Final Fantasy XVI Shares First Look at Moogles


    Square Enix previously confirmed the existence of Moogles in Final Fantasy XVI, but the popular mascot remained elusive for most of 2022. To celebrate the Final Fantasy 35th anniversary, Square Enix shared a first look into Moogles in Final Fantasy XVI.

    Moogles make their triumphant return in Final Fantasy XVI with the signature design seen in games such as Final Fantasy IX and Final Fantasy XIV. Players can expect these creatures all across the world of Final Fantasy XVI, and some may even have their own quests to offer.

    Check out the Moogle’s design below via Square Enix:

    Here’s an overview of the upcoming Final Fantasy title:

    The sun is setting upon the land of Valisthea.

    For centuries, people have flocked to her Mothercrystals to partake of their blessing—the abundant aether that fuels the magicks they rely upon in their everyday lives. But as the aether begins to fade and the lifeless deadlands spread ever further, so too does the struggle over the final flickers of the Mothers’ light grow ever more fierce. Bloody battle rages across the realm, rival nations sending their ultimate weapons against each other: the Dominants. Men and women within whom sleep the world-shattering power of an Eikon.

    There are few in Valisthea whose lives have not been touched by this war for the crystals’ blessing, and Clive Rosfield, firstborn son of the Archduke of Rosaria, is no exception. Unlike most, however, the vicissitudes of fate are to reveal to him the dark truth that lies at the heart of his world, and lead him on a mission to destroy those selfsame Mothercrystals the rest of the realm hold sacred.

    The legacy of the crystals has shaped mankind’s destiny for long enough.

    Lastly, Final Fantasy XVI launches June 22, 2023 for PlayStation 5 worldwide.
