The team at Square Enix has some good news for fans of the evergreen Final Fantasy universe, as the highly anticipated remake of 1997's Final Fantasy VII will be scored by Final Fantasy XIII-2's Suzuki Mitsuto and Hamauzu Masashi.
As a reminder, Final Fantasy XIII-2's acclaimed OST was created by Mitsuto, Hamauzu and Naoshi Mizuta.
Square has released an all-new gameplay trailer for Remake, accompanied by the game's official theme song, titled Hollow. The piece of music was created by Nobuo Uematsu (also known as "the Beethoven of video game music"), with vocals by Morita "Yosh" Yoshiya of Japanese rock band, Survive Said the Prophet.
That's not all, as the company has also unveiled a new behind-the-scenes video of the recording sessions for Hollow. The featurette is a great way to learn more about the tune, as it's focused on Uematsu himself and his point of view.
"This time round I was given the honour of writing “Hollow” that plays during the game, and this track is also in a style that has never been seen in FINAL FANTASY before. To me, it is very much a continuation of my experimental challenges in the field of music," Uematsu explained in his notes on the music of the remake.
Without further ado, be sure to take a closer look at the aforementioned FFVII: Remake videos down below:
The world has fallen under the control of the Shinra Electric Power Company, a shadowy corporation controlling the planet’s very life force as mako energy. In the sprawling city of Midgar, an anti-Shinra organization calling themselves Avalanche have stepped up their resistance. Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to the group, unaware of the epic consequences that await him. The story of this first, standalone game in the FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE project covers up to the party’s escape from Midgar, and goes deeper into the events occurring in Midgar than the original FINAL FANTASY VII.
Final Fantasy VII: Remake is coming to PlayStation 4 on April 10, 2020.
