A Square Enix game’s Epic Games Store exclusivity is about to end. The company announced Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is coming PCs via Steam at the same time as a price drop across all platforms. The new price for the game, which was originally $59.99, hasn’t been announced as of 10am ET on March 16, 2023. However, the Steam version will debut on April 6, 2023.
Here’s the official announcement, which is accompanied by a new trailer. As a reminder, this is an alternate take on the original Final Fantasy story, with Jack and his allies setting off to defeat Chaos. Rather than a turn-based RPG, it is more like a Soulslike. Jack is able to take on different classes to augment his abilities.
Note that if you’re unfamiliar with the game, there will be spoilers in the new video below. It doesn’t mention the new Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin price either.
Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin launches on Steam April 6th.
The game is also now available at a permanently discounted price.
You've heard that chaos awaits, but are you ready for what trials you may face?
