Itís been a long time coming, but European gamers will finally be able to get their hands on Dirge of Cerberus - Final Fantasy VII this November.

Our version won't have an online play option, unlike the Japanese version, on account of none of us having a hard drive for our PAL PS2s. However, it will boast more than 40 extra missions for hero Vincent to swan his way through.

Square-Enix is also promising an impressive list of additions and tweaks to the original Japanese release, giving Euro FF fans plenty to look forward to.

These include Vincent being able to move 1.2 times faster and use a new double-jump, quicker aiming that can be increased by customising weapons, a new rush move and a magic bar that no longer depletes when using the Limit Break attack. Feel the love.

Thereís also a batch of modified weapons, artwork and sound galleries as well as a new character model to unlock by completing the Ex Hard mode, for those that consider themselves truly hardcore. You know, like, double hardcore.

So, Novemberís the month for those that canít wait to indulge in slick gunplay, over-stylised hair and effeminate clothing.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
