When will video games look this good?

Bravely Default dev releases next-gen tech demo - and it looks stunning.

Silicon Studio, the Japanese developer of Bravely Default and 3D Dot Game Heroes, has released a new video showing off its next generation rendering engine - and it provides us with a glimpse of what games may look like in the future.

The real-time technical demo preview highlights Silicon Studio's advanced graphics work, and acts as a call to arms for potential staff. While the developer has worked with Square Enix on Bravely Default, it's also a middleware creator, and so specialises in real-time graphical techniques like those showcased in the video.

Nintendo 3DS game Bravely Default was a critical and commercial success - so much so that it caused publisher Square Enix to rethink its strategy when it comes to making games.
