Square Enix published a new trailer for Final Fantasy 7 Remake, revealing the theme song of the game, along with with many iconic moments and returning faces from the original PS1 classic.
The trailer first depicts Cloud and Tifa in their childhood, with Cloud mentioning his dream to go to Midgard and become a Solider like Sephiroth. We next see Cloud together with Barret, Tifa, and Aerith, and what seems to be a vision of Sephiroth triggered by Cloud’s proximity with Mako reactors. Next, we get glimpses of some of the main faces of Shinra for the first time in the Remake, including Scarlet and Reeve. Next, we can see Cloud crossdressing, Red XIII’s first meeting with the party, and a Jenova boss battle. The trailer ends with Aerith cryptically mentioning how Shinra isn’t their true enemy, implying the phantom-like, Nomura-esque Guardian of Fate things are.
The Final Fantasy 7 Remake theme song is titled Hollow. The song was composed by Nobuo Uematsu. The vocals are by Yosh (Survive Said The Prophet). The lyrics are by Final Fantasy 7 Remake scenarist Kazushige Nojima, and they were translated by Ben Sabin and John Crow.
