Square Enix announced today that the much rumored spinoff of [i]Final Fantasy VII[/i] is indeed a reality. In the latest issue of Japan’s Jump Magazine, the company has released the first information on an action starring [i]FFVII[/i]’s Vincent Valentine. The game has been officially titled [i]Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII[/i]
The game lets players take control of Vincent, who is a former member of the Turks. It also takes place a year after [i]Advent Children[/i], meaning it is after the events of the original game. The story begins as a secret group calling themselves “DG” starts attacking a peaceful town, causing Vincent to take action.
Besides these few details, Square Enix has not revealed anything else on [i]Dirge of Cerberus[/i]. A release in Japan is expected for 2005, and it is possible that it may show up during the company’s press conference at the Tokyo Game Show this month.
