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. [Thanks, @aibo_ac7.]
Here’s what Kitase says in the above snippet:
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.”[laughs]
Final Fantasy VII Remake is in development for PlayStation 4. You can check out more from the game in a recent interview with Art Director & VFX Director Shintaro Takai who talked about the team and what it was like working on the original game as well as his involvement in guiding a young team beyond a simple remake.
