See and Hear the FFXVI Moogle for the First Time

Square Enix decided to show off how an iconic mascot character will look in its new Final Fantasy game. On December 17, 2022, the company shared a video clip of a Moogle in FFXVI. This is a brief video of the familiar face. We don’t get to see how Clive reacts to it. However, we do get to see it, hear it, and watch its animation for the first time.

The FFXVI Moogle is fairly traditional. It features a brown nose, purple wings, and an orange pom-pom on its head. Unlike past depictions, the pom-pom here isn’t furry. Rather, it seems more like a smooth, spherical orb atop its antenna.

We already knew that people would get to see a Moogle or two in FFXVI. Creative Director Kazutoyo Maehiro confirmed it in an interview. However, at the same time he emphasized the goal of ensuring the creatures and monsters appearing in the game wouldn’t be “overly comical.”

Final Fantasy XVI will release on the PlayStation 5 on June 23, 2022. It will be exclusive to the console for about six months. After that, it could come to other platforms.
