Square Enix Merges Visual Works Division and Image Arts Division to form Square Enix Image Studio Division



Combining Visual Works Division and Image Arts Division to newly form Square Enix Image Studio Division

Square Enix is newly establishing Square Enix Image Studio Division today through the integration of its Visual Works Division and Image Arts Division.

The Visual Works Division has created pre-rendered movies for many of the Company's game titles. The Image Arts Division, whose core staff includes members from the team that created the movie Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, has meanwhile engaged in research and development into high-end visual expression with a focus on real-time graphics.

By fusing the technologies and attributes of the two divisions into the Square Enix Image Studio Division, the Company aims to become faster at its research and development efforts into next-generation visual expression and at incorporating the results of those efforts into actual content. It thereby hopes to provide its customers with an even higher quality of experience.
