Final Fantasy VII is a video game that was Squaresoft (now Square Enix)'s first Final Fantasy game on the PlayStation. It was later released for the
PC (albeit less successfully), with Eidos Interactive as the distributor. It is my favorite game of all time, and I guess due to the popularity of the
smash hit, Square Enix plans on releasing a movie (Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children) which is a sequal and a bunch of video games that revolve around
the storeline of the orignal game.
Final Fantasy Advent Children:Two years after the events in "Final Fantasy VII", a disease called 'Seikon-Shoukougun', or 'Geostigma', is
spreading through the planet. This disease is believed to have been caused by the body fighting off foreign material that invaded the body two years
earlier, at the end of "Final Fantasy VII". Guilt-ridden and haunted by his past, ex-SOLDIER Cloud Strife has decided to live a secluded, solitary
life away from his friends while maintaining "Strife's Delivery Service", whose headquarters is located in Tifa Lockheart's bar, the Seventh
Heaven. Tifa's bar serves as an orphanage for children stricken with Geostigma. Here, Tifa keeps an eye on Barret's six-year-old daughter, Marlene,
while Barret searches the planet for an alternative energy source to the fossil fuel, Mako. One day, Cloud receives a phone call from the former
Shinra, Inc. president, Rufus, asking him for protection from a mysterious man named Kadaj. Kadaj, in the meantime, along with his brothers Loz and
Yazoo, are searching for their "mother", and seem to believe that Cloud knows where to find her. Meanwhile, Vincent Valentine has been wandering the
planet gathering information on Kadaj's scheme, and Cloud and his friends must come together again to fight these new enemies.
This is to be released on October 1st, 2005(US). (Unconfirmed)
Final Fantasy 7 Before Crisis:Before Crisis (BC) is the the second released title in the Final Fantasy VII Compilation. It's set 6 years
before Final Fantasy VII and you play the role of a Turk.
As of now, Before Crisis is available ONLY in Japan as a cellphone game. So far, the phones that can handle BC are the P900i, P900iV, N900i, N900iS,
SH900i, SH901iC (Felica), F901iC (Felica), N901iC (Felica), and the P901i.
Before Crisis has been confirmed for the US, but the problems of when and how still remain.
Final Fantasy 7 Crisis Core:Little is known about this game. Rumors are that you take the role of Cloud's old friend Zack (A character who was
killed by Sephiroth that took place before the storyline of FF7)
This game will be released on PSP (Playstation Portable)
Dirge of Cerberus:The third announced title in the Compilation, starring Vincent Valentine. While it was first speculated that the game was
going to be a Third Person Shooter, the game has been classified as an "RPG Shooter", combining both RPG and third person shooters and RPGs.
As for storyline, apparently a group known as the Deep Ground Soldiers, who were locked under ground during the Meteor Crisis, have reappeared and
begun to murder people they see unfit to live.
Playstation 2 release sometime near in the Winter of 2005. (Unconfirmed)
Well, that's them!
Since Final Fantasy 7 is my favorite game off at time, I am extremely excited about the upcomming releases! I simply cannot wait for the movie to be
released, (released in asia in a couple of days) I believe it's going to be a major hit. This will make up for the movie everyone thought Final
Fantasy-The Spirts Within was going to be like. (Personally hated the movie)
Any FF7 fans out there? What do you think?
