It’s a good time to be a Final Fantasy Fan because the fan service just keeps on coming, and this time it’s in the form of new DLC for Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin. Square Enix has just released a new teaser trailer about the first DLC for our Chaos fighting band of strangers. The Trials of the Dragon King DLC is coming soon on the 20th of July.
The Trials of the Dragon King DLC will center around the biggest, baddest dragon that’s notoriously known across most Final Fantasy installments, Bahamut. This will be the first story-based DLC for the game and it will also come with new jobs, weapons and gear to play with. Additionally, you can expect to find new areas, challenges and story beats within this DLC to enrich your experience as a Stranger of Paradise.
Season Pass owners can expect to start playing the DLC once it gets released on the 20th of July, as it’s already included within the Season Pass.
Funnily enough, when people visited the website close to the announcement earlier to watch the teaser trailer, they were greeted by a different kind of persistent bard who may or may not have sang one of your favorite 80s classic songs.
@Ejspnge61 was fast enough to capture the moment for everyone to see before it was silently updated to show the actual teaser trailer soon after. In a chaotic sense, having Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” as a placeholder to an embedded link was a genius move. But alas, it was not meant to last, though it did indeed entertain us all for a short laugh.
In our review of Stranger of Paradise, Daniel Bueno wrote, “If people are willing to look past its facade and give it a chance, they will find something for them in this game. If it’s an electric and captivating combat system you are looking for, you have that here. If it’s the corny, funny and at times beautiful and nostalgic story, you’ll feel right at home.”
Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin is available on the Microsoft Store for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
