The Trial Version of Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin will be extended by two more days and will now end on June 26.
Initially, the exclusive PS5 demo was supposed to end on June 24, but due to unfortunate circumstances, the game was utterly unplayable as the file itself would corrupt when players attempted to play the demo following the Square Enix Showcase at E3 2021. Although, Square Enix quickly resolved this issue with a 1.03 patch for the game.
However, because of this situation, the demo has now been extended by two more days. The announcement came from a translated Famitsu interview on the official Square Enix website. In the interview, the game’s Creative Producer Tetsuya Nomura stated:
“Speaking of the trial version, since there was a period of time where it was unplayable due to issues on the day it was released, we’ve extended the period that it will be available by another two days. It will now be available until 14:59 (UTC), June 26, 2021. If you have the setup to play it, we would really appreciate it if you could give it a go and let us know any feedback that you might have. All the staff are working our hardest – so we hope you’ll continue to look out for the game.”
If your curious about the upcoming Final Fantasy spin-off from Team Ninja, then the interview is worth a read. Nomura explains that Stranger of Paradise is not a sequel or a prequel to the original Final Fantasy I but definitely shares the same setting.
“It’s a new story that uses FINAL FANTASY I as a motif, rather than being directly connected or an equivalent.”
