"To those who have played the game, to our sound team who took part in the production of the music, and of course to Mr. Nobuo Uematsu, who created the original soundtrack of Final Fantasy VII, thank you very much."
"We are extremely grateful. And I would be very happy if people could play the game once more, while focusing attention on the music. Thank you very much," Kawamori adds.
