After a month of speculation, Square Enix Presents has officially confirmed Final Fantasy Origin is coming to PS5. Developed by Team Ninja, they're bringing us an action-RPG experience set within the world of the first Final Fantasy, after rumours first appeared last month.
Not to be confused with Final Fantasy Origins, a PS1 re-release which included remastered editions of Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy II, this spin-off takes us back to the original main entry's world. As part of this reveal, Square Enix has released this outline:
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!
Stranger Of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin Officially Confirmed For 2022 Launch
Unlike previous reports, Origin isn't a PS5 exclusive, though a demo is exclusively coming to Sony's new console "soon". Due to launch in 2022, Origin's also coming to PS4, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. It also features previous Final Fantasy talent assisting development, including Tetsuya Nomura and Kazushige Nojima.
Elsewhere during Square Enix Presents, we also got fresh looks at the upcoming Marvel’s Avengers Expansion: Black Panther - War for Wakanda, Babylon's Fall, Life is Strange: True Colors, and more. We'll keep you informed with our further E3 2021 coverage as it happens.
