Legendary Composer Nobuo Uematsu is Working on Music For Final Fantasy VII Remake
While the recent news about Final Fantasy VII Remake has been discouraging, in terms of the game's lengthy timeline, it looks like the highly-anticipated roleplaying game will be worth the wait, especially now that it has been confirmed that famed composer Nobuo Uematsu is involved.
The legendary composer will make music for the game's soundtrack. The news came from SiliconEra, who confirmed the info from a translated tweet that was posted online. You can read the translation below:
Yoshinori Kitase, Producer: “I’ve worked on numerous titles with Uematsu-san, and while I’m currently working on the production of Final Fantasy VII Remake, it’s actually been since Final Fantasy X that I directly worked with Uematsu-san. So when I first went to ask Uematsu-san to come work on the music for the remake, I thought he would give me the cold shoulder since he had already left Square Enix and found success.”
Now that I know that Uematsu is involved, I'm more excited to get my hands on the Final Fantasy VII Remake but it will probably take a long time before we actually see it released. Uematsu's epic music in Final Fantasy VIII inspired me back in the day.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is currently in development for Playstation 4. It's expected to release before 2023.
