The Japanese website 4Gamer has released some new details (translated by RPG Site) and screenshots for Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade. Of course, the focus is on Yuffie Kisaragi. The upcoming “Intergrade” version of Final Fantasy VII Remake will not only offer numerous technical improvements on PlayStation 5, but also new content with all of our favorite ninja. The new pictures should also show you the optical improvements, for example in terms of exposure, fog effects and textures.
We are now also given a character description for Yuffie. She is voiced by Yumi Kakazu and is a member of Wutai’s shinobi group. She has numerous (self-awarded) titles such as “Pretty Girl Ninja” or “Skilled Materia Hunter”. Yuffie loves to play with her enemies, moves nimbly and uses her shuriken in battle. She masters close combat as well as long-range combat. She is currently working to save her hometown, which lost its liveliness after the war against Shinra. She therefore infiltrates Midgar on the secret orders of the Wutai interim government.
Yuffie is supported by Sonon Kusakabe, dubbed in Japanese by Yoshimasa Hosoya. He is a warrior from Wutai and studied the martial arts Kenpo and Bojutsu with Yuffie’s father Godo. After participating in the war at a young age, he grew up hating Shinra. He accompanies his younger supervisor Yuffie during the infiltration. He tends to be reckless.
Check out the new pictures below.
