In an interview with the director of Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade – IntermissionThe developer, Tetsuya Nomura, addressed the decision to include Yuffie in the downloadable episode of the game for PS5. Why not use Cid or Vincent? In additi on to its location in the story arc that covers the game, because Yuffie could move freely.
«The story follows the original, so considering where they are located in it, Vincent is in his deep sleep and Cid is on Shinra’s side. So Yuffie was the only one who could move freely. ”
Yuffie can be added to the team in the original FFVII early. Upon reaching Junon for the first time and wandering the nearby forests, eventually the mysterious ninja enters battle. Once defeated and the correct answers answered, Yuffie joins the resistance.
Yuffie’s appearance in Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade -Episode Intermission- is inspired by Dirge of Cerberus. The original design was created by Nomura and explains that the ‘shuriken’ was added because before FFVII, it was an especially powerful weapon compared to the ninja weapons in the series.
It was essential to keep iconic Yuffie items like her shorts.
“I would say that I am more demanding about whether or not he looked his age. Yuffie is younger than the other main members, as she is still a teenager.
While Cloud and company have youthful faces too, he wanted Yuffie to look younger and not fully adult. So in comparison, Cloud and the rest look more mature. “
Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade will be available from June 10
