Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade is coming to PS5 on June 10. It includes an upgraded version of the original game, plus a new episode featuring Yuffie. The PlayStation 5 game is now available for preorder (see it on Amazon), but the rollout is bit complicated. It comes in a few different editions, and owners of the PS4 version get some stuff for free. Let’s dig into the details.
Preorder Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade
If you want to preorder the full PS5 game, it’s now available at all the usual retailers. And yes, it’s priced it like a standard PS5 game. This comes with the base game, PS5 upgrade, and the Yuffie episode all in one package.
Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade Deluxe Edition
The game is also available in a digital-only deluxe edition. It includes everything in the standard version (game, PS5 upgrade, and Yuffie episode), plus a digital art book and a digital mini-soundtrack.
What if You Already Own Final Fantasy VII Remake on PS4?
With one exception, anyone who already owns Final Fantasy VII Remake for PS4 can download the PS5 upgrade for free starting June 10. (The PS4 version is on sale for $39.99 at Amazon right now). You will, however, have to pay extra for the Yuffie episode, if you’re interested in that.
The one big exception is this: the PS5 upgrade is not available for people who got their copy of Final Fantasy VII Remake for free when it was available in March 2021 for PS Plus members. If that’s how you got your copy, the PS5 upgrade will not be available to you unless you buy a separate copy of the game.
Final Fantasy VII Remake PS5 Upgrade Details
The PS5 upgrade includes enhanced visuals, a photo mode, and haptic feedback through the DualSense controller. It also includes the option to switch between “Graphics Mode” that prioritizes 4K visuals and “Performance Mode” that prioritizes 60 frames per second. You’ll also be able to carry over your save file from the PS4 version to the PS5 version.
What is the Yuffie Episode?
The Yuffie episode puts you in the shoes of the Wutai ninja Yuffie Kisaragi. She, along with other new characters, is on a mission to infiltrate Midgar and steal “the ultimate materia” from the Shinra Electric Power Company. The episode also includes “new combat and gameplay additions.”
Note: The Yuffie episode is only available in the PS5 version of the game.
