Given that Square Enix is releasing the fully updated Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade for PlayStation 5 this summer, we assumed that this would be the case, but now we have some form of confirmation: there probably won’t be any additional Remake DLC following Episode Yuffie. This is according to director Tetsuya Nomura, who’s been popping up in all kinds of interviews recently.
Speaking to Famitsu, Nomura says: “Due to the [Intergrade] upgrade, it became necessary to separate Episode Yuffie as DLC. However, the original purpose was to make the PS5 version of Final Fantasy VII Remake, not to make DLC. Therefore, there are no [additional] plans for DLC at this time.”
Again, this comes as no real surprise. Square Enix had been pretty much silent on Final Fantasy VII Remake since its release in April 2020, until it announced Intergrade just a few weeks ago. Nomura goes on to say that through focusing on the PS5 version of Remake, rather than more DLC, development of Remake Part 2 — or whatever it ends up being called — should be smooth sailing. Let’s hope that’s the case!
