Final Fantasy is virtually synonymous with being additional, and tonally, the trailer for Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin undoubtedly follows swimsuit. The gang’s objective is to defeat Chaos, in spite of everything. So it’s kinda humorous to see this action-packed drama options apparel and character design that appears about as normie as a 7/11 car parking zone.

Now, I’m certain there’s a good motive for this. The title alone means that, maybe, Paul Walker right here has been pulled into a distinct actuality—so after all there’s a little bit little bit of dissonance. Plus, as my colleagues right here at Kotaku kindly identified to me, video games like Final Fantasy XV do provide extra informal outfits.

While that’s true, I’d additionally say that Prompto and the gang are low key, which isn’t the identical as normie. You get the sensation, earlier Final Fantasy protagonists, that they in all probability spend hours preparing within the rest room earlier than going out like that. At the very least, the hair styling alone for a lot of extra informal FF protagonists continues to be doubtless worthy of its personal funds line.

The man above, who might or is probably not named Chad, simply kinda appears like some dude that you simply may meet at a fuel station. There’s nothing fallacious with that, after all, and primarily based on among the screenshots, it looks as if you’ll be capable to equip extra elaborate clothes, like so:

But I can’t be the one one struck by a few of this official character design artwork, proper?

The guys above seem like dudes I’d truly know. Arguably, that’s a feat in itself, so far as plausible costuming goes. It’s actually a step up over the generic blond main this journey. So whereas none of that is dangerous, it’s additionally simply not fairly what I’m used to on the subject of Final Fantasy. Right now, it’s trying intentional.

“While it’s Final Fantasy, it feels totally different—however there’s little doubt that the blood of Final Fantasy runs by means of its veins,” creative producer Tetsuya Nomura wrote in a press release. “We’ve undertaken the challenge of finding this difficult middle ground for this mature and stylish title. We need a little time until we’re able to complete it, and while the battle system is a bloody one, it does link to the story, so I hope you’ll use this opportunity to give it a try.”
