Square Enix spent six months planning, six months creating four-minute "Agni's Philosophy" demo running on new Luminous Engine.
This summer, Square Enix showed off a next-generation Final Fantasy tech demo called "Agni's Philosophy," created using the company's proprietary Luminous Studio Engine. Now, it has been revealed that Square Enix spent an entire year creating the four-minute spot.
Kotaku translated a Game Watch report that states Square Enix spent six months planning the "Agni's Philosophy" demo before spending another six months actually developing it.
The Luminous Studio engine is currently in development at Square Enix and is planned to support game consoles, PCs, smartphones, and Web applications.
According to Square Enix, "Agni's Philosophy" is representative of the level of visual quality Square Enix is hoping to achieve with next-generation games. The demo is focused on a magic-wielding heroine name Agni and is set in a near-future world where ancient sorcery and advanced science coexist.
Pretend Exclusive: A 3rd party multiplat, that releases for multiple consoles in the same window, in which all press showings and marketing are catered to only one console. Exclusive console bundles, being the lead platform, as well as timed exclusive/exclusive betas and game content also strengthen the claim. The final effect is that the uninformed gamer will be convinced that the version primarily advertised is the only and/or best place to experience the game.

Ya, with all the projects they have in the works, and are WAY WAY off schedule, their time would have been better spent working on the games themselves. Not spending a teams year on a tech demo. Guess Square is really on their way out, and they're doing all they can to milk shit for all it's worth off their brand name before going completely under.
