New screens sing the Dirge of Cerberus

The Final Fantasy series gets its first in-your-face action game this August when Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII arrives. Set to fit another puzzle piece into the complex and ongoing saga of Final Fantasy VII, it offers up a whole new take on the series.

That's evidenced by these new screenshots, which showcase the beguiling and sexy Rosso - as well as what demonic cover boy Vincent Valentine looked like in his past as a member of the Turks. His tenure as a member of the Shinra company's personal squad of agents is a matter of discussion in the original game - clearly, Dirge is set to fill in important back story, as well as tell the tale of what happens three years after the original PSone RPG.

Anyway, click that images tab up above for the new screens, as well as the chance to catch up on the extensive coverage we've done before. If you'd like to read a little more about the US version of the game, fresh from E3 a couple of weeks ago, just hitthis linkand you're gold.
