Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade is the upgraded PS5 version of the game, with updated graphics and new content, including an additional boss fight: Weiss the Immaculate. In our Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade guide, we’ll explain how to unlock Weiss’ fight.

You can find Weiss in the Shinra Combat Simulator in Chapter 17, but only after you play and beat the Yuffie DLC, Episode Intermission. Once you beat the DLC and finish the cutscenes, a notice will pop-up saying that you can now take on Weiss in the Shinra Combat Simulator in Chapter 17. An accessible Combat Simulator for Yuffie will also appear in Episode Intermission’s second chapter, though Weiss is not an option to fight for her.

Weiss is a difficult bonus boss fight, and there is a PlayStation trophy, Corruptor of the Immaculate, associated with the fight. You can only fight Weiss on the hard difficulty mode, and you can’t use Götterdämmerungs, the very strong accessory.

Weiss the Immaculate is an important character in the Vincent Valentine spin-off game, Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy 7. One of his partners, Nero, serves as a boss in Episode Intermission, so it makes sense that you have to clear this side story before you can take on Weiss.
