Rumoured Team Ninja Final Fantasy Game is Called “Final Fantasy Origin”; Set in the World of FF1

Souls and Nioh-inspired, but will allegedly be more accessible.

Out of nowhere, we’ve heard multiple reports from multiple credible sources over the last few days that Square Enix is going to announce a new PS5-exclusive Final Fantasy action RPG spinoff. Though allegedly not exactly as “high-end” as mainline numbered entries, this game definitely seems to have an interesting concept- it’s inspired by the likes of Dark Souls and is being made by Koei Tecmo’s internal studio, Team Ninja, who made Nioh.

Now, a report published on Fanbyte by Imran Khan corroborates all of those details, while also potentially revealing several new details on top of that. Most notable, of course, is the game’s name- allegedly, it’s going to be called Final Fantasy Origin. The game is apparently set in the world of the very first Final Fantasy game, and is being developed largely by the same Team Ninja team that worked on Final Fantasy fighting spinoff Dissidia NT- though Khan notes in his report that as a studio employing over 200 people, there’s some flexibility there about who will and won’t be working on it.

Meanwhile, Khan also adds that there will be a demo released for the game in the Summer (which has been mentioned in other leaks as well) to collect feedback from players, similar to what Team Ninja did for Nioh 2 as well. The demo will be called “Stranger in Paradise”. The plan, apparently, is to announce Final Fantasy Origin at E3, so as always, things can always change, so don’t be surprised if the game’s reveal ends up getting shifted to some Sony-specific event down the road.

Interestingly enough, Khan has also mentioned on Twitter that though the game is Souls and Nioh-inspired, it’ss going to be “easier to get into”. Considering the worldwide appeal of something like Final Fantasy, it makes sense that Square Enix will want something that’s more accessible than Soulslike games usually are.

This is all unverified information right now, of course, but given how many leaks we’ve had corroborating the same information over the last few days, it seems like it’s only a matter of time before we hear something official about this. Stay tuned for more updates.
