New Final Fantasy XIII-2 screens are for moogle lovers

Moogles are magical. Moogles makes everything better. Final Fantasy XIII-2 has moogles. Ipso facto, these new screens prove that FFXIII-2 will be better and more magical than its predecessor. As we saw in our earlier look at FFXIII-2, a charming moogle named Mog joins Serah and her party to lend a hand in their quest. But what does Mog do, you ask? Lots of things!

Above: Throw him at hard-to-reach treasure chests

Above: Kupo, indeed

Above: Mog transforms into Serah's crossbow/sword

Above: Mog can also find hidden items and acts as a guide

Above: "Girl, that was the last game! Don't even think about trying to sell me for a premium"

Above: 3:30 is officially moogle magic time

    @Stiltzkin So Kupo is like their smurfing smurf of a smurfphrase? I think the only problem I have with new Mog is the shiny crystal on his head, instead of a bobble. Other than that, awesome.

    @ThatGuyFromTV It's a multi-purpose word. Can't say I like the design of the moogle though. It's so featureless and just...meh...kupo.

    Preemptive strike? Geez, way to go, SE....
  • Letter11 - August 13, 2011 1:23 a.m.

    Yay for moogles, kupo!
  • Oujisama - August 12, 2011 11:52 p.m.

    Geez, Serah

    A moogle, huh? It really seems like SE is trying to coax more people into buying XIII-2 by making it much more akin to other games in the series. Not that I am complaining one bit though. I want to see several different parties of moogles at one point in this game, like in the beginning of VI. That would be so sweet.

    I don't care about the Moogles, but those screens of Serah... I'm starting to think that Serah will be to me in FFXIII-2 what Vanille was to me in FFXIII: the best character. Period. (Did that sentence make sense?)

    But would you trust him as far as you can throw him? Shifty bastard, Try and throw me through the air and see what happens! @g4m3rk1dd If she starts eating, see what happens.

    I was looking forward to this game before the announcement of a moogle partner. Now im considering day 1 purchase. I also hope theres some sort of bonus given to people who have FF13 saved data on their PS3.

    @Errrrbo what are you talking about FF XIII sucked yea it lacked the final Fantsy charm and you couldnt back track but it had the best battle sysetem in FF history and the story was very good and it drawed me in you probley didnt beat it which you should and all i can say is i really enjoyed the game
  • g4m3rk1dd - August 12, 2011 8:15 p.m.

    good to see that there is still no news on Snow and co. D: also good to see that Serah is still anorexic...

    @errrrbo If I'm to believe what the hype is saying, this'll be to FFXIII what Assassin's Creed 2 was to Assassin's Creed 1 - AC1 was basically just a template for AC2, and AC2 expanded on it so ridiculously thoroughly that it makes the first look like a training run. I like FFXIII, flawed as it was (and it was quite flawed in a few aspects). Or it could be just hype and nothing else. Hard to tell.

    Can't wait to play "Kick the Moogle" and launch the furry little bugger across the map to find treasure chests. Fetch boy!
  • ThatGuyFromTV - August 12, 2011 7:04 p.m.

    I've never been clear on this, is "kupo" a tourettes-like reflex thing that Moogles say, or do they say it to address other people? I can't tell
  • Errrrbo - August 12, 2011 7:01 p.m.

    Hopefully this game doesn't suck as much as Final Fantasy XIII.
  • Blasto - August 12, 2011 6:40 p.m.

    Moogles turning into swords?! Shut up and take my gil, kupo.
