    ~ EHRGEIZ - God Bless the Ring ~

    50 years ago, a mysterious weapon constructed from an unknown material was found in the remains of an old German castle.

    The weapon came to be known as EHRGEIZ. It was presented to the winner of a tournament that determined the world's greatest fighter. In time, it became the name and symbol of the tournament itself.

    In the Middle East, under the command of a particular organization, an excavation site was constructed to explore the ancient ruins believed to hold the secret of immortality. However, the key to the final door of the ruins could not be found. Now, a legend has surfaced among the people, hypothesizing that the mysterious stone embedded within EHRGEIZ is the key to the door.

    The ambitious, hoping to finally unveil the mystery of the ancient ruins, are now set on obtaining EHRGEIZ in the championship tournament.

    Anticipation rises as the aircraft informing the public about The EHRGEIZ Championship Tournament flies around the world.

    The exhilaration of the participants slowly begins to pulse through the air.

From uk.playstation.com:
    The title means 'ambition', and that's an essential quality in this 3D multi-level combat game. The story so far: a mysterious weapon has been found in the remains of an old German castle. This weapon, known as EHRGEIZ, is awarded each year to the winner of a tournament set up to establish the greatest fighter in the world. Now a sinister consortium wants to use it for its own nefarious purposes.

    The sixteen characters include six from Final Fantasy, with favourites such as Cloud and Sephiroth guesting alongside the game's very own Godhand and Wolf Girl Jo. With play in three Arcade modes and a Quest option for stand-alone RPG gaming, you will fight in 12 different arenas to win the ultimate weapon.

    From the superb CG movie opening sequence to the four mini-games, the graphics and the freedom of the fighting action will blow you away. So much more than a fight game, Ehrgeiz blasts down the genre barriers.
