It’s impressive how much people love Yuffie Kisaragi, the Final Fantasy 7series’ spunky (and sneaky) thief from Wutai, given she was only an optional party member in the original. As might be expected, then, many people would like to try the Yuffie-focused DLC episode coming to the remake later this year. Yet, after the DLC announcement aired, many PS4 owners wondered whether they would be able to play the DLC without upgrading to the PS5 version of Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
Unfortunately, the DLC episode will be exclusive to the PS5 version of Final Fantasy 7 Remake. This means that everyone who downloads the PS4 version as one of their March PlayStation Plus games is out of luck, even if they play this version on the PS5. In order to upgrade to the PS5 version and access the Yuffie DLC, players must have purchased Final Fantasy 7 Remake outside of the PS Plus promotion. This is a rather baffling strategy, but it could shine light on some aspects of the DLC that have yet to be fully explained.
