Sony held a State of Play on February 25th, and it was a pretty interesting showcase despite the lack of heavy-hitters God of War and Horizon Forbidden West. One of the highlights was an overview of upcoming PS5 exclusive Returnal, but there was also the surprise announcement of Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade. Some people are asking if the Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade Yuffie DLC episode is coming to PS4, and here you’ll find everything that has been shared so far.
Aside from the arrival of everyone’s favourite ninja from the never-ending JRPG series as well as early Kingdom Hearts games, Square Enix also announced a free PS5 upgrade. You’ll still have to buy the game on PS5 if you don’t already own it, but last-gen owners of the game will get the upgrade for free when eventually making the transition to next-gen.
While the PS5 upgrade is fairly straightforward, some people are unsure about whether the Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade Yuffie episode is coming to PS4.
Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade PS5 upgrade
The Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade PS5 upgrade is coming out on June 10th.
Per the PlayStation Blog, the Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade PS5 upgrade will boast a Graphics Mode which prioritises high quality 4k visuals, meanwhile Performance Mode will focus on delivering 60 FPS gameplay.
The game will also include a photo mode which is sure to excite innocent photographers as well as the more mischievous, and you will be able to carry over your save data.
Square Enix clearly note that the PS5 upgrade is free for those who already own a PS4 copy, which is certainly neat and fair.
However, aside from visual, lighting, and frame rate improvements, yesterday’s biggest highlight was the introduction of everyone’s favourite ninja.
Is the Final Fantasy VII Remake Yuffie episode coming to PS4?
The Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade Yuffie episode and DLC is not coming to PS4.
This is because Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade is coming to PS5 only, meaning the Yuffie episode and DLC will not be on PS4 at all.
It’s disappointing that the much beloved ninja will not be on Sony last-gen consoles as it’s very difficult for people to make the jump to next-gen thanks to scalpers.
Seeing the Yuffie DLC on PS4 would’ve been nice to complete the Final Fantasy VII Remake experience on last-gen consoles, but – unfortunately – it’s not happening.
If you do own a PS5 or manage to get one before June 10th, know that you will need to buy the Yuffie episode despite the Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade upgrade being free.
This is because the Yuffie DLC is standalone, but no price has been mentioned as of yet. However, if you don’t already own the Final Fantasy VII Remake, you’ll be able to buy Intergrade with the Yuffie episode included for $69.99.
