Nobuo Uematsu, the Legendary Composer, Returns for Final Fantasy 7 Remake's Finale

Nobuo Uematsu, the renowned composer behind the iconic Final Fantasy soundtracks, has confirmed his return to compose the main theme for the concluding installment of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake trilogy.

In a recent video released on Square Enix Music's YouTube channel, Uematsu and Rebirth's creative director, Tetsuya Nomura, discussed Uematsu's involvement in the upcoming game. Uematsu, who composed the scores for the first nine mainline Final Fantasy games, expressed his honor in being asked to return, even referring to it as a "gentleman's agreement."

Uematsu acknowledges the challenge of surpassing the exceptional music he has already composed for the series, noting that it will require immense effort and dedication.

Uematsu's Reflections on His Career

Recent interviews with Uematsu have hinted at a potential end to his career as a full-time video game composer. In an interview with Zeit Online, he expressed his doubts about composing a complete game score again due to the demanding nature of the work.

In the YouTube video, Uematsu reiterates these sentiments, emphasizing the physical and mental toll such an undertaking requires. He notes that his age and the increasingly ambitious scale of Final Fantasy games make it difficult for him to maintain the necessary stamina.
