Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin has received a new patch, and it includes a welcome feature for GeForce users.

The official patch notes for Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin’s 1.12 update can confirm the addition of NVIDIA DLSS, which PC players will find under the System Settings menu after applying the patch. Comments found at r/StrangerofParadiseFFO from early testers would suggest that DLSS is effective at minimizing “insane” slowdown in some portions of the game, such as the evil forest.
