Bishamon is one of Silicon Studio’s products and it’s used to create special effects. This middleware makes fire, smoke, explosions, lightning, and particle blast effects often used for RPG magic attacks. Square Enix used Bishamon for Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals and Gyromancer. Child of Eden from Ubisoft and Q Entertainment is also developed with Bishamon.


And in the future, Nintendo 3DS developers can use Bishamon too. Silicon Studios made a Nintendo 3DS version of Bishamon, which has real-time stereoscopic output. So, one day we may see special effects like these in 3D.
