How Final Fantasy VII Remake’s Award-Winning Soundtrack Was Made
Last year, Final Fantasy VII Remake taught us what the gold standard for remakes could be. Sure, it adds stuff, but it reinterpreted the feeling of the original game in a way that makes it feel like a true modern title. One of the most praised aspects is the music, recreating the works of Nobuo Uematsu from 1997. And now, the game’s soundtrack has received a particular high honour, being awarded Soundtrack Album of the Year at the Japan Gold Disc Award. This is usually an award given to Western films or anime, but this time, for the first time since Persona 4 Golden’s soundtrack in 2013, it’s gone to a video game.
