The second game in the Final Fantasy VII remake trilogy, Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth, was launched to near-universal praise from critics and players alike. Actually, it is only acclaimed from critics compiled by Metacritic; the user reviews are similar (but with some mixed and negative added into the mix). Here at DDNet, Matt gave the game 4.5 stars in his review. But what we haven’t done yet here is talk about an integral part of the game – the music! Seriously. Not once. With the Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Original Soundtrack launching next month, this is the perfect time to talk about it. As an added bonus, there are a handful of songs already available for streaming.

The Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Original Soundtrack is seven discs long – yes, you read that right – and includes 175 tracks from the game. Composed by Mitsuto Suzuki and Masashi Hamauzu (Monomusik Inc.), with original music by Nobuo Uematsu, the soundtrack features genres and rhythms described as being “as fast and vibrant as the game’s world.” Relive the adventure with tracks from sweeping orchestral battle themes with exhilarating vocals to a synthpop propaganda song starring a beagle.'s Discord banner.

“One of the most thrilling parts of composing for Final Fantasy VII Rebirth was aligning the music to the backstory, direction, and story progression of a moment, establishing a sonic foundation on which the entire development team could build an unforgettable scene,” said Suzuki through a press release. “There are sections that dig deeper into music from the original game, and sections that were newly crafted for this title. I hope players will find delight in the musical elements and discoveries to be made.”

The soundtrack comes in two physical editions. The standard soundtrack includes, well, the soundtrack. The ~ Special edit version ~ (as seen below) is physically much, much fancier; it also includes a bonus CD of mini-game music. The standard edition is readily available for pre-order, but it might be more difficult to get your hands on the ~ Special edit version ~ since it’s already sold out via Square Enix’s North American store.

A preview album has been released for streaming on platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon Music. The Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Original Soundtrack (Preview Version) features five songs that will be included with the soundtrack’s full lauch: Toward Mt. Nibel, Main Theme of FFVII – Battle Edit, With Heavy Heart – A Seabreeze Stroll, Rufus’s Welcoming Ceremony – Seventh, Ten-Hut!, and Listen to the Cries of the Planet – Battle Edit.

Both versions of the Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Original Soundtrack will be released by Square Enix on April 10, physically and digitally. Final Fantasy VII Rebirth (the game) is available now for PlayStation 5.
