As you already know, much of Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberus is unknown, and this is no less the case than when looking at which characters will play an active role in the game. Having said this, we are certain that Vincent Valentine will be the star; we have seen what is uniquely and distinctly him from the trailers and also from the official Square Enix site.

Yuffie, Dirge of Cerberus
What is still slightly unclear, however, is whether the small cat featured in the above picture is Cait Sith from Final Fantasy VII. All common sense seems to suggest it is him, though we are of the opinion that it is a little to early to speculate on what role he will play. Will he be Vincent’s sidekick? Will he merely appear as a Kingdom Hearts-esque cameo? The answers are frustrating, but are simply ‘we don’t know yet!’

It would definitely be great if Cait Sith is involved, we believe his character would add quite a bit to the story line, as it did in Final Fantasy VII. Please feel free to check back soon to see whether there is more news about the characters involvement in the Dirge of Cerberus; rest assured we’ll post it as soon as it arrives.
