Game company Square Enix recently revealed new details for upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade.
The enhanced and expanded version of the critically acclaimed and award-winning FFVIIR will be launched on the PlayStation 5 console soon. The team behind it revealed that the title for the new episode that features Yuffie is officially called FF7R Episode INTERmission. They shared new information about the episode’s main character, Yuffie Kisaragi, and the official English voice cast behind the new characters.
Yuffie will use her signature battle style in combat while slowly infiltrating the shadowy Shinra Corporation to steal powerful materia and restore the glory to her homeland. She is proficient in both close and long-range combat since she is 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 can attack with long-range ninjutsu that can be augmented with her Elemental Ninjutsu ability. It can change its affinity to fire, ice, lightning, or wind.
Banishment is another ability that Yuffie uses, which unleashes an attack that does more damage based on how much ATB was spent before it. It has a similar ability to her Unique Ability, which is to change elemental affinities.
Windstorms is a damaging gust of wind that damages nearby enemies and launches them towards Yuffie. Fans and newcomers can look forward to learning more of her specialized ninja fighting style and enjoy an expanded gameplay experience in FF7R Episode INTERmission.
Aside from Yuffie and Sonon, there are more characters added in this new episode like Zhijie, a Wutain who acts as the point of contact between the new Wutain government and Avalanche HQ, members of Avalanche HQ like Nayo, Billy Bob, and Polk. There is also Weiss, the sadistic ruler of Shinra’s top-secret underground research center Deepground.
