That is not all however, as Square Enix has confirmed that fans will also get a second look at Final Fantasy VII: Remake Intergrade, the PS5 release of FFVII Remake, which will also include ‘Episode INTERmission’ – focused on the character Yuffie Kisaragi.
The initial reveal of Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier sparked some confusion from fans of the series, with many fearing that this mobile-focused free-to-play experience may be little more than a cash-grab to jump in on the soon-to-be-saturated battle royale genre. Hopefully this upcoming showcase will provide greater insight into the game, justifying its existence and explaining why it should stand as part of the Final Fantasy VII series.
