Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin’s Different Future Detailed
Square Enix released new media and information for Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin‘s final DLC, Different Future, ahead of its release next week. The DLC sees Jack and his allies guided by a moogle to a city in a different dimension. Known to the Lufenians as Central, they used to observe multiple other worlds, but it was brought to ruin by a certain Lufenian.
The DLC features two new characters, the moogle spirit who seeks out Jack to fix a broken future and the Emperor, a being who plans to take over the world using magic and monsters. In addition to the Emperor, the DLC also adds a major new enemy in Omega, an interdimensional weapon built with enough power to destroy gods.
Different Future will add three new jobs to the game: Musketeer, Hunter, and Gambler. Musketeer lets players use its Stun Bullet to stop enemies from using unblockable attacks. Hunter lets players “Analyse” enemies, which sees a counter increase the more that enemy is attacked, making it easier to pierce their resistances. Finally, Gambler uses the Roulette action to spin a wheel and use two abilities chosen from it at random. Other additions are new features to blacksmithing. Imitation materials are versatile resources that can be used to substitute for others, while fabrication lets players make replicas of equipment, including their chaos effects.
Different Future will release for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on January 27, 2023, as part of the game’s Season Pass. Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin itself is a reimagining of the first title in the Final Fantasy series and is developed by Koei Tecmo’s Team Ninja division. It follows Jack and his companions as they aim to restore the light to the crystals of the kingdom of Cornelia at the behest of its king.
