I'd like to hear Uematsu's take on this question, it would be a good one for a future interview.

We know he is perfectly capable of small ensemble arrangements. I would be very satisfied with a new Uematsu soundtrack he 100% arranged, in the style of his self-arranged 90s work: FF3 Eternal Legend of the Wind, FF5 Dear Friends, and especially Phantasmagoria. All are synth keyboard (which he performed himself) plus a small ensemble of performers (flute, oboe, etc.) Phantasmagoria holds up quite well today, and showcases his signature melodic style.
