Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade is still planned to release on PlayStation 5 this June and the previously titled Episode Yuffie is now officially called Episode INTERmission.
When playing as Yuffie, you’ll see she used her signature iconic throwing star in battle. As a member of Wutai’s elite corps of ninja operative, her Unique Ability gives her the ability to take on enemies. Yuffie can also use long-range ninjutsu that augments her Elemental Ninjutsu ability, which can change its affinity to fire, ice, lightning or wind.
“Before you stands a rare bloom: the single white rose of Wutai…the one-and-only Yuffie!”

One of Yuffie’s abilities is called Banishment and this attack unleashed damage based on how much ATB was spent before it. This ability also uses elemental affinity like her Elemental Ninjutsu.
Next, Yuffie’s second ability is called Windstorm and this one creates a damaging gust of wind that affects all enemies nearby, launching them towards her. While Square is keeping mum on more details, we now know a few tidbits about how she’ll play in battle, but confirmed there will be “multiple new combat and gameplay additions.”
In addition to learning more about the new episode, we also have a confirmed English voice cast including:
- Yuffie Kisaragi, voiced by Suzie Yeung
- Sonon Kusakabe, voiced by Aleks Le
- Weiss, voiced by Daman Mills
- Zhijie, voiced by Griffin Puatu
- Nayo, voiced by Ashley Boettcher
- Billy Bob, voiced by David Goldstein
- Polk, voiced by Daniel Amerman
Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade will be available beginning on June 10, 2021. Episode INTERmission will be available the same day but as a separate purchase.
