About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin blends challenging and strategic action gameplay with the world and lore of the Final Fantasy series to create a unique action RPG experience.

Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is a new action-RPG from Team Ninja.

"While it is Final Fantasy, it feels different—but there's no doubt that the blood of Final Fantasy runs through its veins," said Tetsuya Nomura, Creative Producer for Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin. "We've undertaken the challenge of finding this difficult middle ground for this mature and stylish title. We need a little time until we're able to complete it, and while the battle system is a bloody one, it does link to the story, so I hope you'll use this opportunity to give it a try."

The Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin Trial Version will be available for free for PS5 from the PlayStation Store from June 13, 2021, through June 24, 2021 at 7:59 p.m. (PDT)/3:59 p.m. (BST).

The trial version gives players the opportunity to experience a taste of the full game centering on Jack and his allies — Ash and Jed — as they throw open the gates to the Chaos Shrine. Burning with the resolve to defeat Chaos, and with the memories of their struggle buried deep in their hearts, are they the foretold Warriors of Light? Players can explore this dark fantasy world as they battle an array of iconic monsters from the Final Fantasy series, using powerful spells and abilities from a sample of jobs including warrior, dragoon and black mage.

Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC in 2022.
