Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade – Yuffie DLC called Episode Intermission
Square Enix has unveiled the title for the Yuffie PS5 exclusive DLC for the Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade which is called Episode Intermission. The episode features main character Yuffie Kisaragi, and new details were revealed about the story for this episode.
Yuffie will be infiltrating the Shinra Corporation, to steal a powerful materia, in the process trying to “restore glory to her homeland”. Yuffie will utilise both close and long-range combat, and is a member of Wutai’s elite corps of ninja operatives. Her unique ability lets her throw a large throwing star at enemies, in true ninja style.
Her ability also allows her to attack with long-range ninjutsu moves, that can be augmented with her Elemental Ninjutsu ability, with the choice of affinity to fire, ice, lightning or wind.
Another Yuffie ability is the use of Banishment, unleashing an attack that does more damage based on how much ATB is spent beforehand, so the more damage you deal the bigger the Banishment output. There is also the ability Windstorm, Yuffie can create a gust of wind that damages nearby enemies and launches them towards her.
Sonon will also fight alongside Yuffie, there are also other additional characters that will be introduced in Episode Intermission including Zhijie, a point of contact between the new Wutaian government and Avalanche HQ members. Members of Avalanche HQ include Nayo, Billy Bob, and Polk and Weiss, the ruler of Shinra’s top secret underground research center Deepground.
