Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is a new step for the franchise, taking it in the direction of souls-like games in recent years. With unique weapons, tough bosses, and explorable Metroidvania-esque environments the game has a lot to do to convince fans that it is worthy of the Final Fantasy name.
But, after a demo was released earlier in 2021, Square Enix has gathered feedback from it to help fine-tune development and make changes that fans want. We are still yet to hear what those changes are, but it won’t be long before we hear more from both Team Ninja and Square Enix.

Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin Gameplay
Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin changes the franchise’s gameplay significantly as it moves away from its JRPG roots to an action-focused RPG experience, similar to what we have seen in Dark Souls and Darksiders.
The game’s protagonist Jack will traverse through linear locations, collecting resources which you will lose if you die. On top of that, the game features respawning enemies in these locations either when you rest or die, and shortcuts can be opened up by exploring levels.
At the end of each section of the game, you will face a tough boss who will throw everything they can at you, with you needing to level up, equip new classes, and purchase more skills to take them on.
