A person on Twitter claims that there is a recent interview where Kitase reveals that Nobuo Uematsu is involved with the remake.



The source is apparently "当サイトコメ欄" but I have no idea what that is.

Aaaah! You beat me to it by minutes!

But damn, this is a printed article.

Two interviews and that announcement page texture is way too much VII-Reminders for Square not to be planning something for E3.

It's interesting since I recall Uematsu not planning to work on Remake some time ago.
With this I assume he's one of a few different people contributing arrangements for the soundtrack.

I've long thought Takeharu Ishimoto would be one of them.

Okay guys - Speed translation at the request of Chip :

北瀬:
現在私は『FINAL FANASY VII REMAKE』を
制作中なのですが、植松さんは色々なタイトル
に関わられているけれど、僕が植松さんと直接
仕事したのは『FINAL FANTASY X』以来なんです。
最初に植松さんにリメイクの音楽のお仕事
を頼みに行った時、
もうすでに植松さんはスクエニを離れて活躍してらっしゃったから、
冷たくあしらわれるんじゃないかと……

一同: (笑)

北瀬:思っていたんですが、VIIってワードがよ

Kitase :
Currently, I am working on the FFVII Remake, and although Uematsu-san has been working
on various titles, I haven't worked directly with him since FFX.
When I first went to ask Uematsu-san to work on the music for the remake,
he had already distanced himself from SE to work on other projects, so I was thinking
(worried) I might be treated coldly....

Everybody present :
(laughs)

Kitase :
Or so I thought, but the words "FFVII"
stylistically speaking,
Or so I thought, but the power of the words FFII man,


This seems to heavily imply Uematsu is indeed involved with the remake.
The way it's phrased, and the choice of terms seems to suggest that what Uematsu is being asked to do isn't just a few tracks or something, but as the primary composer and director for the music.

Thanks hian!


retro*dream said the following about "当サイトコメ欄"
“From the comments column of our/my site”
Sounds like a user took a picture from an unknown source and posted it to his site
I've asked aibo_ac7/FF-Reunion.net on Twitter what magazine the interview excerpt might be from, but since I don't speak Japanese they might not reply.

Also, I just want to fly this by you people, as I shared this with Chip earlier on discord -

- Around the period shortly prior to Kitase and Hashimoto being raised to management, Sakaguchi and Nomura made an interview with Famitsu where they discussed their history and expressed a desire to work together again.
- In this period, Sakaguchi went to SE for frequent meetings.
- Uematsu is Sakaguchi's primary composer, and hardly ever works extensively on projects not tied to Sakaguchi (a few, but not many).
- SE has since their PR students with FFXV made ardent strides to improve their relationships and optics with Sakaguchi.
- In this period, despite having three games on his plate (Terra Battle 1, 2 and Terra Wars), Sakaguchi has being doing less and less active work with Mistwalker the last 6 months.

Taken together, I speculate, and this is very tentative speculation, that SE might be planning to tie Sakaguchi to the remake in some capacity. This might be SE's ace in the hole for FFVIIR - If they can put Nomura, Kitase, Uematsu and Sakaguchi on the box, the game will explode.
Keep your eyes peeled for the next reveal, because it might be heavy.

Nice work Radigar! The magazine is somehow related to BRA★BRA Final Fantasy. They recently had FFVII-themed music events.

In a twitter post from April 28 we can see the magazine pictures on a giant poster.

(SPOILER)



My bet is that the magazine, with the interview, was on sale at one of the recent BRA★BRA events.

EDIT: It was indeed on sale at the event.

Man, I'm happy about this. I felt that Uematsu had a bit of a dip after the PS2 era trying to adjust to modern HD equipment, mastering and production, but he's been absolutely killing it with his new OST works on Terra Battle 1 and 2, and if they're anything to go by, the remake's soundtrack will be great indeed.

Cait Sith theme anyone?

Cloud's freakout moments?

This literally has the FFVII intro theme leitmotif in it
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLx5Bs5BBhw

Materia Cave?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OClZZiNYfyE

Mixing of synths and traditional instruments, and blending them really well - the hallmark of the FFVII soundtrack
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4fTyuVhzPo


You could almost be forgiven for thinking Uematsu was using this soundtrack to prep for the remake, or that he was already working on the remake and it was impacting his other work.
If the remake has this kind of mastering/production, instrument use etc. it will be fetching amazing. Like seriously.

This is huge news. Are we 100% sure it's accurate?

Although it seems to be accurate, I'm gonna take the bullet and admit that I'm not fond of how vague the interview blurb sounds, at least given the current translation. I feel like there's LOADS of implication, but zero confirmation.

I'll put an article up as speculative for now

AAAAAAA

I wasn't of the mind that the remake OST was "Uematsu or Bust" or anything, but that is spectacular news if true, nonetheless.

This is a very interesting turn of events. I'll be quite pleased if true. Personally, remixes of VII's soundtrack by other members of SE's sound team haven't left memorable impressions on me. I'm indifferent towards the remixed songs found in Dissidia and Crisis Core's soundtrack by Takeharu Ishimoto, despite loving his original compositions for the latter game. However, I think Nobuo Uematsu's work on Advent Children was amazing.

Dammit guys, don't get me pumped for E3. I remember feeling pretty burnt after 2016's no-show. Less so with 2017's no-show, I became wiser.
