Square Enix have revealed more information for the Yuffie campaign in Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, along with the English voice cast.
As stated in the press release (via email), Yuffie’s episode is dubbed “EPISODE INTERmission,” where Yuffie will user her elite ninja corps skills to infiltrate Shinra and steal a powerful materia to restore the glory of Wutai.
In battle, she combines long and close range combat, with her Uinique Ability letting her throw her massive throwing star at foes. While using her Unique Ability, she can also use long-range ninjutsu to augment her Elemental Ninjutsu with fire, ice, lightning, or wind.
Yuffie’s other new skills include Banishment, which deals more damage based on how much of the ATB gauge was spent before it was used. This can also be charged with Elemental Ninjutsu. Windstorm lets her unleash a gale that damages and launches foes towards her.
Alongside the previously revealed Sonon, other characters featured in INTERmission include Zhijie. He hails from Wutai, and acts as a point of contact for the new Wutai government and Avalanche HQ. Among the HQ’s members are Nayo, Billy Bob, and Polk.
Another person Zhijie in contact with is a surprising one. Weiss of Shinra’s top-secret underground research center Deepground. He appeared in Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-, and Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII-. While still in command of Deepground for the remake, he has also kept his sadistic traits.
