The Compilation of Final Fantasy VII is a sub-franchise within the Final Fantasy series that directly continues the storyline of Final Fantasy VII. Unlike other similar "series" within Final Fantasy, like the Ivalice Alliance, every game in the Compilation are of the same continuous storyline with the main characters often repeating from game to game. It includes all of the spin-off games or movie titles that are related to Final Fantasy VII. This sub-series tends to have a darker tone than most other Final Fantasy games.

  • Before Crisis -Final Fantasy VII-: The mobile game prequel, taking place several years before the start of Final Fantasy VII and continuing forward through time until just before the start of the original game. This tells the tale of the Turks and their battle against the anti-Shinra insurgency group, AVALANCHE, the far more sinister precursor to the small organization the playable characters join in Final Fantasy VII. Never released outside of Japan.
  • Crisis Core -Final Fantasy VII-: The PlayStation Portable prequel taking place approximately during the same time as Before Crisis. This is the story of Zack Fair, a SOLDIER 2nd under the tutelage of Angeal Hewley, the original owner of the Buster Sword. Zack fights against Angeal's best friend, the SOLDIER defector, Genesis Rhapsodos. This chronicles all of the events of Zack's life right up until his death outside Midgar shortly before the beginning of Final Fantasy VII.
  • Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children: The CGI-animated movie sequel, taking place two years after the end of Final Fantasy VII, showing the state of the world following the fall of Meteor. Follows Cloud Strife in his search to receive forgiveness from Aerith Gainsborough for his various failures, so he can recover his health and his happiness with his family with Tifa Lockhart. Cloud and his party members reunite to fight against three mysterious young men somehow connected to Sephiroth, whose mission is to locate Jenova, the enemy of the Planet, whom they call 'Mother'.
  • Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII-: The PlayStation 2 sequel taking place one year after Advent Children and three years after Final Fantasy VII. This side story focuses upon Vincent Valentine and his battle against Shinra's last dark secret, the Deepground organization with connections to Vincent's past. Through a series of flashbacks, the game shows the events of thirty years before Final Fantasy VII, giving details about Vincent Valentine's relationship with Lucrecia Crescent and Professor Hojo and how he failed to stop the tainted birth of Sephiroth.

Trivia

  • The current name "formula" with "AC" (Advent Children), "BC" (Before Crisis), "CC" (Crisis Core), and "DC" (Dirge of Cerberus) was an accident of production. Before Crisis's title was partially chosen to link up the abbreviation "BC" with "AC" in reference to year designations. Early plans for Crisis Core were to name it "Before Crisis Core", but later it was decided that the "Before" was unnecessary, creating the pattern.
