posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Visual Works, the CG movie production department of game developer Square Enix, is the subject of an exhibition currently being held at the Ooka Makoto Kotoba Museum in Mishima, Shizuoka. The game developer began streaming an introduction film for the exhibit on Tuesday to give a taste of what visitors can see.
The exhibit opened on March 26 and will run until August 31. Visitors get the opportunity to be up close and personal with Visual Works' creations through never before seen, high-quality prints, short documentaries that go behind the scenes of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIV and Dragon Quest and commercials created by Tetsuya Nomura for the 2014 Hatsune Miku Expo.
Square Enix is also displaying full-size replicas of items and armor from its games, from Cloud's Buster Sword to Genesis' outfit from Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core.
Visual Works employees will be on hand on select days throughout the exhibition for workshops showcasing the company's motion-capture process. There is also a hands-on Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality area to test out and original goods for sale.
