Final Fantasy VII Remake is Unreal

0

Life is strange

Square Enix is known for using its own, internally developed tech for Final Fantasy games. The White Engine, later known as Crystal Tools, seems to be one of the reasons Final Fantasy XIII was delayed for so long and Final Fantasy XIII Versus is coming out 10 years later as Final Fantasy XV. But Final Fantasy XV uses Square's proprietary next-gen engine, Luminous, the same engine that produced this impressive tech demo.

And yet with the hotly anticipated Final Fantasy VII Remake, Square Enix is using the popular Unreal Engine 4, Epic boasted today following the first wider look at gameplay. Square earlier confirmed Final Fantasy VII Remake would not run on Luminous and Kingdom Hearts 3 recently made the switch to Unreal 4, too.

"We realize how special Final Fantasy VII is to fans, and we place our trust in Unreal Engine 4 technology and tools to help deliver this long-awaited remake, crafted for modern platforms," Square's Yoshinori Kitase said. "Working with the team at Epic and having their support throughout this process was invaluable and we’re excited to bring the product of that collaboration to long-time fans and newcomers to the series."
