Square Enix has shown its latest engine in action during an after-hours E3 2012 event, and it looks freaking amazing.

The tech demo the company showed is titled “Agni’s Philosophy,” and it runs in real-time. Seriously, you have to see it to believe it, so go do just that right now, in glorious 1080p.

The new Luminous Engine is meant for creating “next-generation quality games”, so don’t expect to see anything like this on the 360 or PS3.

Just a little warning: this tech demo is based in the Final Fantasy world, but that does not mean it’s from an actual upcoming Final Fantasy game.
