Ehrgeiz (エアガイツ Eagaitsu, "Ambition" in German.) - God Bless The Ring is a 3D fighting game developed by DreamFactory and published by Namco in 1998 for the arcade platform. It was first ported to the PlayStation and published by Square Co. in 1998, then to Japan's PlayStation Network by Square Enix in 2008.


From the manual:

50 years ago, a mysterious weapon constructed from an unknown material was discovered in the remains of an ancient 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, hinting that the mysterious stone embedded within EHRGEIZ may be the key to this 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.
