Square Enix revealed one of the worst-kept secrets last month, that Final Fantasy VII Remake was receiving a next-gen update to fix all those shitty PS2 textures littered across the PS4 version of the game.
What we didn’t know about was Yuffie’s DLC episode, which is now officially called FF7R Episode INTERmission. It will cost you $19.99 for this new content. However, as a reminder the next-gen FF7R Intergrade update will be free for Gamers who bought the PS4 version. As a reminder those who downloaded FF7R as part of PS+ won’t be eligible for the free update.
Another reminder+, is that FF7R Episode INTERmission is a PS5 exclusive, so if you were expecting to enjoy on the last-gen console, I’m afraid I have some bad news.
Some good news though! Square Enix did drop some additional gameplay details regarding our girl Yuffie!
Yuffie shines in both close and long-range combat. As a member of Wutai’s elite corps of ninja operatives, she has a unique play style which 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 the ninjutsu attacks when she uses her throwing star, 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.
Square Enix also revealed the English voice cast!
