Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin: PS5 demo doesn't work, Square Enix looks for solutions

Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin

Square Enix aired their E3 2021 show last night, showing various of the games coming to PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S, as well as mobile. Among others, there was space for Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin, the action game from Team Ninja. The first impact was not positive for many, but the hope is that the PS5 demo, now available, will feel better. Unfortunately, the demo does not work and Square Enix is ​​still looking for a solution.

As you can see below, the official Twitter account of Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin reports that there is a problem with the free PS5 demo and that right now the team is trying to resolve the issue. Unfortunately at the moment this is all we know: the developers will provide us with new information as soon as possible and thank us for your patience.

Stranger of Paradise PS5 demo Final Fantasy Origin is downloadable, but attempting to start will indicate that the file is corrupt and cannot be run. The console itself recommends that you delete the game and try the download again. Obviously, until we have confirmation from Square Enix, we recommend that you avoid downloading the PlayStation 5 demo.

In the meantime, we remind you that you can see the trailer at this address. Finally, here is what we learned about the basic ideas of the game, pointed out by Nomura.

The rumors are true. Final Fantasy Origin: Stranger of Paradise is real. Square Enix revealed the spin-off during its E3 presentation today. It is coming in 2022 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Team Ninja is developing Final Fantasy Origin: Stranger of Paradise. The game is a Souls-like, a genre Team Ninja already has experience in with its Nioh series.

Team Ninja has also worked on the Final Fantasy franchise before, developing the Dissidia Final Fantasy NT fighting game.

The game’s main character seems very hard and edgy. He also really hates Chaos.

But, hey, Garland from the first Final Fantasy showed up in the trailer! I guess that’s why it’s called Origin. And as a reader points out, the first Final Fantasy’s main boss is also called … Chaos.

Update, 1:25 p.m. Sunday with a note about the first Final Fantasy boss.
