Fans who rushed to see the DLC trailer of Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin on the official site of Square Enix they met Rick Astley.
The expansion Trials of the Dragon King for final fantasy origin has just been revealed as the first major expansion to arrive as part of the game’s season pass which arrives on July 20. The game official website was updated with what should have been a trailer for upcoming content, but when early fans tried to watch the trailer, they were met with the song Never gonna give you up.
While the trailer has since been fixed to show the intended teaser, user Twitter Emmett Watkins Jr. he was able to record his own experience trying to watch the trailer, simply saying “no way”.

It’s not clear how or why Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley was uploaded instead of the trailer, especially since the youtube version of the trailer had no problems. It took a few hours before the official trailer was successfully uploaded to the official site, which could lead hundreds of Final Fantasy fans to be Rickrolled. There has been no official comment on the apparent bug.
the Trials of the Dragon King is the first of three planned DLC packs for final fantasy origin and previously had no release date. This DLC will include three new quests: Trials of the Dragon King, Wanderer of the Rift, and Different Future.
final fantasy origin, a reimagining of the first Final Fantasy game, it’s no stranger to weird marketing tactics involving music. The trailer involving Jack playing Limp Bizkit-style rock music from his phone led many to believe the developers were in on the joke, and if this Rickroll was intentional, it certainly did his job of drawing more eyes to the game.
