According to Final Fantasy VII Remake producer, Yoshinori Kitase, it is said that legendary composer Nobuo Uematsu will help with the PS4 exclusive Final Fantasy VII Remake. The information comes from a pamphlet during a recent BRA★BRA Final Fantasy event.
One of my many favorite composers would have to be Uematsu, and it looks like he will be returning to make more music, but this time for the forthcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake game.
During the late part of April, the interview revealing that Uematsu would help with the upcoming remake of the classic RPG comes from the BRA★BRA Final Fantasy event.

Final Fantasy VII Remake producer, Kitase, was featured in a pamphlet and confirmed during the April interview that Uematsu would return. Many users on Twitter took to translating the pamphlet after a series of screenshots popped up, which is why all of this information is just surfacing in May.
A new FFVII Remake interview finally confirms Nobuo Uematsu is involved in the project. He previously stated in late 2015 that he had no involvement at all with it. Good to hear he is returning! 🙂https://t.co/AHxtnM1Ybu

A screenshot showing an excerpt of the interview can be looked over right here, whereupon Kitase explains how he worked with Uematsu on several projects and how he thought Uematsu wouldn’t be interested working on Final Fantasy VII Remake.

In addition to the above, Kitase had noted that he’s currently working on the production of Final Fantasy VII Remake and that it was since Final Fantasy X that he directly worked with Uematsu.
Kitase went on to say that when he first asked Uematsu to come work on the music for the remake, Kitase thought Uematsu would turn it down since he had already left Square Enix and found success elsewhere.
Lastly, I’m sure E3 2018 will offer a hint or a nice outlook on what to expect regarding Final Fantasy VII Remake as of 2018. Until then, you can look for Final Fantasy VII Remake to launch exclusively for PS4.
