14 Sep 2009 - Confirmed: Nobuo Uematsu Not On FFXIII
Nobuo Uematsu has confirmed to us that he will not contribute to Final Fantasy XIII. He was originally announced as the main theme composer of the game, but people were suspicious after the vocal themes revealed last week were composed by Masashi Hamauzu. According to his producer Hiroki Ogawa, Uematsu decided to give his main theme duties to Hamauzu after he was hired to work on Final Fantasy XIV. Uematsu-san will compose the full score for FFXIV and will be channeling all his energies there.
