Square Enix has released a number of new screenshots and details for Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade. Much of it is focused on Episode INTERmission, Yuffie’s episode which sees her and Sonon sneaking into Shinra to steal some powerful Materia. This includes details on Nero, Weiss the Immaculate’s younger brother who has the power to control darkness.
Residing within the Deepground and part of the Tsviets unit, Nero isn’t the only threat the players will face. There’s Scarlet (who created the Materia that Yuffie and Sonon are after) with her scarlet Mare to contend with as well. Fortunately, the heroic duo will have a number of techniques to make things easier. By pressing L2, Yuffie and Sonon can unleash Synergized Attacks like Synergized Art of War, which damages an enemy and allows subsequent hits to deal more damage; Synergized Windstorm that can launch enemies towards you; and more.
Both also have Limit Breaks like Yuffie’s Bloodbath and Sonon’s Dance of the Dragoon. There’s also Fort Condor, the strategy game based on the original Final Fantasy 7’s tower defense-style mission. It sees two players fielding units to conquer the other’s base while defending their own. Based on the board selected, the number of ATB charges, available Materia and units will change. ATB is used to deploy units with each having one of three roles – Vanguard, Defense and Ranged. Depending on their role, they’ll be effective against a different enemy type.
Finally, there’s Ramuh, the Lord of Levin who utilizes lightning to destroy enemies. As a new summon, he’s capable of using Voltaic Lance to damage nearby foes for a brief time and Judgment Bolt to deliver a huge thunderstorm to all enemies. When Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade releases, players can download a free item pack containing three summons – Carbuncle, Chocobo and Cactuar – along with three armor pieces – Midgar Bangle, Shinra Bangle and Corneo’s Armelt. There’s also accessories like the Superstar Belt and Mako Crystal that should provide an initial early edge in combat.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade is out on June 10th, exclusively for PS5.
