Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade Gets New Intermission Screenshots, Info
Square Enix provided some new screenshots for the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade. The images come with some new details about battles and the new Fort Condor mini-game present in the additional Intermission chapter starring Yuffie Kisaragi.
In addition to the previously revealed characters, Intermission will include Nero, a member of the Tsviets elite group within Shinra’s secret Deepground military section. Voiced by Sean Chiplock, Nero is the younger brother of Deepground’s overseer Weiss and has the power to control darkness. Yuffie and Sonon will also encounter Scarlet and her battle armour, the Crimson Mare, on their mission to steal a special materia.
During Intermission, players will only be able to directly control Yuffie, but they can give commands to Sonon. In addition, when both characters have enough ATB gauge available, players can activate synergized attacks that can easily stagger enemies. Yuffie and Sonon also have their own Limit Breaks: Yuffie’s Bloodbath and Sonon’s Dance of the Dragon both unleash multiple attacks on enemies, dealing large amounts of damage. Ramuh also appears as a new summon.
Fort Condor is a new mini-game that Yuffie can partake in. Based on one of Shinra’s military campaigns, it’s a timed strategy game where two players deploy units to conquer their opponent’s base. Prior to the game, players select a board and their units. The board determines the number of ATB charges and available materia. By spending ATB charges, players can place down a unit, which heads toward the opponent’s base and attacks any enemies it comes across. There are three types of units — vanguard, ranged, and defense — with a triangle effectiveness system between them. Players can also use their materia to cast powerful spells, but each can only be used once.
Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade will launch for PlayStation 5 on June 10, 2021. Those who own the PlayStation 4 version will be able to upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version for free, but will have to purchase the additional story chapter separately. Players will be able to transfer their save data from the PlayStation 4 to the PlayStation 5 following a forthcoming update for the game.
