Square Enix has revealed exciting new details for Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, the enhanced and expanded version of the critically acclaimed and award-winning Final Fantasy VII Remake on the PlayStation 5.
The team revealed the official title for the new episode featuring Yuffie as FF7R EPISODE INTERmission and introduced new information on the episode’s main character, Yuffie Kisaragi, as well as the talented English voice cast behind the new characters for this new episode.
Playing as the ultimate ninja thief
Players can look forward to utilizing Yuffie’s signature battle style in combat while they infiltrate the shadowy Shinra Corporation to steal a powerful materia and restore glory to her homeland, as she shines in both close and long-range combat. As a member of Wutai’s elite corps of ninja operatives, her Unique Ability allows her to throw her iconic massive throwing star at enemies. During that time, she is able to attack with long-range ninjutsu that can be augmented with her Elemental Ninjutsu ability, which can change its affinity to fire, ice, lightning or wind.
Another of Yuffie’s abilities, “Banishment,” unleashes an attack that does more damage based on how much ATB was spent before it. Similar to her Unique Ability, its elemental affinity can be changed with Elemental Ninjutsu.
Yuffie can also use “Windstorm,” which creates a damaging gust of wind that damages nearby enemies and launches them towards her. Players can look forward to learning even more about Yuffie’s specialized ninja fighting style and enjoy an expanded gameplay experience featuring multiple new combat and gameplay additions for FF7R EPISODE INTERmission.
Alongside Yuffie and Sonon, additional characters were introduced for FF7R EPISODE INTERmission. These include Zhijie, a Wutain who acts as the point of contact between the new Wutaian government. There are even members of Avalanche HQ—Nayo, Billy Bob, and Polk. And finally Weiss, the sadistic ruler of Shinra’s top-secret underground research centre Deepground.
