The rumors are true. Final Fantasy Origin: Stranger of Paradise is real. Square Enix revealed the spin-off during its E3 presentation today. It is coming in 2022 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Team Ninja is developing Final Fantasy Origin: Stranger of Paradise. The game is a Souls-like, a genre Team Ninja already has experience in with its Nioh series.

Team Ninja has also worked on the Final Fantasy franchise before, developing the Dissidia Final Fantasy NT fighting game.

The game’s main character seems very hard and edgy. He also really hates Chaos.
