Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin Now Available on Steam, Now Where’s Kingdom Hearts?

Square Enix and Koei Tecmo have announced that the Team Ninja-developed action game Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is now available on PC via Steam for $39.99, with an alternative $59.99 Deluxe Edition containing the three post-launch DLC scenarios, Trials of the Dragon King, Wanderer of the Rift, and Different Future.

Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is also available on PC via the Epic Games Store, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.

With this game and NEO: The World Ends with You now on Steam, I and many others are left wondering if Kingdom Hearts will receive the same treatment. I sincerely hope it does, so I get another reason to replay them for the umpteenth time. Still, all we can do is wait and hope.

Throughout Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin, players control protagonist Jack Garland as he and his allies, Jed, Ash, Sophia, and Neon, aim to eliminate Chaos at its root and bring peace to the realm of Cornelia. However, despite the apparent simplicity of the task before them, their memories are haphazard and incomplete, leading to questioning motivations.

The gameplay is Nioh-like, with a variety of loot to obtain for better gear and several swappable Jobs representative of the Final Fantasy franchise at large. Multiplayer is also present.

New artwork of Jack Garland was shared by producer Tetsuya Nomura to commemorate this Steam port, viewable below alongside a message to fans translated by our team’s Ryuji:

“The Steam version of Stranger of Paradise is now available. For those who have yet to experience it, I urge you to play it. For those who already own it, be on the lookout for the latest update also coming out today. This concludes Jack’s story, but I’m sure he will continue to fight on. Thank you very much.
