Special DVD version of Final Fantasy film planned for PS2.
The producer of the upcoming film Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within has recently announced plans to release two DVD versions of the movie. One will be released as a regular DVD movie, while the other will be designed specifically for the PS2. Square is planning on giving the DVD the ability to manipulate the camera angle as to add effect in the viewing experience.
"There will be two different sets of products," Aida explained. "For the PS2 DVD release, we will do some scenes using real-time rendering, where you will have the interactive ability to change the camera angles. So, you can sort of have your own version of the film, with your own camera positions."
Both DVDs are set for a spring 2002 release, and Square will continue to provide information of the details contained in the special package. Once again, Square has made it a point to reward PS2 owners.
