New Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin Gameplay and Cutscenes Released

New gameplay and cutscenes for Square Enix and Koei Tecmo’s Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin have been released.

According to Hironobu Sakaguchi:

“Garland, who is defeated at the beginning of the story, is reborn 2000 years in the past as Chaos where he continues to rule over darkness, but is once again bested by the Warriors of Light… I created this endless cycle in the story because it was the first game in the series, and even though it is a pixel art RPG, I thought that by giving the story such layers, it wouldn’t just be viewed as some kind of “toy,” and we could elevate it to an authentic form of entertainment. That was the reason behind this decision. I think the same can be said for the scene when the player crosses the northern bridge, and the title and opening story text are shown on screen.”Hironobu Sakaguchi (Mistwalker Corporation CEO)

Akitoshi Kawazu added:

“The story of FF Origin is told through the eyes of Garland. It’s quite exciting to see this story depicted through the villain’s perspective. I’m interested to see what kind of emotional impact that the story of this game might have on players this time around. “As far as what happens to Garland… People who played the original FINAL FANTASY already know his fate, but I hope people will find appreciation in how this title portrays him. “So that’s what happened!?” “I’m almost in tears!” “These are the kinds of emotions I look forward to seeing from our players.”Akitoshi Kawazu (Square Enix)
