Square Enix: “something different” for Agni’s Philosophy on “different platforms” in June next year

Something “different” around Agni’s Philosophy, Square Enix’s next generation, Luminous Studio-based tech demo, will be revealed around June of next year, Square Enix worldwide technology director Julien Merceron has teased. And whatever it is, it will run on “different platforms.” (Final Fantasy XV, Square Enix, Tech)

Bah, release and hype versus before Hyping FF15
Snookies12  +   912d ago
Agreed, for how ambitious FFVSXIII seems to be, you'd think they could show little bits of info at least... Yet we get nothing for years...

No more denying it, the new PlayStation and Xbox are being announced next year
Snookies12  +   912d ago
@Abash - Or they could mean it's coming to Wii U. We might hear something about them next year, but it seems like they're saying this game (whatever it is) is going to released next year on different platforms. I doubt the next Xbox and PS are coming out by that time if we haven't seen anything yet.

Though I could be wrong, we'll have to wait and see I suppose.

It a tech demo. It most likely going to be shown at MS E3 press conference or sony conference.

Second, I don't think this game is going to be for the Wii U. The Luminous engine has not been confirmed to work on the WiiU.

This just in VSXIII turned into FFXV LOL

It can't be on the Wii U. The graphics for this tech demo is basically CGI in real time. It is amazing and nothing but the strongest can handle it. So that would be PC, PS4 and maybe 720.
Snookies12  +   912d ago
Yeah, the Wii U thing was just a shot in the dark guess lol.
Jinkies  +   912d ago
I'd rather they just make Versus FF15 at this point, obviously keep it an exclusive because they don't sell that well on the 360 anyway.

Then start FF16 for next gen...AS A SOLO GAME, non of this Fabula Nova Crystallis series crap.

true is that Xbox's DVD9 would only hold back the game.
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   912d ago
So I guess they mean the PS4, The next XBox, and maybe the Wii U.

“there will indeed be something different around Agni’s Philosophy, which will be presented on, perhaps, different platforms than those which have been used before”

Lemme guess , Something for .. "THE Wii U"

As much as I would like to see something amazing on the Wii U, it doesn't have near the specs required to run a game based on that engine. The tech was running on a PC with 16GB of RAM and a $400+ graphics card.

Even if they put the game on the Wii U, it's just not going to be to the same scale.

Maybe this means they will release final fantasy games for the pc so we can see what this engine can really do.....no wait scratch that i forgot their Japanese.
LordMe  +   912d ago
How much you wanna bet they push this before vsXIII?

as far as Microsoft is concerned this is most definitely the E3 that we will see the next xbox consoles. the xbox360 is going to be 8 years old in 2013 and there are absolutely no first or third party titles of any relevance coming out after june of next year. just go to gamestop's coming soon page for xbox360 games and nothing is planned after june, it appears that GTA V is about the last of the core titles announced last year for release. with the ps3 however, it seems to still have another year of core titles coming out which leads me to believe we may or may not see an announcement of the next plasystation console. but who knows about square enix...that company has really turned into a bunch of ass-clowns this generation.

link to gamestop's coming soon for xbox360-->

and yes Anarchy Reigns is scheduled for a 1/8/2013 release but that's hardly a core title or a game that extends the xbox360 longevity.

Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes appears to be coming out in September and Rainbow 6 Patriots is supposed to also come out in 2013 and we have near zero info on that. But I still think this is the E3 that will make up for the past few years of disappointment.
vortis  +   912d ago
If Kojima has any dignity he will not put something as amazing as Ground Zeroes on current-gen consoles.

I want to see what they can do with their tech, I'd hate to see it gimped to accommodate today's consoles. A launch title for PS4/Xbox 720 would be cool. Otherwise they're gonna have to make a ton of concessions to get the game to run on 8 year old tech.
hope i can get it on pc then. I am willing to spend thew extra cash to play beyond 1080p.

good luck with that.

Agnis tech demo requires close to 3Teraflops to run. The demo ran on a GTX 680.

AMD Sea Islands 8XXX series GPU's run alot cooler and draw less power than the 7XXX series GPU's.

If we get Sea Islands in either or both next gen consoles, we're gonna be in for some serious eye candy.

I gotta admit that I wouldn't be that surprised if Versus XIII is now a PS4 title. Seems like they're trying to aim for perfection with this game
