Cloud Strife will face off against Weiss the Immaculate in the forthcoming DLC for PS5’s FF7 Remake: Intergrade, a fight that Final Fantasy 7 fans have been waiting for. In context, FF7 received two sequels: Advent Children, a film, and Dirge of Cerberus, a third-person shooter.
Vincent Valentine starred in Dirge of Cerberus, a film about a growing military organization known as Deepground. Hojo continued to exist as artificial intelligence, and he was utilizing Deepground as part of a scheme to awaken the Omega Weapon, which would collect the Lifestream and transport it to another world.
Due to his immense physical strength, Hojo decided to summon Omega using Weiss the Immaculate. Vincent defeated Weiss and suppressed Omega Weapon with the influence of Chaos. Genesis from Crisis Core appeared and assumed Weiss’ body in a hidden ending, but we never learned what occurred next.
Weiss and Deepground will be back this summer as part of the DLC for the PS5 edition of Final Fantasy 7 Remake. Cloud Strife would have a chance to combat Weiss in the DLC, according to co-director Tetsuya Nomura, who originally wanted this for a hidden boss match in FF7 Remake.
Cloud never got the opportunity to battle Weiss in Dirge of Cerberus since the rest of Avalanche was preoccupied with grappling with Deepground’s high-ranking representatives during the game’s final hours. Cloud’s last canonical fight in the original FF7 sequence was against Rosso the Crimson, a Deepground member. Weiss was Vincent’s adversary, but Cloud never had a chance to attack him. Since they’re both swordsmen, fans have argued for years over who will prevail in a battle between the two.
Weiss was expected to face Yuffie in FF7 Remake after seeing him in the trailer for her DLC episode, but it appears that may not be the case. The hidden bosses in Final Fantasy VII Remake were a letdown, and fans hoping to see one of the Weapon monsters were disappointed. Longtime FF7 fans can eventually get the fanservice-laden boss fight they were waiting for in FF7 Remake with the Yuffie DLC.
