Team NINJA and KOEI TECMO revealed their new chaotic action RPG, Stranger of Paradise, at the Square Enix Presents broadcast during E3 2021.

Players take on the role of Jack, a mysteriously unarmored hero who, alongside his allies Jed and Ash, has a singular desire—nay, a need: to kill "Chaos." The three supposedly make up the prophetic trio of warriors known as the "Warriors of Light."

The three have been sent into the tower to find and defeat Chaos while searching for a fellow knight who had gone missing: Garland.

When can players enter the Shrine of Chaos? We've got you covered.

Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin Explained

Some fans may recognize Garland from his role in the first Final Fantasy game. Unfortunately, that search and rescue mission is much more chaotic than it seems. It appears that Garland, himself, has become Chaos during his time in the Shrine of Choas—and Chaos has been waiting for the Warriors of Light since they entered his domain.

Will Jack be able to fulfill his goal to kill Chaos at the Shrine of Chaos despite Chaos' chaotic reveal as the knight, Garland? Players can find out by playing the free trial of the game on PlayStation 5 through to June 24.
