They're not just about floating about saying "Kupo" anymore. In Final Fantasy XIII-2, many of the game's most important mechanics are Moogle-powered.
I'm not a picky Final Fantasy fan. All I want is a lengthy adventure of some sort and an adorable little floating critter by my side at all times. So I think I'm going to get along fine with Final Fantasy XIII-2 when it hits January 31. I'll while away the hours just wandering about with my little Moogle friend, finding hidden objects, gaining combat bonuses, and just generally having one kupo of a good time.
Man, is it really less than a month away? My thumbs are twitching just thinking about it.
