Before Crisis: Final Fantasy VII (ビフォア クライシス -ファイナルファンタジーVII- ,Bifoa Kuraishisu -Fainaru Fantajī Sebun) is a Japanese action role-playing game developed and published by Square Enix in 2004. It was the first original (i.e. not an enhanced remake) game to be produced by Square Enix exclusively for mobile phones, and was released on NTT DoCoMo's FOMA iMode line of phones on a monthly subscription basis. Following an announcement at TGS 2006, it was released for the first of two additional Japanese mobile carriers, Softbank Yahoo! Mobile, in January 2007, and a version for EZweb was released in April 2007. In their pre-E3, 2005 press conference, Square Enix announced that an English version of the game would be released in the United States sometime during 2006, but this never materialized.
Before Crisis is the prequel to the 1997 Sony PlayStation video game Final Fantasy VII, taking place during the six years prior to the events of that game. It involves the adventures of the Turks, a group of supporting characters featured in Final Fantasy VII, and was the second installment in the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII series, which also includes the games Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII, Dirge of Cerberus Lost Episode: Final Fantasy VII, and Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, as well as the CGI movie Final Fantasy VII Advent Children and the OVA Last Order: Final Fantasy VII.
