The first Final Fantasy game launched on December 18, 1987, and Square Enix has special plans to celebrate its upcoming birthday. Since action game Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is deeply tied to the original entry in the series, its connection will be unraveled and more information will be revealed during a December 18 live stream.
Hatsune Matsushima will host the event, which will have voice actor Kasumi Ashizawa present along with Final Fantasy's Yoshinori Kitase, Tetsuya Nomura, Square Enix producer Masashi Fujiwara, and Square Enix director Daisuke Inoue. You'll be able to watch it via the video below.
If all the talk of Final Fantasy's birthday has you feeling nostalgic, Square Enix will also host a Let's Play broadcast of the Famicom original at the same time as the other stream.
Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is set to hit PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC (Epic Games Store) on March 18, 2022.
