Square Enix, Ltd. today shared more details about FINAL FANTASY® REMAKE INTERGRADE, the enhanced and expanded version for the PlayStation®5 (PS5 ™) console of FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE, title that has received multiple awards and positive reviews. The team has confirmed that the official title of the new episode starring Yuffie it will be FF7R EPISODE INTERmission, as well as posting more information about Yuffie Kisaragi’s main character and the actors who will voice the new characters in this bonus episode in English.
Players will be able to use Yuffie’s signature fighting style in combat as she sets out to steal the supreme matter from the Shinra Power and Electricity Company. Yuffie excels at both close range and long-range attacks, and with the help of the main Avalanche cell, she will push herself into enemy terrain to restore glory to her homeland and take revenge at last. As a member of a group of elite Wutai ninjas, Yuffie provides a unique playstyle featuring the unmistakable oversized shuriken that she hurls at her enemies. While the shuriken is in the air, you can extend its range and power with ranged ninjutsu techniques and give it a Fire, Cold, Lightning or Wind element boost with the “Elemental Ninjutsu” skill.
Another of Yuffie’s abilities, called “Exorcism”, increases the power of the attack based on the number of BTC segments previously used. Like the ninjutsu techniques you use in conjunction with your shuriken, it is possible to incorporate elemental reinforcement with “Elemental Ninjutsu.”
Yuffie can also use “Whirlwind,” which generates a whirlwind of wind that deals damage and draws enemies towards her. On FF7R EPISODE INTERmission Players will be able to discover more about Yuffie’s unique ninja fighting style and enjoy an expanded experience that incorporates many new combat and gameplay features.
Junto to Yuffie y Sonon, FF7R EPISODE INTERmission incorporates additional characters, such as Zhijie, a man from Wutai who serves as a link between the new Wutaian government and the main Avalanche cell, the members of said cell (Nayo, Billy Bob and Polk), and Weiss, the ruthless leader of Deepground, Shinra’s Secret Research Center.
