Final Fantasy VII Remake is a dramatic game with the weird stupid beats. The new DLC episode with the young Wutai ninja Yuffie Kisaragi is a silly side quest that stays light to the bitter end. That’s the perfect thing FFVII Remake Intergrade hunter.
What’s there? FFVII Remake Intergrade?
IN FF7R Episode INTERmission, as Square Enix calls it, 16-year-old ninja prodigy Yuffie Kisaragi and her partner / subordinate Sonon Kusakabe infiltrate Midgar on a mission to steal a rumored “ultimate matter” for their nation, Wutai. Although the couple works with the eco-terrorist rebel group Avalanche during the mission, they rightly do not work with the Avalanche “splinter cell” Barrett, Tifa and Cloud belong to. Early in the DLC mission, Yuffie is warned against trying to interact with the game’s main characters. And should you try to storm Tifa Lockhart’s Seventh Heaven bar, the group’s secret headquarters, Yuffie will be physically pushed away by invisible forces.
In the original Final Fantasy VII, Yuffie is an optional character who does not meet the main party until they have left Midgar, so meeting the team in advance will ruin the continuity that the recovery is trying to establish. As such, Yuffie and Sonon spend their short time in the city doing their own thing while the dramatic events surrounding Cloud and friends occur in their periphery.
When you are not fighting against others Fort Condor players in DLC’s colorful tower defense mini-game or to participate in a handful of side quests, Yuffie’s main quest is short and sweet. First, she and Sonon must obtain a pair of fake IDs to get to Shinra HQ. To do this, they must chase the contact through the Sector 7 industrial area, and fight against the Shinra forces that pursue him along the way. From there it goes on to the Shinra HQ itself, where several famous faces from a few different Final Fantasy VII games make ninjas’ lives miserable.
For a character that can only be played for three and a half hours (not including mini-games and side quests), Yuffie is a pretty well-rounded fighter. By using her massive ninja stars, she can fight enemies up close with physical attacks, or she can cast the star and cast ninja magic from a long distance. Her companion, Sonon, is not playable, but they connect and synergize when they are in battle together, performing more powerful team-up versions of Yuffie’s normal ninja magic. Both warriors are ridiculously fast, and when a new summons comes into action, enemies may just as well forget to see their families again.
However, Yuffie’s strongest force is not her magic or her ninja abilities: it is her positive character, her can-do attitude and her clumsy, impish charm that see her through her Midgar mission. I will cheer as she dramatically confronts Shinra soldiers near the mainstay holding up Sector 7, reciting an obviously practiced speech meant to strike fear into the hearts of her enemies, even though I know she’s about to fall on her ass .
The role-playing game of DLC, which both come back from the real remake and the new ninja, gives these silly performances everything. Suzie Yeung is irresistibly charming as Yuffie, the teenage ninja with unwavering loyalty to her clan and a hatred of the planet-poisoning Shinra. Aleks Le’s Sonon engages in her younger commander’s pranks with grace and readiness, and never lets on that the silly things she does are anything but brilliant theaters designed to distract enemies. They make up a fantastic team.
The other star team for this downloadable content is the Square Enix music team, which has surpassed itself with some of the new tracks introduced for this small content. There are at least three original songs for a page search involving a bar called The Happy Turtle, separately. One is an optimistic ring. Another is a light pop song. The third is basically death metal. “Get out, get out, get out, get out of your shell / Party, party, party, party, all night, on Happy Turtle.” It never comes out of my head. Dammit, I just found another one.
“You and I are nice and light, on our journey / our lives will be so good, on Happy Turtle.” It’s beautiful.
Not everything about the Yuffie DLC mission is light and airy. There are some heavy bits towards the end that I will refrain from mentioning, as well as a bit of an extended epilogue to the main game. What I’m saying is that there are more reasons to play through the new episode than merry fun. It’s just that hilarious fun is a very big part of it.
It’s great to see Yuffie get some time in the spotlight. With this DLC Square Enix has lifted her from optional side character that was almost cut from the original game to an important part of Final Fantasy VII Remake saga. I look forward to seeing more of her whenever that happens.
