Nobuo Uematsu, known for his work composing Square Enix’s Final Fantasy franchise, is working on two new games. Previously, it was known Uematsu was at work on Level-5’s Fantasy Life, as well as rehearsing with his personal band, the Earthbound Papas.

Speaking to, Uematsu said he currently had two unannounced projects in the works.

“Right now, I am working on Level-5’s Fantasy Life and I hope to be able to finish my work within a month”, Uematsu told the site. “Also, there is one new game, that hasn’t been announced yet and there is another secret game. Besides [that], I am trying to have as many rehearsals with my band Earthbound Papas as possible.”

Nobuo Uematsu is a freelance Japanese video game music composer. His most recent works include The Last Story for Wii and Lord of Arcana for PSP.

    It was such an honor meeting him at Distant Worlds Final Fantasy, i hope to meet him again! ;D

  • I have purposely not listened to any of the music from The Last Story until the game is actually in my hands. I know however, that being Uematsu, it will be amazing. Anyone got any ideas to what the secret project might be? I can’t think of anything at the moment which might have been hinted at previously.

    Also, great picture of Uematsu-san and his dog!

      I was about to do the same when I heard Uematsu was the composer. But then I heard the full version of “The Last Story OST/Kanan’s Theme” and I went straight to look for more because the man is a god-given gift to composing music. Now if only I had the actual game in my hands.

      I am really looking forward to his works. Two of them!
