From the publisher: 3 years after the conclusion of Final Fantasy VII, a mysterious organization suddenly appeared and started to attack residents of the town. They are called "Deep Ground Soldiers", who were stuck in the underground of Midgal city because of the Meteo incident. The game's main character, Vincent Valentine seemed to be connected with this series of events but the reason was unclear. What happened underground over these past 3 years? Why was this tragedy happening? When the world is surrounded by darkness, Vincent's gun will compose requiems...

The main character in the game, Vincent, is a sharpshooter, and so the main weapon in the game is the gun. Many different types of guns will appear in the game, and the player has to utilize them effectively according to the situation. Besides having different types of guns in the game, it is also possible for the player to add on certain parts to the guns to enhance their capabilities. This ability to freely assemble the guns is sure to enhance the entertainment value of the game to no small extent.


Square-Enix's Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII is in stock today as Asia release version at US$ 69.90. The Japanese version of the game is due later this week. Also in stock today is the game's main theme Redemption performed by Gackt, available as regular version (US$ 11.90) and special boxed CD+DVD Limited Edition (US$ 18.90).
