Many people may remember Nobuo Uematsu as the legendary composer on some of Final Fantasy’s best soundtracks. Well there’s good news because it sounds like Nobuo Uematsu will be back in order to score the music in the upcoming Final Fantasy 7 Remake video game.
As reported by Siliconera, Final Fantasy 7 Remake’s producer, Yoshinori Kitase, was recently interviewed by a Japanese magazine and in the interview he confirmed the involvement of Nobuo Uematsu.
Kitase said in the interview the following: “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.”
Uematsu scored the original release of Final Fantasy VII and it had one of the best music in the entire series. It’s possible he is reusing the themes from the original game, but will be updating them for a more modern sound for the remake.
