Final Fantasy composer's first e-book coming soon

Nobuo Uematsu branches out

Final Fantasy series composer Nobuo Uematsu is an amazing man. He's one of my personal musical heroes and I've had the pleasure of chatting with him a few times. Aside from being a talented composer, he also makes his own beer!

Uematsu also writes e-books, it seems. His first, "Bilk-0 1946," will be available for purchase on the iTunes Store this August. Pronounced "Buliko," this is a story about a robot created by Dr. Mabuse, a noted AI scientist. As Bilk-0 meets people, he has to deal with feelings and emotions.

This e-book is set to Uematsu's original music, so Final Fantasy fans can expect a treat for the ears. Hiroki Ogawa, the director of Nobuo Uematsu's music label, did the illustrations. I've also met him -- a very kind man. 

Two great people put this book together so it has to be good! Bilk-0 1946 will be available next month from acttil, priced at $9.99. Check back with their site next month. There's also a Facebook page to follow.

Check our gallery out for a few preview images from the e-book.
