Experience a DIFFERENT FUTURE in STRANGER OF PARADISE FINAL FANTASY ORIGINJack’s got a gun, a new Moogle ally and some dangerous new adversaries… including the Emperor and Omega! Find out all about them here.
Jack Garland has discovered the truth behind Chaos. He’s passed the Trials of the Dragon King and battled Gilgamesh… but his biggest challenge is yet to come.
The third and final additional mission for STRANGER OF PARADISE FINAL FANTASY ORIGIN is now available. Called DIFFERENT FUTURE, it pits Jack and his allies against threats old and new.
Read on and we’ll tell you all about it.
What is DIFFERENT FUTURE about?
Guided by an enigmatic moogle spirit, Jack and his allies travel to a city in another dimension.
Lufenians call this place Central. From here they observed a myriad of worlds and dimensions. Yet it took only the mad delusions of one Lufenian to bring it all to ruin.
Jack strides deep into the heart of this ghostly city to break the fetters of this karmic juggernaut once and for all.
Jack will meet a few new faces during his multidimensional adventure, a few of which may be familiar to FINAL FANTASY fans…
A spirit who comes to Jack and his allies for help in saving Lufenia from interdimensional interference and fixing a broken future.
The Emperor plans to take over the world, using all the magic and monsters at his disposal to do so, and his heart is set on the power of the crystals and chaos.
A darkly deluded Lufenian who interferes with dimensions.
Driven by a desire to restore the world to its former order and beauty, she summons otherworldly weapons from dimensional distortions with the aim of eradicating not just Jack, but the world itself.
Jack will face off against some powerful new adversaries during DIFFERENT FUTURE. He’ll need to be fighting at the top of his game to defeat these foes:
Omega is an interdimensional weapon with the power to destroy gods. It will hunt Jack down using its arsenal of skills more powerful than anything Jack has come across before.
Above: Delta Attack - as well as dealing damage, this move can petrify you as well, so watch out!
Above: Wave Cannon - a deployed arcane circle fires a powerful beam.
The Emperor appears before Jack and his allies, and he is hot on the trail of the moogle.
His motives for coming to this dimension are different from the Lufenian, and he seems to have no intention of teaming up.
Above: Thirst for Chaos - an arcane circle appears in the player’s wake, from which a number of magical orbs arise and explode.
Above: Demon’s Hymn - The Emperor summons a spectre who attacks you on his behalf. With this attack, he can summon gigas, coeurls and other monsters.
Jack’s got a new weapon type: guns. Three new jobs that use firearms are coming in DIFFERENT FUTURE:
Hitting an enemy with the Job Action “Stun Bullet” can prevent them from performing unblockable attacks.
While the Job Action “Analyse” is in effect, a counter will increase each time you attack an enemy. The higher the counter, the more easily you will be able to pierce an enemy’s resistance and strike their weak points.
Use the job action “Roulette” to spin the wheel and use any two abilities chosen at random.
New Blacksmith Feature: Fabrication
Fabrication is a new feature of the blacksmith. Some say that it’s a Lufenian technology.
It allows you to make replicas of equipment using imitation materials and blacksmith materials. It also makes it possible to replicate chaos effects.
Imitation materials are versatile materials that can be used at a blacksmith’s. Imitation materials can be used as a substitute for other materials when upgrading equipment or synthesising new items.
