Sony ended their recent State of Play stream with an announcement from Square Enix. Final Fantasy 7 Remake is coming to PlayStation 5 as Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade on June 10, alongside new DLC.
The new episode stars ninja Yuffie Kisaragi, one of the main party members from the original Final Fantasy 7. In this adventure she has her own mission to infiltrate Shinra and steal a rare materia for her homeland, set before the events that cross paths with our main story. The standalone episode features new combat and characters, and only available as paid DLC for the PlayStation 5 Intergrade version of Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
If you already own Final Fantasy 7 Remake on PlayStation 4, you can upgrade to Intergrade for free on PlayStation 5. Intergrade includes enhanced gameplay and graphics, including a Graphics Mode for 4K resolution and Performance Mode to prioritize 60 frames per second.
Intergrade will also take advantage of the PlayStation 5’s faster load times and haptic feedback controller, as well as a new customizable photo mode.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade is coming in both physical and digital editions, as well as a Digital Deluxe Edition that includes a digital soundtrack and digital artbook. Pre-orders will receive the Cacstar weapon in the new Yuffie episode.
Square Enix also announced two new mobile spin-offs games based on Final Fantasy 7. Final Fantasy 7 First Soldier is a Battle Royale multiplayer game set before the events of the RPG, as players use weapons and abilities to survive. Final Fantasy 7 Ever Crisis is a single-player re-imagining of the original game (and its spin-offs), which appears to combine old-school adventuring with modernized combat.
First Soldier is coming later this year, while Ever Crisis is due out in 2022. Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade will launch on June 10 on PlayStation 5. It’s rated T for Teen.
