Square Enix has confirmed that legendary music composer Nobuo Uematsu is composing the soundtrack for the upcoming Final Fantasy VII remake. Uematsu has been responsible for the music of Final Fantasy since the beginning of the series, and although he is no longer working with Square Enix in official cast, he is still synonymous with the iconic and popular soundtracks of the series.
Final Fantasy VII Remakwe producer Yoshinori Kitase recently confirmed this in an interview. The interview is in Japanese, but a rough translation of the relevant excerpt is as follows: “I have worked with Uematsu-san on numerous titles, and while I was working on the production of Final Fantasy VII remake, it was actually since Final Fantasy X. that I worked directly with Uematsu-san. When I first asked Uematsu-san to work on the music for the remake, I thought he was going to give me the cold shoulder because he had already left Square Enix and succeeded.”
Final Fantasy VII Remake has no release date, and we do not expect it to change that soon. However, we expect it to be present in a few weeks at the Square Enix E3 press event.
