    While some of the improvements may not seem noticeable, the ones that are, are great. Saves from the PS4 can be saved and imported into this new version using in-game options, so you can carry over your progress and trophies if you decide to jump back into the game. Coupled with the new INTERmission DLC, fans get to live in the city of Midgar for another four hours or so and play with another character as we eagerly await news on when we can experience the rest of Remake’s story in future releases.

    Intermission is an excellent expansion for the world of Final Fantasy 7 Remake, introducing Yuffie Kisaragi and expanding upon her character and history in ways that simply weren’t possible in the 1997 original. She absolutely steals the show here, bolstered up by a selection of compelling newcomers and a continuation of the main narrative that teases a tantalisingly exciting future for this ambitious project. I’m unsure when we will next see something from Final Fantasy 7 Remake, but if it’s anything like this - we’re in for a treat.

    Ultimately, Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade offers a fun and enjoyable new adventure with new characters and new game modes that improve performance and graphics. While nothing new is added to the base game, the new modes will certainly make either replaying the game or starting it for the first time worthwhile. The DLC adds more to the story for new and old fans to enjoy. The upgraded version and DLC will certainly leave fans excited for what’s to come in future games.

    As far as Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade INTERmission goes as a whole, I'm really glad it exists. To be frank I wouldn't mind seeing another one of these, say for Vincent, at some point.

    Wrapping up my time with Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade and Episode Intermission, a few things are abundantly clear. Square Enix knows how to expertly overproportionate things and they know their fans. They’ve absolutely honed in on the combat to make it the best yet. Also, I can only imagine how gorgeous Midgar in a new light must feel to longtime fans. However, it at times dips a little into being greedy with your time when you consider the side activities on offer. Final Fantasy VII Remake and its DLC carry the feeling of majesty throughout. Yes, it’s at times arguably unnecessary. Yes, it’s ridiculous that this even exists. Still, I can’t wait to be along for every turn of the future Final Fantasy VII ride. Bumps and all.

    Although Episode INTERmission doesn’t build much on Final Fantasy VII Remake‘s story, instead being mostly its own diversion, it’s an excellent excuse to revisit Midgar. Not that we need an excuse when it looks as fantastic as this. Yuffie makes an excellent protagonist; her combat is fast-paced and dynamic, and her straight-faced sidekick Sonon is the ideal antidote to her loveable but in-your-face personality. It may only be short, but there are plenty of side activities to keep you busy. Essentially, if you have Final Fantasy VII Remake and a PS5, then this DLC is not to be missed.

    In the end, Intermission is a pit stop, a quick jaunt into the gas station minimart of Final Fantasy VII to refuel, grab a snack, and get ready to wait some more. With its fun combat and quirky character moments, it'll likely remind you of what you like about FF7 Remake--but it won't be enough to hold you over.

On top of that, Yuffie's character is now my favorite in the remake. Her combat style is one of, if not, the BEST in the game. I suggest that when you play the Intermission chapters for the first time, do not speedrun it. Do the side quests as it will make you more attached to the protagonist.

    Sonon, a new character, is also likeable. I think the game gave him a good enough back story (considering this is only two chapters) and his involvement in the game may drive Yuffie's character development as the remake goes on. These two characters together are very human in nature. A teenager trying to act more mature than her age, like all other teenagers, and a companion with genuine intentions and support for our lovable protagonist.

    WATCH OUT FOR THE TEASER AT THE END. What's next for Team Cloud? How will the story go now that we are introduced to new story points?

Quitando sus principales problemas como su duración (me ha durado 5 horas a ritmo normal, una duración algo escasa para costar 20 euros) o su historia, que aunque era un arco interesante me ha parecido un tanto simple y poco profunda; este DLC trae a una nueva personaje jugable (Yuffie), cuyos movimientos en combate y mecánicas han convertido la han convertido, a mi gusto, en el mejor personaje en cuanto a jugabilidad, siendo divertido, ágil y satisfactorio controlarla. Los gráficos son igual de buenos que el juego original, en cuanto a música se añaden nuevas y excelentes piezas, y en cuanto a los personajes que aparecen Yuffie me ha parecido buenísima y Sonon un tanto plano y genérico. La narrativa del DLC sucede en paralelo al juego principal, por lo que recomiendo haberlo jugado primero antes de jugar al DLC. En definitiva, está expansión trae una nueva historia al mundo de Final Fantasy, siendo esta muy entretenida y recomendable. 8,4/10 Expand
