Final Fantasy 7 Remake
PlayStation 4™ – US, EU, AU & JAPAN
One of the most anticipated games from Square Enix, Final Fantasy VII Remake released its theme song trailer. The video features the song titled “Hollow” and some scenes of Cloud, Tifa, Aerith, and Barret’s adventures in the city of Midgar. Watch it below!
The video above is the English version of the Theme Song Trailer, you may also check the Japanese version here.
The trailer showcased the theme song “Hollow” composed by Nobuo Uematsu, sung by Yosh (Survive Said the Prophet) and written by Kazushige Nojima. Also, the less than 4-minute video above blessed us with scenes that goes in-depth with the adventures of Cloud, Tifa, Aerith, and Barret in the city of Midgar. This also marks the first official appearances of Red XIII, cross-dressing Cloud, Wall Market in the Midgar Slums, and more.
In addition, the song’s composer shared some comments and reminiscing while working on the song.
Whichever game you pick from the FINAL FANTASY series, they all have many powerful memories for me. However, if you limit things to just the music, then you could say that VII left the biggest impression on me in the sense that it represents the point at which I was able to start challenging the boundaries and being more experimental.
Nobody could have possibly known what the right answers were back then. I just sat alone in my room each day and wordlessly took on musical challenge after new musical challenge, setting no final goal for the finished game, and without even listening to the opinions of others. And the result of that was the soundtrack to FINAL FANTASY VII.
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.
The first FINAL FANTASY game that I worked on at Square Enix was FINAL FANTASY VII. I sorted out the chorus and actually sung in it myself, as well as putting in the short extracts from Haydn ‘s “the Creation” that play during the story and directing the singing on them.
When Mr. Kitase and Mr. Toriyama contacted me about FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE, and with Mr. Uematsu even recommending me for the job, there was no way I could turn it down!
It is the same every time, but I feel that I have managed to somehow write music that very much has the “Final” ethos of FINAL FANTASY behind it.
“Would you like to create this scene from the music up?”
This very happy question was how I was asked to join the Final Fantasy VII Remake development team.
Time has passed since then and it is now 10 years since I became involved in games. Working on the FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE feels very strange, but at the same time it also brings back vivid memories of the sounds, surprises and emotions I experienced at the time.
Working on places like Wall Market, the Honeybee Inn and Midgar Highway was one thrill after another! I brought back the surprise and enjoyment that I felt as a consumer of the original game, but the biggest change this time round is that I am now on the side providing those experiences.
These are just excerpts, you may check the full comments of the composers here!
At the same time, another video from Final Fantasy’s channel was uploaded. It features the making and some behind the scene of the game’s theme song featuring composer Nobuo Uematsu and singer Yosh. Check it out below!

Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII Remake will be released in multiple parts. During E3 2019, Final Fantasy VII Remake producer Yoshinori Kitase took the stage and discussed tidbits of information about the game. According to the producer, the massive content of the game, which is the first part, will be released on the official launch date, which will require two Blu-ray discs. However, the initial release of the game will still not cover the full Final Fantasy VII story.
For a brief overview, the upcoming game is a remake of the 1997 PlayStation title, Final Fantasy VII. The game follows the role of the mercenary Cloud Strife as he and eco-terrorist group AVALANCHE battle against the wicked Shinra megacorporation and the rogue former Shinra soldier Sephiroth. The gameplay is planned to combine real-time action and turn-based elements just like with Dissidia Final Fantasy.
The remake will only include the part of the story in Midgar, but according to Kitase, it will be a “fully standalone gaming experience.” The producer added, “At that point, we decided we’re going to focus this game on Midgar and what happened in Midgar,” Kitase said. “And unfortunately, we can’t say anything more about future games after that, because we don’t know ourselves, really.”
More so, Kitase said that he and his team in Square Enix are still “fleshing out” what will be covered in the game’s next chapter.
