This article is over 15 years old and may contain outdated information

Just in case you heard about Final Fantasy VII: Snowboarding yesterday and were envious thinking it was one of those Japan-only things I have some good news. Final Fantasy VII: Snowboarding is actually out in the USA! The Gold Saucer mini-game got ported to Verizon’s V-Cast service in 2005 along with a Musashi Samurai Legend game. Both are 3D cell phone games too so it’s not like Japan always gets top quality cell phone games. Square Enix has been pushing their mobile phone games like Dirge of Cerberus: Lost Episode and the very obscure shooter Brave Shot in North America too.

Here’s something you may not be aware of: at one point Square Enix teased the thought of releasing Before Crisis: Final Fantasy VII to North America. A demo was brought to an E3 ages ago and it was sitting next to other games that were released on Verizon’s network like Hexcite Fusion. Hexcite Fusion got released years ago too. We’re still waiting on Before Crisis: Final Fantasy VII.
