About Arcade Mode
When you play the arcade mode, you have to fight a total of 9 characters
normally, and if you are fast enough, you get to fight "Guardian" Cloud and
"Summoner" Tifa in addition. There is no way to fight with the other guest
After you complete the game with any character, you get an ending. The only
characters without endings are:
Upon getting the ending, you can view it under the movie player option, using
the D-pad left or right to toggle between ending titles.
Saving Game Data
When you release a character or movie sequence, you must save your game under
the memory card option. When you turn on the Playstation again, you must
remember to load the game, because there is no auto save or auto load.
Here's what they memory card options are:
When you select load, they will show 2 options, asking you if you are sure:
No (highlighted as default)
When you select save, they will ask you if you are sure or if you want to
overwrite a previous save game, showing you the same options above.
Once the little text box seems to have stopped changing and its words end with a
fullstop, then it has finished saving and just press any button to return.
Character Select Screen
At the character select screen, you can do a number of things. Pressing L1 or R1
will allow you to switch between different control settings in this order:
Here, you will be able to check you control settings and set your custom control
settings by pressing the Select button.
In the custom control settings screen, you can hold on any button and use the D-
pad up and down to select what controls you want to set (nice sounds when you
press up or down).
These are the settings you can assign to a button:
Not in use
* The first 4 options are compulsory
You can hold on either the D-pad up or down as you confirm your character to
select his 2nd or 3rd outfit respectively.
When you are selecting your character, you can pick his/her/its alternate outfit
by holding on the D-pad up, as you press any button.
You can also select a character's secret third outfit after you have satisfied
certain conditions by holding on the D-pad down as you confirm your character.
These are the condition that I know of so far:
+ Cloud Strife - Win the game with Yuffie Kisaragi
+ Dasher Inoba - Get 35000 points or higher in Beach Battle
(See: my Minigames Faq)
+ Godhand - Beat CPU in Evil Panel
+ Han Daehan - Kill Red Scorpion and get EHRGEIZ
+ Jo - Win the game at normal difficulty or higher without using any continues
+ Lee Shuwen - Do a 10 hit or higher combo in practice mode
Tip: Just use Godhand's Maha Punch as it can do 10 hits.
Use Shuwen's Down, Up attack on Django until 10 hits.
+ Prince Naseem - Get 2000 points and higher in Infinity Battle
Tip: Set Game difficulty to very easy.
+ Sasuke- Do a 10 hit or higher combo in practice mode
Tip: Just use Godhand's Maha Punch as it can do 10 hits.
Use Shuwen's Down, Up attack on Django until 10 hits.
+ Tifa Lockheart- Win the game with Vincent Valentine
+ Yoko- Beat the CPU in Battle Runner
Satisfying a specific condition will bring about a fixed release of a certain
character's third outfit.
This may not be true in the case of Shuwen or Sasuke.

The Story of Ehrgeiz
50 years ago, a sword containing an unknown material was found in the ruins
of an ancient German castle. The blade of the sword was broken and a mysterious
stone was set in its handle. The weapon took on the name "EHRGEIZ" and became
the symbol for a tournament, which would decide the world's strongest fighter.
The sword was presented to the champion.
Meanwhile, a secret excavation of a Middle Eastern desert ruin was ordered by
a secret organization called 'Red Scorpion'. It was rumoured that the ruins
contained the secret of immortality. As a front, Red Scorpion claimed to be an
international organization established to protect international archaeological
treasures and ruins. In reality, they are a weapons manufacturer collaborating
to develop bio-weapons. They hope to rediscover and use technology founded by
After months of excavating, Red Scorpion located the ancient ruins. They
located a door to the ruin but it could not be opened. A special key was
Does the key still exist? If so, where is it? The strongest theory points to
a mysterious stone set in the EHRGEIZ. On the same day the door was discovered,
the mysterious stone in EHRGEIZ radiated an eerie luster and brilliance. Legend
says those who come in contact with the stone will be overwhelmed with a burning
desire to answer a mysterious calling.
Koji Masuda, the defending and consecutive three-time champion is the current
holder of EHRGEIZ. Like a magnet, the sword navigates Koji to the Middle East
and eventually the ancient ruin. The Red Guardians are not at all pleased by
this intrusion into their secret finding. Disregarding the call of the sword, he
has no choice but to flee the Middle East. If caught, he would surely be
Koji now realizes the dangers of the tournament and the sword. EHRGEIZ is far
more than a mere symbol of fighting excellence. Understanding the sword brings
danger to his life, Koji reluctantly decides to withdraw from the tournament and
relinquish his right to the sword. In a letter to his daughter, Yoko, Koji asks
her to succeed his will and use her martial art skills to regain the sword. But
news of the mysterious stone has travelled afar and now many more have the
curiosity to seek it.
This is the order of events:
+ Stage 1 - The Dome
V.S. Dasher Inoba
This is where the tournament starts and ends. Defeating Inoba grants you to
possess the EHRGEIZ.
+ Stage 2 - On the Roof
After getting the EHRGEIZ, you decide to head straight for the hyper-ancient
ruins. Thus, you make your way to the roof of a building, to board the airship,
but you are stopped by Jo, the wolf girl.
+ Stage 3 - On the Airship
Having defeated Jo, you take the ladder up to the airship, before you get to
enter the airship, Godhand appears and challenges you.
+ Stage 4 - Streets of Hongkong
V.S. Lee Shuwen
With Godhand out of the way, you successfully board the airship and fly to
Hongkong. Here, you end up in a fight against Chinese martial artist Lee Shuwen.
+ Stage 5 - On the Train
After a tough match against Lee Shuwen, you decide to head to Germany by train.
During the train ride, you find that Yoko from the ICPO has been informed of
your arrival and you are forced to have a match with her on the train.
+ Stage 6 - In the Coliseum
V.S. Prince Naseem
Upon arriving at the destination, Naseem appears to challenge the winner of the
EHRGEIZ tournament. You have to defeat him to proceed.
+ Stage 7 - Digup
V.S. Han Daehan
After jumping down the entrance to the basement, you find that you are ambushed
by Han Daehan. You are then forced into another fierce fight.
+ Stage 8 - Shelter
You proceed on and reach an area with high security. Here, the powerful Ninja
Sasuke attempts to take your life. You begin another duel again.
+ Bonus Stage 1 - Elevator
V.S. Cloud Strife
You defeat Sasuke easily the doors to the elevator open. You proceed, and a a
mysterious "Guardian" appears and challenges you. You pit your skills against
+ Bonus Stage 2 - Underground
V.S. Tifa Lockheart
The elevator stops after you defeat the guardian and you appear in another
basement area. Another strange opponent, the "Summoner", appears.
Stage 9 - Computer Lab
You make you way to the secret lab where you find a strange beast guarding the
place. It attacks you instinctively and you fight back.
Stage 10 - Unknown Area
V.S. Red Scorpion
When you defeat the beast, the place starts exploding and you are soon shrouded
in darkness. The next thing you know is that you are in a strange dark room with
a ferocious monster, which looks several times more powerful than you. You find
that you cannot injure it, and realize that you have to use the 2 swords in the
boxes. Quickly, as a time limit unspoken of is closing in on you, you manage to
free the swords and deal the beast a final blow. The beast explodes in to many
goodies and you collect them. Then, the broken EHRGEIZ in your possession which
you then realize had mysteriously disappeared falls from the sky. But the sword
is no longr broken and is complete. With the complete EHRGEIZ, you thus continue
with your quest.
Arcade to Playstation
Ehrgeiz was released by Squaresoft in 1997 in the arcades with the help of
Namco. Namco helped distribute the game and provided the hardware while
Squaresoft had Dreamfactory work on the software. By the end of 1998, Ehrgeiz is
finally available on the Playstation.
But there has to be changes. With the exception of the addition of the mini
games and the Quest mode, there is a difference in the arcade mode.
Firstly, the graphics look different. It is hard to say whether the 3D
characters look better or not, but it is evident that the characters and
surroundings have a lighter tone. In the arcade, the characters seem to have a
darker and smoother complexion where the characters on the Playstation have more
beige skin. Many different details have been made more obvious, like the
flashing white of a character before he is about to be thrown.
The next difference is in the 'explosions' or impact when a character is hit.
I remember clearly that in the arcade, there will be a nice big sphere of energy
with 'electricity' upon impact, and I do not think the Playstation version has
the 'electricity'. I also saw that when Cloud did Omnislash in the arcade, there
were yellow sparks flying when he hit the opponent.
The next thing is about the winning poses and the zoom in and zoom out. The
winning poses are short and abrupt, and the poses have all been shortened by a
significant length of time. The camera does not zoom as far in and as far out as
in the arcade version.
Another thing easily noticed is the replay that you see when you knockout the
opponent or vice versa. It gives the game a different feel. Also, they do not
show you the sequences between fight, like the map of the area and such, unlike
in the arcade.
If you look at the backgrounds, they have become disappointing. In the
arcade, they were 3-dimensional, now they are but 2D, motionless picture strips.
You may think that it is perhaps the fault of the Playstation's lack of power,
but strangely enough, if you play the Ehrgeiz demo included with the FFVIII demo
which was packaged with the Japanese version of Brave Fencer Musashi, you will
notice that the men in the first stage background are totally 3D and moving,
just like the arcade's! Why has this reduction in graphics been brought about?
Another significant difference is that the endings are different. It seems
that there are differences in the Playstation endings and arcade endings.
The only so called improvement, is the addition of characters, character
outfits, and sound. Voices have been added to the fighting of all the
characters. Although moves remained unchanged, voices have been added. One
important addition is the newly arranged music that you can select in the option
setting. There are also secret outfits for the characters originally included in
One other minor change is the time given to you when you are choosing
characters. In the arcade you have 20 seconds. On the Playstation, you have 60
This is about all the changes from the arcade to the Playstation. Nevertheless,
Ehrgeiz still works and plays great.
