Get to know Yuffie Kisaragi in FF7R Episode INTERmission
As Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade’s release draws near on June 10th, 2021, details on the newest playable character Yuffie Kisaragi have been revealed.
To learn more about Yuffie’s role in the new Episode INTERmission content, here are some details on her character’s connection to Intergrade’s story and her unique gameplay.
Who is Yuffie?
Yuffie introduces herself as a Materia hunter and an elite special forces operative from the new Wutai government. She ventures into and explores the city of Midgar with the purpose of infiltrating the Shinra Electric Power Company’s headquarters to steal the ‘ultimate’ Materia.
Yuffie is described as mischievous and cocky. She also fashions herself as a stunning beauty and one of the greatest Materia hunters in the world. This spunky ninja girl from Wutai, however, does have the skills and style to back her personality. Her combat skills and agility and worth noting as well. Yuffie uses a massive Shuriken in battle which she can throw to reach items from a distance, something that Cloud or any other playable character is incapable of.
Released official footage on her skills in combat further elaborate on her unique playstyle with her favored weapon, the Shuriken. Yuffie can fight in both close-quarters and at long-range thanks to her versatile weapon.
Tapping the Square button lets Yuffie release a series of rapid attacks using her Shuriken onto enemies.
Holding the Square button, meanwhile, allows her to create some distance from foes while dealing damage as well.
Yuffie can also hurl her shuriken from afar at her target by tapping the Triangle button. Pressing the Square button while her Shuriken is away lets Yuffie launches long-range ninjutsu attacks. If you want the Shuriken back after throwing it, you can just press the Triangle button again.
The attacks described above only deal physical or non-elemental damage to enemies. However, you can unlock the Elemental Ninjutsu abilities to grant Yuffie access to fire, ice, wind, or lightning attacks.
Banishment is a ninjutsu attack that Yuffie can cast which can be powered up active time battle (ATB) charges used in other commands. The ninjutsu can be leveled up to three stages to deal greater damage to the foes.
Windstorm is one of Yuffie’s most powerful skills which creates a blast of wind that launces opponents towards you while damaging enemies in the process.
