LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 5, 1997--

Huge Price Reductions and Live Demonstration of Long-Awaited

"Final Fantasy VII" Also Highlight Show

On Wednesday, at Siggraph '97, Nichimen Graphics Inc. announced the first Windows NT port of its popular N-World integrated software suite, for the creation of 3-D graphics and animation targeted at the game-development and interactive-entertainment industries.

N-World is the market leader, having enjoyed wide success running on the Silicon Graphics UNIX workstations.

In addition, N-World will be demonstrated at the booths of key Nichimen Graphics strategic partners: Intergraph (No. 439), AccelGraphics (No. 561) and Mitsubishi (No. 917).

The company also announced a major 40 percent price reduction on N-World, slashing the cost from $16,995 to $9,995. The Fast Track suite, consisting of N-Geometry, N-Paint 2D and 3D, and Export (DirectX, VRML 2.0), has been reduced from $6,495 to $4,995 for two weeks as a Siggraph "5plus5" show special.

N-World contains the most advanced polygonal modeling and animation software available today. It consists of 2-D and 3-D painting and texturing tools, material editor, photo-realistic render and artist's preview tools used to create some of the world's best-selling interactive games -- including "Super Mario 64," "Spider," "Enemy Zero" and "Beast Wars."

It was also used extensively by Square to make the much- anticipated "Final Fantasy VII.'

As part of Nichimen's participation at Siggraph '97, Kazuyuki Hashimoto, the creative director of "Final Fantasy VII," will showcase N-World during a key presentation in SGI's booth (No. 1139/1339) by illustrating how the game was made, from concept to modeling to game play.

Fast Track is the premier real-time 3-D graphics content- creation software for the Silicon Graphics and NT workstations. It consists of N-GEOMETRY, N-PAINT (2D and 3D),color reduction, texturing and export to VRML and DirectX.

Nichimen's software has also been fully certified on the Intergraph TD-200, TD-225 and TDZ-410. Support for the following boards is planned for this quarter: 3Dlabs GLINT 500TX and 500MX; ELSA Gloria-L/MX; Mitsubishi 3D Pro; AccelGraphics Eclipse and MX; Diamond FireGL 100; and Oxygen 202.
