Square Enix has announced the Yuffie PS5-exclusive DLC for Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade is called Episode Intermission.
Alongside the title, new information on gameplay elements featuring Yuffie in Final Fantasy 7 Remake Episode Intermission was provided. The episode’s main character, Yuffie Kisaragi, was also detailed.
In the episode, Yuffie will be infiltrating the Shinra Corporation to steal a powerful materia and "restore glory to her homeland." The character makes use of both close and long-range combat, and a member of Wutai's elite corps of ninja operatives, her Unique Ability allows her to throw a rather large 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 her Unique Ability, its elemental affinity can be changed with Elemental Ninjutsu.
The character can also use Windstorm, which creates gusts of wind that damages nearby enemies and lanches them toward her.
Alongside Yuffie and Sonon, additional characters were introduced for Episode Intermission including Zhijie, a Wutain is a point of contact between the new Wutaian government and Avalanche HQ, members of Avalanche HQ—Nayo, Billy Bob, and Polk, and Weiss, the ruler of Shinra’s top-secret underground research center Deepground.
