According to a renowned leaker, Square Enix and Team-Ninja are collaborating on a Final Fantasy spin-off Souls-like game, and it will be a PlayStation 5 exclusive like FF7R.
Here's an interesting combo: Final Fantasy with a Dark Souls/Nioh/Jedi Order style of combat/gameplay.
According to SoulsHunt , a renowned leaker from France, this just might happen, and it could be announced by Square Enix very soon.
The souls-like Final Fantasy game is allegedly in the works by Square Enix with a commission by Team-Ninja, and it might possibly be called Final Fantasy Origin. Dark Souls and Jedi Order are mentioned in comparison.
Here's the translation of his tweets:
- It might possibly be called Final Fantasy Origin or something like it
- Team Ninja commission
- Souls-like, Jedi Fallen Order mentioned as a comparison point
- Demo this summer on the PSN to gather feedback
- PS5 only from what he knows (assuming a year like Nioh, could be more)
This rumour has also been confirmed by another industry insider (Navtra, ResetEra):
It's certainly Souls-inspired, but it's not exactly what you'd imagine when you hear "Souls-like FF".
For those who are not familiar with the Team-Ninja's portfolio and what can they bring to a Final Fantasy game, they are a Japanese studio behind critically acclaimed souls-like games Nioh and Nioh 2, Ninja Gaiden action-adventure game series, as well as fighting game series Dead or Alive.
