Game dubbed Final Fantasy Origin could be unveiled during E3 2021. The rumor started a few days ago from a well-known insider on the forums of ResetEra, Navtra. It revealed that Square Enix would be making two major announcements a PS5-exclusive Final Fantasy title as well as a cross-gen Eidos game. For the first, we could believe the appearance of the second part of Final Fantasy VII Remake or another remaster. But no.
The Origin of the World
Our colleague Imran Khan from the site Fanbyte understands, anonymous sources support, that Final Fantasy Origin would be a spin-off of the saga, an action-RPG developed by Team Ninja, who knows the house a bit since she has already worked on Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. Exclusive to the PS5 and possibly intended for PC, the game would borrow Nioh’s style, and would therefore have a foot in Souls-like, everything has in the universe of the very first Final Fantasy of 1987 released on NES. The icing on the cake, a demo could be offered in the heart of summer.
Of course, nothing has been confirmed or denied by the Japanese publisher and we will use the tweezers of rigor and the conditional that is so lacking when we talk about singers at Eurovision. But if the plans are well established as we have been told, there will not be much to wait: E3 2021, 100% online, will be held from June 12 to 15.
