Square Enix has revealed plenty of new gameplay details for Yuffie's DLC chapter - now specifically known as Episode INTERmission.
Wutai agent Yuffie will team up with Sonon, a new character, and will have an ability called Banishment that stacks more damage if you've recently blown through your ATB gauge.
She'll also be able to use a throwing star, and Elemental Ninjutsu - meaning she can switch attacks between fire, ice, lightning and wind.
