Nobuo Uematsu Confirmed for Final Fantasy VII Remake

Final Fantasy VII fans can breathe a small sigh of relief, as Final Fantasy VII Remake producer Yoshinori Kitase confirmed in a recent interview that legendary composer Nobuo Uematsu is in fact working on the upcoming remake. It’s been a while since we’ve heard any updates on the remake, but we should expect to hear something this year at Square Enix’s E3 panel.

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.
