Square Enix has unveiled the theme song for the Final Fantasy VII Remake in a new trailer. They also put out a video with behind the scenes interviews of the creators (Yosh and Nobuo Uematsu) on the recording of the theme song. The game itself will be launching for the PlayStation 4 game console on April 10th, 2020. The full soundtrack for the game will also be available sometime early this summer according to the press release. Here is the new trailer featuring the theme song:

 

The new theme song trailer provides new glimpses of Final Fantasy VII Remake’s characters and the formidable bosses that lay in wait. Returning fans may notice that the trailer also features some memorable moments from the original that the developers have reimagined in the remake. Final Fantasy VII Remake aims to take players deeper into this world than ever. It features a powerful story, while combining command-based and real-time action in its combat system.

The press release also says that fans will get to experience music from the game, including the theme song, live at the Orchestra World Tour in over 10 different cities. The first one will be in Las Angeles in June, and will feature music from the game’s soundtrack performed by the orchestra and a full chorus. They will be conducted by Arnie Roth, who is also known for having worked on Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY. Here is the creator interviews video, which gives a behind the scenes view of the recording of the theme music in the new trailer:

 

The press release also mentions that those who pre-order any version of the game from the Square Enix store will receive an exclusive Final Fantasy VII Remake lanyard. They will also be entered for a chance at winning a limited-edition Sephiroth or Cloud Strife Chronograph watch. As always, you can find out more about the game at the official website.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called Pre-Computer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode (a bare-bones version of BASIC) which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer, which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the Unity 3D game engine (a powerful and easy-to-use engine) and learning 3D modelling in Blender.

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
