Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin pre-order bonuses

If you're planning on pre-ordering this new Souls-like spin-off of the Final Fantasy series, we've got an overview of all the pre-order bonuses here.

While Elden Ring may be keeping many gamers busy at the moment, that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be excited for Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin, which comes out on March 18. If it’s on your radar and you’re thinking about buying it, here’s everything you need to know before you order, including information about all the Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy pre-order bonuses.

Made to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the Final Fantasy franchise, Stranger of Paradise actually takes us back to the very first game in the series, but gives it a completely new reinterpretation. Instead of a retro, top-down turn-based RPG, you’ve got a new, fully 3D action RPG, with each different area on the world map paying tribute to a past Final Fantasy game.

The game has been described as ‘Souls-like’, so if you’ve been enjoying Elden Ring and would love to see the formula applied to the long-running Final Fantasy series, this could be the game for you. Team Ninja, the game’s developers, are renowned for creating fantastic combat systems, so this is sure to be a game that is both challenging and rewarding.

Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin Pre-Order Bonuses

If you’re planning to pre-order the game, there are a few different Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin pre-order bonuses available to you. Here’s an overview of each edition and the pre-order bonuses that they’ll get you:


Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin Standard Edition Pre-Order Bonuses

Available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S the standard pre-order will get the physical copy of the game to your door on the day of its release. On top of that, you’ll also be rewarded with a nice early purchase bonus – the Rebellion weapon. It’s always good to get a leg up on your weapon stash with a game like this. Also worth noting is that if you pre-order physically from the UK retailer, Game, you’ll get an exclusive steelbook edition.


Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin Digital pre-order Bonuses

For those who opt to get the game digitally, there are a few extra benefits in addition to the early purchase bonus mentioned above. Here’s everything you get if you pre-order a digital copy of the game:

  • Early access: can’t wait to play the game? Well, with this, you won’t have to – not for as long, anyway. Those who pre-order digitally will be able to play from March 15 onwards.
  • Braveheart weapon: another handy weapon that’ll help you to get started in the early days of the game. It was one of the highest-ranking swords in the original Final Fantasy and has appeared in several other games since.
  • Lustrous Shield: prefer to play defensively? Well, you’ll be pleased to learn that you also get the Lustrous Shield, an item with a long history in the Final Fantasy multiverse.

Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin Digital Deluxe Edition Pre-Order Bonuses

This is the fanciest of the three editions and the one that’ll get you the most extra goodies. If you’re a Final Fantasy fan who wants to go all-out and get the Digital Deluxe edition, here’s what you can expect:

  • All previously mentioned pre-order and early purchase bonuses.
  • Season Pass: there are going to be three special missions only available via the Season Pass, so by buying the Digital Deluxe edition, you’re making sure you’ll be able to access all of the game’s content.
  • Digital artbook: giving you a chance to more deeply appreciate the artistic work that went into the game’s creation.
  • Digital mini soundtrack: listen to the music from the game whenever you want – knowing the Final Fantasy track record, this is going to be exceptional.
  • PS4 theme: naturally, this is exclusive to the PS4 version of the game, but it’ll give PS4 gamers an opportunity to enhance their home screens.

These are all of the different versions of the game. It’s curious that they’ve opted to include more bonuses with digital copies than with physical ones, but perhaps they’re keen to incentivise digital purchases to cut down on shipping and resources. We hope this overview helps you to decide which version will be best for you.
