Final Fantasy 7 Remake Has a New Theme Song From Nobou Uematsu

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Has a New Theme Song From Nobou Uematsu

With new footage showing Red XIII, Hojo, and more.

It's been 23 years since the original Final Fantasy 7 first launched. To mark the anniversary, Square Enix has released a brand new look at the upcoming Final Fantasy 7 Remake, as well as a new theme song for the remake.

You can see the new footage just below, which teases Cloud and Tifa's origins, as well as a look at Sephiroth in the impressive remake. All this new footage is backed by a new song, 'Hollow,' written by none other than Nobou Uematsu, legendary composer for the original Final Fantasy 7 (among countless other games).

The song is everything you'd expect from Uematsu, emotional and thematically fitting for a game like the Final Fantasy 7 Remake. The new footage above is also the first time we've seen Cloud's female disguise in the remake, which returns from the original game. He's quite embarrassed, even though Aerith remarks that he's "so pretty!"

This is also the first time we've seen Red XIII and Hojo in footage from the Final Fantasy 7 Remake. There's brand new battle footage against mysterious new enemies not present in the original game too, in particular one monstrous enemy with arms sprouting out of the ground.

After being delayed by roughly a month, Final Fantasy 7 Remake now launches worldwide on April 10, 2020. Earlier this year, game director Tetsuya Nomura revealed that part two of the remake is already in production.
