Yoshinori Kitase confirms Nobuo Uematsu is involved with the Final Fantasy VII Remake

Yoshinori Kitase, the producer of Final Fantasy VII Remake, head of Business Division 1 and now a member of Square Enix's board has revealed in an interview that Final Fantasy VII's composer Nobuo Uematsu is in fact involved with the remake.

Uematsu previously said back in 2015 that he was not working on the remake so either this has changed or Uematsu was being tight lipped like Square Enix is generally is.

It's currently unknown how involved he is, but in the past he supervised the soundtracks in the remakes of Final Fantasy II, Final Fantasy III and Final Fantasy IV along with the HD remaster of Final Fantasy X so it would seem the most likely.

It's also possible he might compose the theme song, something he has also done previously in the remakes of Final Fantasy III and Final Fantasy IV along with the original Final Fantasy XII.

The most likely composer for the bulk of the soundtrack remains Yoko Shimomura in my opinion due to the fact she has always composed games directed by Tetsuya Nomura and because she received a special thanks credit in Mobius Final Fantasy for helping with an event, most likely the Final Fantasy VII Remake event.
