Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin’s new trailer is brave enough to feature Frank Sinatra

Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin isn’t a remake, nor is it a prequel to the original Final Fantasy, which celebrates its 35th anniversary later this year. Instead, the upcoming action-heavy Final Fantasy spinoff is something of an interpretation of the classic role-playing game’s time-looping story.

A new (and final) trailer for the game, featuring the music of Frank Sinatra, hints at its emotional, tragic stakes.

Players will experience that story from the perspective of Jack and his allies, believing themselves to be prophetic Warriors of Light, infamously on a mission to kill Chaos, the final boss of the original Final Fantasy. There’s much about Jack and his fellow wannabe Warriors of Light that remains a mystery going into Stranger of Paradise. And a new trailer for the upcoming game, due in March, adds more mystery — or possibly some new hints about how Jack and company’s mission to kill Chaos will turn out.

The developers of Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin have already essentially spoiled one component of their game: Jack is Jack Garland, aka Garland, aka the other big bad guy from Final Fantasy who created that game’s 2,000-year time loop and ultimately transforms into Chaos. Jack’s allies may also represent the famous fiends that players faced in Final Fantasy and will face in Stranger of Paradise, and the latter game’s new trailer shows three of them — Kraken, Lich, and Marilith — in action. The fourth, Tiamat, was previously revealed.

Given Jack Garland’s turn as ostensible protagonist into the antagonist Garland, I asked Fujiwara why the team decided to reveal his fate so early — and whether Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin is a tragedy.

“With our introduction of the title we showed that, for a Warrior of Light, [Jack] seemed a lot more violent than your typical hero,” Fujiwara said. “The team thought rather than having it suspended up in the air — with players kind of speculating ‘Wait, this is a lot more violent than we’d expected. This hero character seems to be a lot older and more mature compared to your typical Final Fantasy protagonist.’ — rather than misleading people, the team felt that it would be better if we were more transparent about what the story was going to be about. That’s why we decided that we wanted to reveal this as a story about the villain, but that there is a rich story behind it that we want to show. I felt that that would allow for us to communicate to our players a lot more clearly.”

Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin will be released March 18, for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC (via the Epic Games Store), Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
