If you’re unfamiliar with what’s going on here, the ‘issue’ first arose last year when Final Fantasy 7 Remake launched in April 2020. Players were quick to notice that one door in particular in the Sector 7 Slums area of the game was somewhat untextured, and appeared to almost be an error on the part of the developers.
Ever since then, the door has gained notoriety among certain sections of the Final Fantasy 7 fanbase. Some have repeatedly asked Square Enix to fix the textures on the door, while others have simply been content to play the game and look elsewhere for stunning visuals throughout Cloud’s adventure in Midgar.
Now though, we have less than 24 hours to wait until we can explore Midgar all over again. Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade releases tomorrow on June 10 for PS4 and PS5, where it’s a free upgrade for the latter console for anyone who already owns the base game.
Additionally, the InterMISSION DLC will also be launching alongside the upgraded game. This story-focused DLC episode stars Yuffie Kisaragi and Final Fantasy 7: Dirge of Cerberus’ Sonon, seeing them journey to Midgar for a brand new adventure. Although the new story DLC episode is free, it’s unfortunately only available to those on PS5, where the entire game will run at an upgraded 60 frames per second.
In fact, Yuffie’s new story could have big implications for part two of Square Enix’s remake. Previously, co-director Tetsuya Nomura teased during a livestream that part two of Final Fantasy 7 Remake would pick up immediately where Intergrade ends, hinting that Yuffie’s story would bridge the gap between parts one and two of the remake. With part two still nowhere on the horizon, that’s welcome news for players who are desperate to see where Cloud and company’s story will go next.
