Nobuo Uematsu is involved with Final Fantasy VII Remake By Wazi the pa on May 14, 2018 at 8:15 AM

Producer Yoshinori Kitase has confirmed that longtime and legendary composer Nobuo Uematsu is in fact involved with the development of Final Fantasy VII Remake.

According to an excerpt of the interview confirming his inclusion (provided by user @aibo_ac7), Kitase said:

Yoshinori Kitase: “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.”

With Uematsu having composed the original score for the 1997 title, it seems fitting that he’s making a return for the remake.

Final Fantasy VII Remake is currently in development for PlayStation 4.
