Square Enix impressed many yesterday with the WITCH CHAPTER 0 [cry] DirectX 12 Final Fantasy-inspired tech demo showcased at Microsoft’s Build 2015 conference in San Francisco.

Interestingly, it’s not the last time you hear about it.

It'll be interesting if MS and Square are developing something behind the scenes together specifically for DX12.

Please be excited?


I always wonder why SE seems to announce that it's going to announce or talk about something more than they actually announce or talk about something.

SE and MS do work together quite often. I mean..ROTTR, those JRPG's back on the 360, PC engine development, etc.

could be a new type of deal, api exclusivity

Eonjay1294d ago

What kind of deal would be.

bleedsoe9mm1294d ago (Edited 1294d ago )

might be really happy with the TR partnership and maybe another new exclusive ip in the works . tokyo build conference would be a great place to announce it .

api exclusivity is 100% against the philosophy of both Microsoft (today) and direct x 12. doesn't even make sense. they need wide scale adoption as fast as possible, not deals with square enix.

Huh? I don't think you understood what he was saying.

He means, the game would be DX12/Windows 10 exclusive. Since PS4 doesn't use that API, it wouldn't be shutting out anyone.

On topic, if the game is a new IP, it could be exclusive to Windows 10. But if it's FFXVI, not a chance in hell it goes MS exclusive.

I was responding to the post about api exclusivity. look up.

This looked like a really interesting world. Here's hoping for a new JRPG IP from the former kings.

Isn't the biggest problem with Square recently been that they've been focusing on graphics over anything else? This doesn't seem like such a good thing to me in that context.

OldDude1294d ago

I don't know about that but you just described Sony's whole philosophy this generation. I think they are the most guilty of it.

its_JEFF1294d ago

If you're referring to the Order 1886, RaD isn't owned by Sony. The whole graphics this is something that they were "lucky" enough to stumble upon being an "important" thing to some consumers when choosing a next gen system.

If you don't think these companies want their games to look the best that they can, then you're a little delusional. Consumers always see a game first, so the game has to look good enough to get them to bite.

If you're looking to pit "graphics" as a philosophy on then you should be looking at PC's. But, then again you buy a PC cause you want to be pushing the highest fidelity... and also you can afford it of course.

The Demo they showed was great. I think PC guys will finally get the performance, from their rig, that they've paid for. Now their $1000 PC will actually perform like one. No more just higher resolution or higher frame rate. It'll be more Polygons, bigger areas, more effects. Kinda has me thinking about putting together a PC...

I believe the point of this is to prove that high quality CG video can be rendered in real time. This technology might mean more to graphics pros than gamers.

rainslacker1294d ago (Edited 1294d ago )

They're focusing more on mobile than they are on graphics. They've always been ahead of the curve with graphics. Even on the NES/SNES.

I know it's not popular opinion around here, but their games, while having great graphics, still manage to have strong game play elements.

This is Agni's philosophy. Why are people having so much trouble with this?
