Team Ninja, the team behind the brutally difficult Ninja Gaiden series, are sprinkling some of their magic into Final Fantasy. Their upcoming title, Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin, is heading to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S sometime next year.
The reveal trailer showcases the fast paced combat the team is known for. Instead of adopting the turn-based approach of past Final Fantasy entries, the new entry is going all-in with its visceral hack-and-slash combat and it's looking mighty impressive. We can't wait to hear more.
With the memory of their struggle buried deep in their hearts...
Jack and his allies, Ash and Jed, burn with resolve to defeat Chaos as they throw open the gates to the Chaos Shrine. Yet doubts remain—are they truly the Warriors of Light the prophecy foretold?
Step into a world of dark fantasy and revel in the exhilarating, action-packed battles!
In recent years the team has been focused on the Nioh series, which has only appeared on PlayStation and PC. It's great to see the developer return to Xbox for a new entry - especially one that's Final Fantasy related. It looks like it could be the Dark Souls x Final Fantasy game we never knew we wanted.
