Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade has included enough new features not to go unnoticed in the development of the second part of this reimagining of the original myth, it has recognized Naoki Yamaguchi, co-director of the game, in a meeting with The Washington Post. Following the commercial success of Square Enix’s work in 2020, Intergrade brought with it not only a technical facelift to take advantage of the PS5, but an additional episode, INTERmission, whose new mechanical contributions aim to be present in the second episode.
Specifically, joint movements where Yuffie Y Sonon temporarily join forces to free special attacks and combo abilities. A way to get along with the synergy between both characters and that “gives a different feeling in the combat strategy. I’d like to take advantage of it, including other items we tested at INTERmission, in our next story”Yamaguchi acknowledges.

Naoki Hamaguchi to be the solo director of Part 2.
