Nobuo Uematsu Interview

Considered by many to be the best of what he does, Uematsu has composed music for games such as Final Fantasy in the past, and now in a short video, and full interview talks about the music for his upcoming game Blue Dragon. Uematsu also reveals how he became involved with Super Smash Bros. Brawl. An interesting tale indeed, just part of the interview:
"XE: What is your favorite piece of music that you have ever composed?

Uematsu:If I have to pick one, it would be "Kiss Me Goodbye". There is a person who introduced Angela Aki to me, and we went to Square-Enix, and she was playing the piano, and I got a big chill. I was so emotional about the song, and I thought it was going to be a big hit, so that song we made for Final Fantasy XII is a great song."

Check out the full interview, and video below.

One of the best of that era. Great game, great adventure!

Kurisu82d ago

I bought this game a couple of days ago, along with Lost Odyssey, while they're on sale in the Xbox Store. I never had a 360 back in the day so I missed out on these games, so I'm glad that I'll finally be able to try them out soon on my Series S.

raWfodog82d ago

Yep, Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, and Gears of War were my favorite 360 games back when they first released.

Seraphim82d ago

no doubt. To this day it baffles me when this game gets hate. Sure it wasn't as epic as Lost Odyssey, but in it's own right it was a great game.

MrNinosan82d ago

Lost Odyssey is one of the best jrpgs of that era but got killed because it was bought up and released on the "wrong" console.

repsahj82d ago

Is there a chance that Lost Odyssey will be released on PS5? I really want to play it and Blue Dragon, too.

autobotdan82d ago

Both games are owned by Microsoft

andy8582d ago

Great game. The 360 had some really good turn based games back in the day. Absolutely loved Lost Odyssey too. I think they are both Sakaguchi creations.

ZwVw82d ago

Correction. Both Blue Dragon & Lost Odyssey (as well as Infinite Undiscovery) started off as in-house developed projects that went third party after MS killed off their Japanese development studios.

andy8582d ago

Doesn't really have anything to do with what I said though 😂 Sakaguchi wrote them both

Hofstaderman82d ago

This game together with Lost Odyssey, The Last Remenant and Tales of Vesperia convinced me to buy a 360. This game made my 2007 which ended off with mass effect.

CrimsonWing6982d ago

Honestly, a fantastic game, especially if you were a fan of old-school JRPGs. I hate that this genre rarely can come back to these roots.

Did you play Blue Dragon? Whatever the case might be, it deserves to be remembered

Destructoid: I remember where I was when Blue Dragon was announced. Although I already had an Xbox 360 and was ready for it, some folks I knew bought one just for it given who was involved (Nobuo Uematsu, Hironobu Sakaguchi, Akira Toriyama): as Mistwalker and Microsoft Game Studios made a mad dash to put out more games from Japanese studios on the Xbox ecosystem.

Blue dragon was fantastic. Love that game. It was my biggest reason for getting a 360.

gold_drake111d ago

i wanted to play it, but ...
1. its on xbox
and 2. i missed it when it was on gamepass ha.

shinoff2183111d ago

Kind of a shame it's not on gamepass so more people could enjoy it.

gold_drake111d ago

yeh, i missed it by one darn day.

Tacoboto110d ago

It's only $20 on the Xbox Store.
Lost Odyssey is only $25

-Foxtrot111d ago

I thought it was pretty good but I personally I think Lost Odyssey is better

Also, I know a lot of JRPGs are cheesy but damn…this one was amped up to 11.

shinoff2183111d ago

Lost odyssey lost me when I started to realize my grinding to level up wasn't adding up. So I never picked it up again. I really really despise that.

MontyeKristo110d ago

I really enjoyed, at the time, Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey and The Last Remnant.

MrNinosan110d ago

Then you missed out on of of the best jrpgs ever made.
Did you at least reach the point where Jansen qas singing? 🥰
