''Before Crisis'' is currently [[NoExportForYou a Japan-only release,]] being released in episodic format on mobile phones. Square-Enix announced plans to release an English version of the game back in 2006, but this never materialized due to the West's comparatively inferior smartphone network at the time. Hajime Tabata, director of this game along with ''Crisis Core'' and ''Type-0'', has said he'd like to remake it for the 3DS, but so far that hasn't come to pass. Thus, ''Before Crisis'' remains the only ''Final Fantasy VII'' spin-off to not see an English localization, and thanks to its platform of release is one of the most obscure titles in the series.

Late in the game when the player confronts her, Elfé declares directly she's going to take personal revenge for all the AVALANCHE troops you've killed.

''Before Crisis'' follows the Turks, who in this game are a larger and more competent organization compared to the GoldfishPoopGang the players are likely to remember from ''Final Fantasy VII'', and are commanded by a different leader, Veld. The Turks battle the forces of AVALANCHE, the anti-Shinra resistance group led by the young swords-woman Elfé. Contrary to the group of the same name led by Barret years later, this incarnation of AVALANCHE is larger, more violent, more organized, and pose a larger threat to the company. Eventually the Turks find out the AVALANCHE scientist Fuhito is seeking the broken shards of a Summon Materia that calls the ultimate monster Zirconiade, "The One Who Will Burn The World," to do exactly that.
