Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin is Out Now on Steam

The tale of Jack Garland and friends is finally available for Steam players on PC after one-year exclusivity to the Epic Games Store.

Square Enix’s bizarre yet oddly compelling Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin is now available for PC players via Steam. Developed by Team Ninja, the action RPG was previously exclusive to the Epic Games Store on PC. Along with the Standard Edition, the Deluxe Edition with the Season Pass is also on sale (sadly, no discounts for any of them).

As a prequel to the first Final Fantasy, it focuses on Jack Garland and his party, who seek to kill Chaos. Over time, they meet other characters, Neon and Sophia, while looking to restore the four Crystals of the world. The story gained notoriety for its writing, particularly Jack’s dialogue.

In terms of combat, it’s vaguely Souls-like, with the ability to equip different classes, execute enemies when their break gauge is empty, and temporarily steal magic. The Season Pass includes three more story-based DLC – Trials of the Dragon King, Wanderer of the Rift and Different Future – which add new bosses, missions and features.
