Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade was announced during the Feb. 25 edition of Sony State of Play at the end of the show as the marquee announcement.
Final Fantasy VII Remake was one of the most popular 2020 releases on the PlayStation 4 as the console's lifecycle started to wind down. Alongside other titles like The Last of Us Part II and Ghost of Tsushima, Sony had a strong close to the PS4 as the next-generation PlayStation 5 was released in November. Fans hoped that these titles would receive free PS5 upgrades after upgrading generations, and FF7R is finally coming to PS5 in next-gen glory.

The highlight of the Intergrade announcement was a new episode where players take control of Yuffie Kisaragi on a quest to infiltrate Shinra for some powerful materia.
The trailer showcased the storyline a bit with Yuffie fighting in real time. Afterward, the trailer showcased upgraded graphics for the PlayStation 5 version of the game. Those who own a PS4 copy will get a free upgrade to the PS5 version. The Intergrade version also comes with new features like Performance Optimization Mode and a Photo Mode.
The Yuffie episode is only available for purchase on the PlayStation 5 version. Those who own a digital version will upgrade for no additional cost. The same goes for physical copy owners, but of course they'll need a PS5 with a disc drive.
Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade arrives June 10.
