Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 3’s Main Theme Will Once Again Be A Nobuo Uematsu Joint

"It'd Be My Honor"

Square Enix has been pumping out a number of interesting and insightful behind-the-scenes looks a the production of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth in recent days, including a series dubbed Inside Final Fantasy VII Rebirth which currently has four episodes, along with a special “Talk Session” on the Square Enix Music Channel that debuted overnight.

It’s the session on the music channel that’s of particular interest here, with the 40-plus-minute video featuring discussion between creative director Tetsuya Nomura, scenario writer Kazushige Nojima and longtime (occasionally returning) series composer Nobuo Uematsu – notable three key figures from development of the original Final Fantasy VII.

Aside from the absolute treat of watching these industry veterans and creators behind some of the most beloved games of all time reminiscing and ribbing each other over their early days in the scene, we also get the first confirmation from Uematsu that he’s once again returning to compose the main theme for the third and final part of the Final Fantasy VII Remake Project, which is yet to receive its official title after Final Fantasy VII Remake and Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.

Playfully, Nomura tells the room that this “isn’t an official statement or offer” and more of a “gentleman’s agreement” but essentially has Uematsu confirm his intent to return for the third title on camera, which sounds like a deal sealed in my ears. The news might not come as any surprise either, given the composer has made guest appearances for the main themes of both games in the trilogy so far (“Hollow” and “No Promises to Keep,” respectively).

We gave Final Fantasy VII Rebirth a huge 9/10 in our review, with Harry saying, “Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is an immense and expansive middle chapter of this ambitious remake trilogy. A reimagined and redefined behemoth of a game that simultaneously plays on nostalgia and forces you to question your memories of the original. While it suffers from some rote open world elements and a few technical issues, Rebirth is another magnificent entry into the gilded halls of Final Fantasy.”
