E3 – Square Enix Reveals Next-Gen Final Fantasy Tech Demo
Square Enix introduced its next-generation engine Luminous Studio today with a Final Fantasy-inspired tech demo called Agni’s Philosophy.
The engine, in development internally at Square Enix, is able to depict high-quality, “real time computer graphics,” at the same level as “pre-rendered computer graphics,” according to Square. Characters are detailed to the point where they express “life-like humanity,” and are showcased through their “rich facial expressions, subtleties of their pupils and hair, and their brilliantly flowing garments.”
Agni’s Philosophy depicts a “life-changing encounter” for Agni, the tech demo’s protagonist, in near-futuristic world “where ancient magic and advanced science coexist.”
