In an interview with Jeuxvideo.com, Nobuo Uematsu has revealed that he is not involved with the Final Fantasy VII remake…(“Not at all.”) This is a good indicator of the things to come, Square Enix will either commission yet another re-arrangement of the original Final Fantasy VII score, a-la Takeharu Ishimoto’s Crisis Core. Or commission a brand new original score for Final Fantasy VII Remake, a-la Masashi Hamauzu’s Dirge of Cerberus…Yeah, Probably the former.
Nobuo Uematsu left Square Enix in 2004 and has since made his feelings known about the company continuing to re-appropriate his music. While he has worked with the company on occasion since his departure, as a freelancer, it is clear that the relationship between Uematsu & Square Enix is rocky at best. Of course, legally Square Enix has the rights to use Uematsu’s Final Fantasy music in any manner they see fit, but all things considered, this one of the many reasons why I personally don’t feel thrilled about a Final Fantasy VII remake.
