Team Ninja's take on mixing a bit of Ninja Gaiden with Final Fantasy finally has a release date, as Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin has been confirmed to be launching on March 18, 2022 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
As part of Square Enix's appearance at the Tokyo Game Show, the game's release date was shown along with an action-packed trailer showcasing how ferocious the real-time combat will be. Not only that, but a trial is also now available for all Xbox Series X|S owners to try out. Be quick though, as it's only available between October 1 and October 11. It's also worth noting any progress from the trial will not carry over to the full game.
Along with this news, some new gameplay and a ton of screenshots have also dropped. It's looking a lot more polished than its original showing and it seems as though Team Ninja has been working to fine-tune the experience following fan feedback.
This may be the only bit of Final Fantasy goodness we get for a while, as Final Fantasy 16 has been confirmed to be a timed console exclusive for PlayStation. Until that period runs out, Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin may be the closest we get to a brand-new Final Fantasy experience on Xbox for some time.
