An entry on DER BLOG, the official blog for Dog Ear Records, officially confirms Nobuo Uematsu's return to compose the score for Final Fantasy XIV. DER BLOG rejoices that Nobuo Uematsu will not only be involved, but he is set to be compose every single track for the new MMO, something he has not done for the venerable series in over 10 years, although he had a hand in FFIX and FFXI.
In case anyone is around HMV Records in Shinjuku come late June, Uematsu is scheduled to have a meet & greet on the 28th where he will sign autographs. However, the event is for the soundtrack to Guin Saga, which is an anime series, so don't expect any FFXIV tidbits there. :)
Anxious Uematsu fans can feel free to discuss his triumphant return to the series in this thread.
*Dog Ear Records is Nobuo Uemtasu's own video game music company.
