With new next generation consoles from Sony, and Microsoft most likely coming next year, you might be wondering what sort of graphics the Ps4, and Xbox 720 will be sporting, well this tech demo of Square Enix’s Luminous Engine shows you just that, while more specifically giving us a glimpse at how beautiful a next generation Final Fantasy title will be.
The graphics on display look even superior to the pre-rendered Advent Children Final Fantasy movie. Definitely exciting stuff, will be interesting to see more realistic high-end graphical juggernaut titles on next-gen hardware (Uncharted, Gears Of War etc)

“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.”
