“Final Fantasy 7 Remastered Edition Intergrade” (hereinafter referred to as FF7RI) is an exclusive version of PS5. The content is the same as the PS4 version, but the screen performance has been greatly enhanced. One of the major features is that the work provides two play modes: one for keeping. “Performance” at 1080 resolution at 60 fps, and “Image” at 4K resolution at 30 fps. The former is a great boon for those who love to play action or shooting games, especially in the face of hard (Hard) high-speed battles, 60 fps allows players to see the enemy’s movements more clearly in order to make countermeasures. The latter “image mode” is useful for players who like to travel around the world of “FF7”. With the in-game “photo mode”, you can easily take a variety of moving photos.
PS5’s “FF7RI” not only contains the PS4 version of “FF7R” story, but also added a new chapter “INTERmission”, allowing players to experience the strength of another character “Yuffie” in the “FF7” chapter. In the original PS version, Yuffi will only join Cloud’s team in the middle of the story, and this time the “INTERmission” content is a completely new creation. In addition to Yuffi, another character “Sonon” will also join the team to assist in the battle. Although he can’t directly control it, he is good at close combat and therefore works very well with Yuffi’s long-range high-speed attacks. In addition to attacking methods, Sonnon also possesses the “true” provocative skills that attract the enemy to focus on himself, as well as the ability to team up with Yuffi so that he can also use attributes such as ninjutsu.
Attention! The interaction between the PS4 version and the PS5 version
“Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade” is an exclusive version of PS5, the content is the same as the PS4 version, but the screen performance has been greatly enhanced. In addition, the PS5 version sold separately, its content has been accompanied by the latest DLC extra chapter “FF7R EPISODE INTERmission” (Yu Fei’s new chapter).
For players who have purchased the PS4 version of “FF7R”, whether it is the disc version or the download version, you can also download the PS5 version of “FF7RI” “for free” in the PS5 store. However, if you want to play “Yuphy’s New Chapter”, you will have to pay another fee.
Players who obtained “FF7R” through PS PLUS in March of this year cannot download it for free and must pay for the PS5 version again.
If you want to use the PS4 version of the archive in the PS5 version, you must first update “FF7R” on the PS4 to the latest version, and upload the archive to your own PSN cloud archive (this feature can also be used by all users, without PS PLUS), Then in the PS5 “FF7RI” game, choose to download the cloud archive.
Yu Fei is a Materia hunter from Wutai. He is good at ninjutsu. His weapon is a large shuriken. He is also the daughter of Godo, the lord of Wutai. In the original PS version, it is a hidden teammate, and players need to complete certain conditions to recruit her into the team. In order to steal Shinra’s “Super Magic Spar” in this game, Yu Fei successfully sneaked into the slums of District 7 and formed a two-person team with Sonong who belonged to Wutai. Yuffi will wear Moogle’s costume at the beginning, and will take off in the middle of the chapter and reveal the green ninja costume.
Way of fighting
Yu Fei is good at high-speed combat, mainly using “throwing shurikens” for long-range attacks, and then using “recycling” to instantly shorten the distance with the enemy. Since throwing and retrieving can be cast without stopping and regardless of height difference, it is not difficult to deal with aerial warfare. If you press the basic attack button after throwing a shuriken, all moves will become a long-range “attribute ninjutsu”. Although the attack power is not as good as true high-level magic, in small battles or when you want to equip other magic spars, This design is also very convenient.
In addition, if Yu Fei successfully presses R1 to defend before the enemy attacks, this can greatly reduce the opponent’s damage. To put it simply, because this DLC only has a two-person team and can only operate the relationship of Yu Fei moving, Yu Fei has become a very powerful “universal character”.
He comes from Wutai as well as Yuffi, and is also a disciple of the city lord Guotuo, but since he joined the special attack team a little later than Yuffi, he would call Yuffi, younger than him, the “senior.” There is a period between Sonong and Shinra, and this episode of hatred will be described in the second chapter of the DLC.
Way of fighting
Players can’t directly operate Sonon, but they can still give him various commands. His default action is probably to attack meleely, attract enemies, and then defend at the appropriate time. It is a kind of “pre-tank” role. After getting the designated weapon, he can also use special skills to attract enemies, which is more practical than the “provocation” of the magic spar. In addition, he has two special abilities at the beginning. One of them is that when Yuffi’s blood volume becomes low, Sonia will automatically use her healing skills; the other is that if Yuffi is unfortunately killed, he will Sacrifice yourself to resurrect Yufi (Sonon was killed in disguise).
In addition, the game has also added a new system “Joint Hands”. Players can start by pressing L2. At this time, Yuffi and Sonon’s attack methods and targets will be the same. If Yuffi uses ninjutsu, Sonon will follow along. Use; in addition, moves such as “Fenglin Volcano” will become an enhanced version of “Joint Hands. Fenglin Volcano”. Although the power of the teamwork is high, Sonon’s ATB recovery speed will become extremely low, so it should not be used for a long time.
“INTERmission” belongs to an independent DLC chapter and is not connected to this chapter. All props are calculated independently, even if they are archived, they are stored separately. There are two chapters in “INTERmission”, which provide a total of about 7-10 hours of gaming experience. After completion, not only will the difficulty of “HARD” and “CHAPTER SELECT” be opened for players to challenge again, but also new hidden bosses will be opened. Players can go back to the HARD difficulty in Chapter 17 of this chapter, find the “Shinra Battle Simulator” in the Shinra Building, and challenge the new boss with the original team.
In addition to the new story and the new boss, after completing this DLC, players will also see an additional new ending of “FF7R”, the content is a little mention of the whereabouts of Gurant and his party.
The new mini game Happy Turtle
“Turtle” is actually asking players to find six “pamphlets” in the slums. After collecting them, go back to “Uncle Turtle” to get the rare magic spar “scope”. The six flyers are all on the map of “District Seven Slums” in Chapter 1, and you can find them by searching them thoroughly. And once the player gets close to the target flyer, the game will play a special “turtle music” tune.
Note that some of the flyers are hidden in areas with strong monsters. It is recommended to look for them after Euphy and Sonnon meet.
After collecting them, you can get: “Scoped” magic spar.
New mini game Fort Condor
The mini-games that appeared on the original PS version will be remade when they come to the PS5 version: the new gameplay is the same as some of the current hot board battle games. Both parties must place their own chess pieces on a board, and they will face the enemy on their own. The square base advances and attacks enemy units on the road. Each player has three bases, and if the middle base is destroyed, it will be considered a loss.
The game strategy is mainly about the choice of pawns and board before the start, and which pawns should be placed when and so on. Chess pieces have three attributes and mutually restrain each other.
Yuffi can challenge your opponents from level 1 in the slum, and among them, he will fight against popular characters such as Jessie and others until he reaches level 4 and succeeds in the challenge. Every time you win a game, you can get new pieces from the opponent’s hand, and you can also buy them from Uncle Turtle. Some special pieces will be found in the treasure chest.
After a complete victory, you can get: “Amplify AP” magic spar.
Chadley VR mission
Similar to the gameplay of “FF7R”, players can talk to Chadley in the slums and challenge the new summoned beast “Ram” that only appears in this DLC. : FF7)” appeared in).
All attacks have thunder attributes. You can consider equipping “resistance” and “thunder” to reduce damage, but Yuffi’s “Iron Wall” defense is quite sufficient, especially when it blocks Rahm’s weak current attacks, it can be restored. Its own ATB speeds up its moves in disguise. Although Ram knows teleportation, he can use Yufi’s “Shuriken” and “Shuriken Absorption” to close the distance. When he gets close, he can join forces with Sonong to increase his damage.
After victory, you can obtain: “Rahm” summons magic spar.
Shinra Box Destruction King
The gameplay is the same as the main story of “FF7R”, which is to break the most wooden boxes within the time limit to achieve the highest score. Each wooden box is written with a score that can be obtained, which are 100, 200, and 1500, and its firmness is proportional to the score. The 1500-point wooden box is the strongest.
Important: Adjust the difficulty of the game to “EASY” before proceeding. It is recommended to equip “Windmill Dart” in Shinra Warrior Mode.
100-point wooden box: Destroy it with “Shuriken” + “Recover”.
200 points wooden box: use “shuriken” + “attack” (to become a small area magic) to destroy, or “shuriken” + “recovery” twice.
1500 points wooden box: After using the “shuriken”, use the “tornado” while the weapon is still rotating in the wooden box, and add a basic attack to break it, or “shuriken” + “recovery” six times each.
The other point is probably to understand the fastest way to break each wooden box, and then thoroughly implement it. In addition, in areas with dense wooden boxes, consider using a “cyclone” to break multiple wooden boxes in one go. In the Shinra Warrior Mode, there is a large number of 1500-point wooden boxes gathered in the last area. At this time, you can use the “Windmill Dart” with the level 3 “Evil Ghost Retreat” to destroy them in one breath.
Victory in general soldier mode can earn: 5000 points (“ATB Link” magic spar), 15000 points (“ATB boost” magic spar), 20000 points (“ATB boost” magic spar)
Win in the Shinra Warrior Mode: 10,000 points (“scoped” magic spar), 30000 points (“increased GIL” magic spar), 50,000 points (“increased experience value” magic spar)

Players will meet Nero in the level strategy, and they must be defeated to pass the level. After the DLC is completely broken, the player will be able to return to Chapter 17 of this story in “FF7RI”.
