Tokyo, Japan, (September 13, 2016) - Middleware and game development company, Silicon Studio, announced it will be participating in "Tokyo Game Show 2016" (also referred to as "TGS2016"), taking place between September 15th and 18th at Makuhari Messe in Chiba. The corporate booth will be exhibiting the latest version of the "Mizuchi" real-time rendering tech demo "YURI", and the playable demo of the "Square Enix Co., Ltd." title "Figureheads", highlighting the in-game usage of the "YEBIS" post effects middleware.
Along with the playable demo of the "Square Enix Co., Ltd." title "Figureheads" and other tech demos of both YEBIS and Mizuchi, the main feature will be the latest version of the Mizuchi real-time character representation demo "YURI", previously shown at CEDEC2016 (Official Website https://cedec.cesa.or.jp/2016/). The latest version of the demo elegantly represents YURI in hyper 3D photo-realistic quality, as she sits relaxing and overlooking the garden of a traditional Japanese house, as the autumn leaves flutter in the wind.
(This demo is a work in progress and is planned to be gradually updated and upgraded to further exhibit the power of Mizuchi, including VR capability.)
