Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin’s first expansion is just a few weeks away as Square Enix has announced a July 20 release date. The Trials of the Dragon King DLC is a hefty addition to the game which includes new items, areas, and more.
A new trailer was also released for the expansion (below), which shows a handful of new enemies alongside the titular Dragon King, known more commonly in Final Fantasy lore as Bahamut.
The DLC comes with new story missions, challenges, and areas to explore, alongside new jobs, weapons, accessories, and a new equipment category.
Square Enix has said Trials of the Dragon King will be available through the game’s Season Pass, which is currently available through the Digital Edition Upgrade for $30, but hasn’t made clear if the DLC will be available separately as well. The Season Pass will also provide access to the next two expansions: Wanderer of the Rift and Different Future.
Stranger of Paradise was released in March, and while the PC version struggled due to the anime hair being too epic, the game has since been updated to run better.
In our 8/10 review, IGN said: “Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin’s story doesn’t come together until the final hours, but when it does it pairs nicely with a solid and engaging action combat system and a strong dose of FF nostalgia.”
