London (6th November 2006) - Square Enix Ltd., the publisher of Square Enix® interactive entertainment products in Europe and other PAL territories, today announces the UK and European release date for the action shooter set in the world of one of Square Enix's most popular titles. DIRGE of CERBERUS -FINAL FANTASY® VII- will be available from 17th November 2006 exclusively on the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system.

Part of the compilation of FINAL FANTASY VII series that revisits the characters and locations of the award-winning RPG, DIRGE of CERBERUS -FINAL FANTASY VII- is an exciting action shooter set three years after Meteor's devastating attack on the planet in the original PSone title FINAL FANTASY VII.

Starring as FINAL FANTASY VII's enigmatic Vincent Valentine, players must battle against a mysterious organisation known as "Deepground." Before Meteorfall, the organisation's soldiers formed one of Shinra's most secret projects - but with the destruction of Midgar, the soldier's left below the town's smouldering remains were forgotten. Vincent Valentine must now retaliate against the impending threat with his trusty Cerberus in hand.

Since the original Japanese release, Square Enix has made several changes to the game play to offer an even more immersive experience. Many aspects of the game have been enhanced. New features include the addition of over 40 new missions, an Ex Hard mode and improved moves and abilities for Vincent.
