Square Enix confirmed during their E3 panel rumors of a Final Fantasy game inspired by the Dark Souls series of games.
Titled Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin, the game is being developed by Team Ninja and co-published by Koei Tecmo Games.
The new trailer shows a group of three adventures setting out to destroy a being called chaos.
Towards the end of the trailer, the party confront an armored knight named Garland, and address themselves as “the Heroes of Light.” This confirms that the action RPG is a retelling of sorts of the very first Final Fantasy game first released on the Nintendo Famicom in 1987.
This “bold new vision for Final Fantasy” is slated for a 2022 release on the PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC.
A demo will also be made available “soon” for PS5 users.
