Final Fantasy VII Remake Petition

Many of you have very fond memories of this game -- the twisted storyline, detailed characters, and diverse soundtrack have created many fans. Even though I'm sure it's possible to create a website or blog based entirely off the idea of remaking FF7, this first petition is just a starting point. I'm sure that the next one is not too far away.
After Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children came out, the voice for a remake of the original game became stronger than ever before. Many people other than myself visualized the breathtaking combat and CGI of AC in the gameplay of one of the greatest games of all time, and started to clamour for it to happen. That was 6 years ago; the time for action isn't just here, it's overdue.
All fans of the series, please help bring about the game you want. Sign the petition and show Square Enix how much they have to gain by bringing it about. You owe it to other gamers, and yourself.  As mentioned on the page, FFREMAKE has a policy of zero disclosure of personal information -- the name and email address you sign with will never be published or contact you in any way without your permission.
The current number of signatures for each petition will be posted at regular intervals, along with other important info. Stay tuned.

Welcome to FFREMAKE!

Hello, friends, and welcome to FFREMAKE! This is the world's first ever blog dedicated to the reconstruction of those graphically primitive games that took up so much of your time as a kid (maybe they still do!). Whether you are a newbie to the series or a veteran Final Fantasy fanatic, is the place for you.
Remember the captivating storylines of Final Fantasies I-IX, restricted by their inability to show the same kind of beauty and power in the CGI that Square Enix now so flawlessly delivers? Perhaps you were obstructed by the turn-based battle systems, unable to completely immerse yourself in the combat with only a series of entered commands? This blog is the solution to your problems. Have your say here, and you could see your favourite Final Fantasy remade in blu-ray quality the way you want it!
Here's how it works. On the Petitions page you will find all of our current forms for the remake of various Final Fantasies -- feel free to fill them out. If there is not yet a petition for the game that you want, or you dislike the terms of any that exist, take your thoughts to the forums! So long as there is enough support, I will be happy to create a petition for you. You can contact me at
If we can show the makers of the series that there is still a massive fan base for their original games, they would be insane not to take advantage of it. Remember -- retro Final Fantasy VII sold almost four times as many copies in its first 3 days of sale than the latest instalment, Final Fantasy XIV, did in its first month. If SE's current titles had the same level of success as some of their older ones, think how much more money they would make!
See you on the forums!
