Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin’s box art has been revealed by Square Enix. The box art has a predominatly white background like previous Final Fantasy titles, partial character portraits making up the right side of the box. There also appears to be a red and black wave across the bottom that blends into the portraits, and it could be symbolism for the spread of Chaos. After all, Chaos is something that needs to be killed.
