Just a few months after we got our first glimpse of Square Enix announced a release date at the Tokyo Game Show. It will be released for PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, and PC on March 18.
Stranger in Heaven: Final Fantasy Origin is an attempt to bring a Dark Souls style feel to the Final Fantasy universe. It’s an action RPG of Developer Team Ninja which everyone thinks will be quite difficult, which fits the vibe of Souls.
A new trailer gives some clues to the story and a glimpse of some of the beings you’ll meet, including a pirate with a huge ax and a multi-headed monster. The visuals still look a bit rough, but at least Team Ninja and Square Enix have a few months to polish things up.
Meanwhile, Square Enix released a second demo. This is an expansion of the first timed trial which was available in June, only this time you can play with your friends on PS5 and Xbox Series X / S. There are more enemies to test your mettle against, new areas to explore, and additional play styles and jobs to discover. The demo is available until October 11 at 10:59 a.m. ET.
Stranger in Heaven: Final Fantasy Origin has a free upgrade path from PS4 and Xbox One to PS5 and Xbox Series X / S respectively. In addition to the base game, you can pre-order a Digital Deluxe Edition, which includes additional missions, a digital artbook, and a mini soundtrack. Pre-ordering either version will earn you some in-game goodies, and you’ll have early access to the entire game 72 hours before official launch.
