The American version of Final Fantasy VII featured several improvements
over the Japanese version: additional FMV of the Weapons, tightened mini-game control,
"arrows" for the screens, an enhanced Materia management system, and an added cut-scene that
helped clarify Cloud's past. Square, ever the entrepeneur, released the American version
(in Japanese, of course) in Japan as "Final Fantasy VII International." In addition to the
changes in the American version, it offers a fourth disc with information, maps, character
sketches, and general trivia about Final Fantasy VII. There are currently no plans to
bring the contents of the fourth disc to the U.S..
