In an recent interview, Square Enix’s World Technological Director has mentioned the stunning Agni’s Philosophy, suggesting that we’ll be seeing something more on the technology behind one of gaming’s most impressive demos.
When the demo – which is real time – hit in June everyone assumed it was running on something well beyond what the current generation machines are capable of. Well, it now looks like we’ll be seeing more from it, and it won’t be on a PC.
But first, a reminder:
In the interview, a date is mentioned – June next year (and thus presumably E3) – and an idea of platform. “Something other than PC” is the translation from French, with most assuming this to mean next-gen consoles. We’re told to expect something “different”.
Whilst that’s hardly a stretch, what does take a little leap of faith is what Square Enix are cooking up. Will Agni’s Philosophy end up being more than just a tech demo, or are we just going to see the demo again but with confirmation that it’s running on PS4 or Xbox Next?
It’s not hard to see how this could end up being another Final Fantasy.
