Yeah it was on a FF7 subreddit (surprisingly cos I thought people there would be vv strong in favour of changing nothing). The thought process was, this game is gonna be totally different, different fighting style, very different feel to the game, therefore the original music won't fit that new style anymore.
They are changing the soundtrack!?
To be honest, I don't recall much about the soundtrack, but I'm sure I would recognize some of the tunes.
While I knew they were redoing
the entire game, and would tweak a few things (graphics, animations, cut-scenes, controls and interface would be remade to more modern standers, of course), I expected the music to just be re-recorded with minor adjustments.
Final Fantasy VII in names only, then?
