Final Fantasy VII Remake’s latest OST set will include four CDs and a host of other goodies, including new artwork from Tetsuya Nomura.

As revealed by the official Square Enix music account Final Fantasy VII Remake OST Plus will launch December 23rd in Japan. The OST set, which is four CDs total, will include cutscenes, BGM, and other features that wasn’t in the first one. The cover art is by Tetsuya Nomura and other brand new illustrations are included in the set. First print copies will have a mini booklet as well:

You can preorder the OST here. And for more goodies, a new guidebook will be launching in Japan, titled the Final Fantasy VII Remake Material Ultimania. The book is coming on October 29th, and will include artwork, CG artwork, planning documents, storyboards, liner notes for the music, interviews with the voice actors, and more.

Square Enix announced Final Fantasy VII Remake now shipped over five million copies worldwide, digitally and physically. The game is also now the highest selling digital game Square Enix ever developed on a PlayStation platform.

The director of Remake Tetsuya Nomura was the one to propose the original Final Fantasy VII’s most shocking moment. As previously revealed, Final Fantasy VII Remake has many new elements to it and Scenarist Kazushige Nojima even explains how he rewrote Cloud for the remake. We also translated comments from Nojima about how Final Fantasy VII influenced Final Fantasy VIII. In an interview posted through Square Enix, Co-Director Naoki Hamaguchi and Producer Yoshinori Kitase talk about their reasoning behind making some bold changes for the remake of such a beloved game — namely why Sephiroth was introduced so early in the game.

We also translated the short film made to promote the remake. Square Enix, meanwhile, is currently working on the second and possibly last episode. Square Enix released a trailer revealing the theme song of the game called Hollow, along with with many iconic moments and returning faces from the original PS1 classic.

Final Fantasy VII Remake finally released on April 10th after a one month delay and you can purchase the game from Amazon here. Check out our extremely comprehensive review of the title here. I wrote a pretty comprehensive beginner’s guide for players just starting out (including some handy Materia and weapon builds for Tifa) but you can also check out this incredibly intricate and damaging combo to see why proper character builds matter in Remake.
