The trailer confirms that the main character Jack is related to the antagonist of the first Final Fantasy title, Garland. We also get a glimpse of the Fiend of Wind, Tiamat. It should also be noted that Jack’s signature T-shirt has been upgraded to something more fitting for the fantasy setting.
Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin will release on March 18, 2022, on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC on the Epic Games Store. Pre-orders are now open, and a new demo is currently available.
