New information regarding Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerebus: Lost Episode has been released recently via Comic-Con 2006. The mobile counterpart to Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerebus for the PS2, Lost Episode aims to bridge a gap left in the middle of Dirge of Cerebus.
Players will once again take control of Vincent Valentine with gameplay similar to that of its console brother. While playing in the third-person view, Vincent will be controlled with the d-pad as he travels through 3D environments. For the first-person viewpoint an auto-targeting feature has been set in play, however the player is limited to only moving the camera left and right. Also, tapping the d-pad in a given direction will allow Vincent to lunge in a specific direction. Also of note: Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerebus: Lost Episode only allows the use of Vincent's guns, unlike the PS2 game which features melee attacks.
Square-Enix promises at least two to three hours of gameplay, impressive cinematic videos, and also some cameo appearances by other popular characters in the franchise. Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerebus: Lost Episode will be available through Amp'd Mobile this summer.
