A re-imagining of the original Final Fantasy game, Stranger of Paradise tells the story of four "Warriors of Light," led by Jack, as they seek to eliminate an entity called Chaos from the world.
Jack and up to two teammates fight against enemies in various locales. Instead of a traversable world map, the game uses a hub menu of a map that skips directly to the player's dungeon of choice where they can play through the story or take on sidequests.
Stranger of Paradise does not feature turn-based fighting, battles take place in real-time. The game brings a lot of gameplay aspects like movement, exploration, and enemy behavior from Team Ninja's previous games Nioh and Nioh 2. Jack is able to parry attacks to mitigate damage, or even temporarily gain an enemy spell he can then fling back at the same enemy.
