reports and rumors are true. Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is a new action game from Team Ninja. It’s set for a 2022 release window and will launch for PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
Origin of Final Fantasy was revealed during the Square Enix Presents event at E3 2021. A two-minute trailer was shown during the showcase, revealing some of the characters and its overall tone.
Games in Origin of Final Fantasy will differ greatly from the original games in the series, favoring real-time action instead of turn-based combat. It seems similar to Devil May Cry, or even Ninja Gaiden.
