If nothing else, the Agni's Philosophy tech demo showcased by Square Enix at E3 2012 confirmed that Final Fantasy's future will be jaw-droppingly gorgeous. A set of new Luminous engine screens, detailing everything from hair dynamics to specular lighting, corroborate this fact and have me positively aching for a PS4 reveal at the PlayStation Meeting on February 20.

The images come courtesy of 4Gamer, who has also compiled a series of Square Enix PowerPoint slides over a multi-part series that breaks down the stunning technology at work. After taking a peep at the images below, drop a comment and tell us if you're impressed by the technology that will almost certainly power next-gen Final Fantasy games.
