Booted up the PS4 this afternoon with Grace and Louie, to play a little FFXV and got the newest update downloaded. To my surprise, SquareEnix put out a nice little present in this update! “The Moogle Chocobo Festival!”
Unlocked once you reach Altissia, the festival transforms the already amazing city into a full-on carnival…which brought a smile to my face and got Grace all excited to see all of the Chocobos. Which is kinda cool when your 4-year old daughter says, “Look at all the Chocobos, SOO CUTE, AWWW!” FYI, she likes “playing” FFXV, even though I help her out. (Usually, she’s just moving the player around, riding on chocobos and sitting through the car rides. Any battles she gets into, the AI usually handles, but hey she doesn’t know that.)
As for the carnival, it’s a nice little distraction and gives you an excuse to run around ever inch of Altissia. There are plenty of minigames like Whack-a-Cactuar and turret minigame to keep you distracted. They have a slight challenge but you should be able to complete the side quest in an hour or two.
