Square Enix has revealed new details regarding the upcoming Yuffie episode in Final Fantasy VII Remake - Intergrade on PS5. Officially named "Episode INTERmission", the new segment will focus on Wutaians Yuffie and Sonon as they lead a mission into Midgar.
What can we expect from the Final Fantasy VII Remake - Intergrade Yuffie episode?
Episode INTERmission takes place shortly after the destruction of Midgar's Mako Reactor 5. Do note that we won't be spoiling any major story elements of Final Fantasy VII Remake here, but if you don't want to know anything, you may wish to avoid this info. Wutai senses an opportunity for subterfuge and sends operatives Yuffie Kisaragi and Sonon Kusakabe into Midgar to steal a powerful materia from Shinra. Naturally, things don't go quite according to plan, and Yuffie must deal with a much, much bigger situation than she'd ever anticipated.
Along with these plot details, Square Enix also released a look at some of the supporting cast. Yuffie will interact with characters like Wutaian spy Zhijie, Avalanche HQ members Nayo, Billy Bob, and Polk, and Shinra research center leader Weiss, among others. The cast of the episode is shaping up to be an interesting one, and we can't wait to meet Weiss in particular; he looks like a fun loose cannon.
