Compilation of Final Fantasy VII | Before Crisis | Introduction

Before Crisis takes place six years before the events in Final Fantasy VII. With its military might and Mako generators, the Shinra Electric Power Company is a powerful force in the world, but an environmentally-conscious rebel group known as AVALANCHE has arisen to put a stop to their ways. To deal with this new threat, Shinra organizes an elite team of intelligence officers—the Turks.

At the beginning of the game, the player takes on the role of a Turk trainee—either a male or a female character. From there, they can take on a number of missions in order to stop AVALANCHE, gaining experience and aquiring new Materia along the way.

The creation of Before Crisis was announced a few months after the first Advent Children screenshots were unveiled, becoming the Compilation of FFVII's second entry (and, in fact, marking the first time the term "Compilation of FFVII" was used). Released in Japan on September 24, 2004 for the FOMA 900i series cellular phone, it has since become one of the most popular mobile games in that country. Although there has been talk of BC coming to the US sometime in 2006, nothing has been confirmed; likewise, it is unknown if Europe or other parts of the world will see a release.
