In what is definitely not a coincidence, Final Fantasy VII Remake’s OST is spread across seven disks — well, technically eight if you include the single bonus disk. It’s also priced at a 7,777 Yen in Japan and $77.77 in the US, and the first limited run launches on May 27… Square Enix’s marketing gurus are earning their money, apparently.
The announcement comes by way of a Tweet from the official Final Fantasy VII Remake Twitter account:
The #FinalFantasy VII Remake Original Soundtrack spans seven CDs and features “Hollow”, the brand-new theme song from composer Nobuo Uematsu! 🎶
📅 The first-run limited edition is out on May 27, 2020. #FF7R

As you can see above, the headline title is longtime Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu’s Hollow, which is the first Final Fantasy VII tune to feature vocals.
If you’ve got the best of $100 to burn on an album then pre-orders are live here.

Final Fantasy VII Remake’s first game will launch on PS4 on April 10, 2020.
