Misha Mansoor, one of the guitar players for Periphery, is impressed with the "Final Fantasy VII" trailer. He even wants to contribute a song to the game. After seeing the trailer, he expressed his excitement on social media.

Periphery has put references to Final Fantasy in past albums. On Periphery II: This Time It's Personal, there are two songs called "Muramasa" and "Masamunue"--both of which could be interpreted as references to the popular role-playing series.

Mansoor has even cited Nobuo Uematsu, the primary music composer for the Final Fantasy series.

"I would say video game music has had a very strong influence on my writing," Mansoor told Guitar World in an interview in 2012.

"Nobuo Uematsu, who composed the music to the majority of tiles in the Final Fantasy video game series, is an incredible talent. His sense of melody and use of texture is definitely a big reference point for me."

Periphery's latest double album, Juggernaut, was released in January of this year, and it has sold well--making the Billboard's Top 20 list.

The two albums are sold separately and are subtitled Alpha and Omega, respectively. It was the band's first full-length release since Periphery II.
