At E3 this week Square Enix has unveiled footage of its new Luminous Engine, which it has created for “next generation quality games”. The video demonstration after the break called Agni’s Philosophy, provides a glimpse of the next generation Luminous Engine, running at real time. Watch the video after the jump to see it in action.
But remember this is an game engine demonstration not a relief game, but shows a glimpse of what might be available in next generation consoles. Square Enix explains:
“AGNI’S PHILOSOPHY (herein referred to as the demo video) was produced with LUMINOUS STUDIO, Square Enix’s game production environment (engine) for creating next generation quality games. The LUMINOUS STUDIO engine is currently in development internally at Square Enix.
Thanks to the LUMINOUS STUDIO engine, the demo video can depict high quality “real time computer graphics” (*1) at the same level as “pre-rendered computer graphics” (*2). The fine details of the characters, who express life-like humanity, are showcased through their rich facial expressions, subtleties of their pupils and hair, and their brilliantly flowing garments. The characters, along with the vibrant monsters, transport the viewer into the world created by the LUMINOUS STUDIO engine.
Furthermore, the demo video production was created through the lens of the FINAL FANTASY series, where ancient magic and advanced science coexist in a near-futuristic world. The video depicts a life-changing encounter for our heroine, the magic-wielding protagonist Agni.”
