In just a few months, Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 7 Remake would hit its first anniversary. Alas, there’s still no word on when the sequel will be making an appearance, which is extremely annoying. And I believe Square Enix knows that fact all too well; thus, prompting them to give us something to look forward to in the meantime.
That’s right; Final Fantasy 7 Remake is making its way to PlayStation 5! While this is no surprise, given how most games are already making the transition, I am still shocked and glad that it’s arriving this fast.
The PS5 upgrade will be free to everyone who already owns it on the PS4. And it will include most of the conventional enchantments that comes with bringing a game to the new console.
Additionally, Square Enix will also be introducing a brand new difficulty that combines the normal mode with classical controls, along with the photo mode to take badass pictures at last!
Square Enix brings in Yuffie!
And what’s an upgrade without additional content, right?
Well, Square Enix is bringing in fan-favourite Yuffie to the Remake with her very own DLC story, Intergrade, that takes place in the background; before she ends up with the central group of characters. You’ll also be teaming with a new playable character called Sonon in the adventure.
However, there’s a catch.
Unfortunately, gamers will have to purchase the DLC separately after upgrading the base game to the PS5 version. It seems like the DLC will not be apart of the free upgrade…bummer, I know.
Then again, this new initiative gives me hope that perhaps Square Enix has plans for more DLCs that expand on other characters down the line. Namely, Zack Fair! Fingers crossed.
The free upgrade and Intergrade DLC will be making it’s way to gamers this year on June 10, so keep an eye out for it.
