Square Enix is finally releasing Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin in a few days. Memes aside, the game appears to have the soul of Nioh in a package that retells the first-ever game in the Final Fantasy franchise. Here is when the Stranger of Paradise release date will be.
Stranger of Paradise Release Date: March 18, 2022
Strangers of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is set to release on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and the Xbox Series X on March 18, 2022.
Strangers of Paradise was first revealed back in E3 2021, with a demo released on the same day of its reveal. Back then, critic reception was mixed, especially thanks to the game’s main character being named Jack in a fantasy world, and him saying “I’m here to kill Chaos” over and over again. But further reveals made people more interested in the Final Fantasy I spin-off game. With Team Ninja (Nioh, Dead or Alive, Ninja Gaiden) at the helm, we all know that the game is in good hands. Further demos have also revealed that Strangers of Paradise does have a nice gameplay loop, which we hope would lead to a really great game once it releases in a few days.
There’s a new demo out, by the way, and, well, critic reception remains mixed. Can’t be helped, I guess, and there goes our wishful thinking.
