Final Fantasy Versus XIII and Final Fantasy X HD may be completely off the radar at the moment, but Square-Enix has made no secret of the fact that they are well already underway on Final Fantasy development for the Xbox 720 and Sony PS4 consoles. The company has released further teases of their next-gen Luminous Engine, showing the latest stage of progress for the Agni’s Philosophy tech demo.
If you watched E3 2012, you would have seen the very first glimpse of the Luminous Engine in action. At the time we asked which was better between this next-gen engine and Epic’s next-gen Unreal Engine 4 demonstration, with a lot of you telling us that you liked the technology from Square-Enix better.
The developer is known for their amazing graphics, and it’s clear to see that the first Final Fantasy game to show up on next-gen consoles if going to be very special indeed. The level of detail is frankly amazing, as you’ll see in these three close up clips that we have to show you – examining some of the facial tech that Square-Enix has at their disposal.
While it’s great to see Square-Enix are already planning for next-gen, it’s hard not to think of the delays that have met previous games in the series and the potential wait until the next-gen Final Fantasy game is actually ready for release. It’s borderline ridiculous what has happened with Final Fantasy Versus XIII and the same pattern appears to be happening with the FFX HD remake as well.
Take a look at their 2013 Luminous Engine update below and let us know your thoughts on progress so far. Are you a bit worried about the infamous delays that continues to plague their products?
