Dirge of Cerberus - Final Fantasy VII -

Game Synopsis


The sprawling metropolis of Midgar had become the world's center. Mako, a seemingly unlimited source of energy, supplied power to everyone. This energy source was developed and monopolised by an entity known as the Shinra Electric Power Company, which covered the surface with energy distribution facilities called Mako reactors. Shinra grew into a malevolent industry with incontestable economic power, as well as a tyrannical hand in politics.

Unknown to most, Mako was the source of all life on the planet - the very lifeblood pulsing through its veins. As Mako was pumped from deep below the planets surface, the world slowly crept toward its imminent demise.

Around the same time, in the city of Edge, eerie rumours passed through the streets. Rumours of screams echoing from nearby Midgar, night after night...
