GDC 2008: Square-Enix Announces Crystal Tools
Taku Murata, general manager of Square-Enix’s research and development division announced the cross-platform engine Crystal Tools.
Crystal Tools was formerly known as the White Engine which is being used for games like Final Fantasy XIII and Final Fantasy Versus XIII. While this engine was known for being designed exclusively for the PS3 it actually was built to design for the Xbox 360 and PC as well.
Murata confirmed that a version of Crystal Tools will support the Wii in the future. A new MMO that Square-Enix is working on willl also use Crystal Tools.
Final Fantasy XIII and Versus shows just what Crystal Tools can put out. I can’t wait to see what else they have in store to use with this engine.
