Remake Intergrade

Square Enix has revealed a new trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, with new glimpses at its additional content. The trailer was shown at the tail end of a livestream event promoting mobile battle royale spinoff Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier

Check out the trailer below via the archived stream. It kicks off late into the broadcast, at about an hour and 44 minutes in.

Note: The Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade trailer begins with scenes and footage from late into the main story. This could be spoilers for players who haven’t finished it. Those who only want to see more of the new content should start at 1 hour, 45 minutes, 15 seconds. 

 
The trailer opens with a montage of scenes from the latter parts of Final Fantasy VII Remake. This includes fights against the Turks and various boss characters. This also marks an appearance from the previously-revealed katana-wielding Shinra Deepground member, Weiss. Footage from Remake Intergrade‘s new episode, officially titled “EPISODE INTERmission,” begins with Yuffie in her moogle hoodie distributing Wutai beans to Avalanche members. She’s invited to play a game of “Condor,” which transitions to footage of a Fort Condor strategy minigame.

Players control various combat units and rush them against each other in an attempt to beat the other side. It’s a toy-like recreation of the battle for Fort Condor, a location outside Midgar. Yuffie and Sonon’s interactions with Shinra executive Scarlet are also shown, including a battle against her in some new battle armor. Yuffie and Sonon then tangle with Nero, the brother of Weiss and an antagonist from PS2 release Dirge of Cerberus.

The Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade trailer ends with confirmation that players who own the PS4 version of Final Fantasy VII Remake would be able to upgrade to the PS5 version. This upgrade will cost JPY 100 (about USD $1). From there, Episode INTERmission is available as a DLC add-on for the newly-upgraded copy. Episode INTERmission will be the only DLC for Remake Intergrade, as the development team’s focus will shift fully to the next installment of Final Fantasy VII Remake once Intergrade development wraps.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade releases for the PlayStation 5 on June 10, 2021.
