The game’s ‘final trailer’, published today, ends with a statement that the upcoming remaster will be a “PlayStation 5 console exclusive”.
The statement has an asterisk, however, which is accompanied with small print that reads: “Available on PS5 at least six months earlier than any other format.”
The new trailer shows the graphical improvements made for the PlayStation 5, and also shows some of the new content from FF7R Episode INTERmission, a new sub-story that stars ninja character Yuffie. It also gives a look at Fort Condor, a new tactical mini-game that’s part of INTERmission.
The trailer was showcased as part of a Final Fantasy VII live broadcast held in Japan. According to Famitsu, the broadcast also included a brief update on Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2.
Director Tetsuya Nomura said development was going smoothly, and confirmed that the game would take place right after the events of Intergrade, and would have a “different atmosphere” to Part 1.
Priced at $69.99/£69.99 and set for release on June 10, Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade is a PS5 update of last year’s RPG featuring improved visuals, faster loading times, a Photo Mode and haptic feedback as well as the new Yuffie DLC story.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake PS4 owners will be able to upgrade to the PS5 game for free and transfer saves from the last-gen version, though this offer isn’t available to owners of March’s PS Plus version of the title.
And the free upgrade won’t include INTERmission, which will also be available for PS5 as a standalone $19.99 purchase from the PlayStation Store.
