Square Enix and Team Ninja continue to work on their new collaboration, nothing more and nothing less than a action title brand new set in the Final Fantasy universe. Announced during E3 2021, Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin has already reached out to players through two demos, but now it does so through visuals and new details.
These are the new characters
Among the characters that we will meet during the adventure is Captain Bikke, a pirate played by Jake Eberle (Kousuke Gotou in the Japanese version). According to his official description, this privateer rules Pravoka city and wields a powerful ax. Of course, the pirate business has not been going well for a long time, since the ocean has plunged into darkness and it is no longer possible to venture into its unruly waters.
In the role of cornelia king there is Fred Tatasciore (Mugihito in the Japanese version), a monarch who has seen something special in Jack, the protagonist of Stranger of Paradise, so he has placed all his hopes on him. In fact, he suspects that he and his companions may be the Warriors of Light from legend.
The Ministro LagoneFor his part, he has the voice of Tom Taylorson (Akio Hirose in Japanese) and is determined to find the person who fits Luhkan’s prophecy. Another of the notable protagonists is the reina Jayne (Mary Elizabeth McGlynn / Miyuki Ichijou), así como My (Isabella Crovetti / Natsuki Inaba). The latter, like her sister Sara, is concerned for Cornelia’s people and has often clashed with ministers.
A little more about skills
As an action game, one of the most important elements is the combat system. When using the combos and skills, the yellow bar that appears on the enemies is progressively reduced. When completely depleted, Jack can unleash a powerful attack that will crystallize the opponent, so he can finish him off in one hit. Of course, the protagonist has a similar indicator, although he recovers over time
Skills with the name in purple can be blocked using the spirit shield. Then, you will have the opportunity to use that power. The main advantage of these instant abilities is that they do not consume magic points. On the other hand, touching a cube will restore life, magic, potions, etc., but defeated monsters will be resurrected.
Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin will take us to locations like Pravoka, where we can also visit the port under the caves. The game will go on sale on March 18th para PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S y PC.
