Unfortunately, it looks like the PS5 demo of Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin may be corrupted. The demo was launched after the Square Enix E3 2021 press conference, but some people were unable to play it.
After downloading the demo, you may be greeted with the following message: “Cannot continue using this game or application. The data is corrupted. Remove them from PS5 and then download from your library again. “
In a tweet, Team Ninja announced that they are aware of the problems and are working to resolve them. This demo is only available for a limited time (it will be available until June 24), so hopefully a fix will arrive as soon as possible.
Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin brings a gameplay formula more like Nioh to the Final Fantasy universe. In a press release, creative producer Tetsuya Nomura said, “Although this is Final Fantasy, it feels different, there is no doubt that Final Fantasy’s blood flows through its veins. We took it upon ourselves to find that tricky middle ground for this mature and stylish title. We need a little time to complete it, and although the combat system is bloody, it really does tie into the story, so I hope you take this opportunity to give it a shot. “
