The recently released Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade video game for the PlayStation 5 did not only include new graphics but also included completely new content. A chapter featured the classic Final Fantasy VII character Yuffie, who is often referred to as Intermission. So, a new character in the DLC chapter was able to perform unique combo moves alongside Yuffie. This content was not included in the base Final Fantasy VII REmake. Naoki Hamaguchi (Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade) said that this could be a feature that will eventually appear in Part 2 of Final Fantasy VII Remake.
Hamaguchi said that he was satisfied with the final form in which the command-based element of battle coexists with the action-oriented battle in real-time. This was in a recent interview with The Washington Post. “In Intermission there is another element: the combination moves in which Yuffie or Sonon work together… this creates a new feel for battle strategy. These elements, along with other elements, I’d like to use in our next story.
This is not the only aspect of the new Intermissioncontent. Motomu Toriyama is the Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade director. He says that the Yuffie DLC will take cues to form how it handles the introduction of Weiss (and Nero) characters who were first introduced in Dirge of Cerberus, a PlayStation 2 spinoff. Toriyama claims that new characters not previously introduced in Final Fantasy VII will have a similar introduction. It will be framed as Cloud’s first encounter.
Toriyama stated that for unfamiliar enemies such as Nero or Weiss, it is enough to be able to convey that they are dark and mysterious. “Also, familiar people can feel a stronger connection with the overarching world of Final Fantasy VII by having them appear in the narrative as they are in their source material.
