Square Enix and Sony have announced they will be arranging a game production seminar in Japan this summer. The seminar is targeted for both new and experienced game developers, and during the event they will be learning more about the cutscene production, softwares and techniques the biggest studios of Japan are using at the moment.
As said, Square Enix will be holding their own presentation, which will be focusing on the Final Fantasy XIII saga cutscene production. Yosuke Tanaka, who was in charge of Final Fantasy XIII, XIII-2 and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII cutscenes, will be taking the stage to explain more about the workflow behind the game production.
For now, it seems there aren’t any streams planned for the event, but it’s quite likely the Japanese game press will be making coverage about it. Square Enix × Sony Game Production Seminar will be held in Tokyo on 26th July, 2014.
