A little while ago, Square Enix announced a new, enhanced version of Final Fantasy VII Remake would be coming to the PS5. This new version, Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergade (ugh…) would feature a suite of visual enhancements, new features and a new side story featuring Yuffie. Well, today fans can see it all in action thanks to the game’s most recent trailer.
Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade (seriously, what’s up with these annoyingly long titles?!) will have an improved overall framerate of 60fps, enhanced resolution, better textures and new lighting/fog effects. New “performance” and “visuals” modes will enable players to choose which thing the game favors while running: FPS or high-definition. There’s also a photo mode with all the usual trimmings, a new “Normal (Classic)” mode for people who want to play it old-school without giving up all challenge. Oh yeah, and Yuffie is still in there somewhere too, I guess.
This is going to be available as a free upgrade on the PS5 for anyone who purchased the original PS4 version. I do mean “purchased” too; those who download the game for free via PS Plus will not be able to get the upgrade for free. It’s a little annoying I suppose, but that’s how these services work I guess. The new version is out June 10th, so you’ve got time to decide if you really want it or not.
What do you think of this newly-upgraded game? Think you’ll check it out right away or do think this more of a “wait for the sale” kind of situation?
