Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates Moogle Paint Contest Begins!


One of the clever little side attractions found in Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates (which I just finished up and will have a review up for soon) is the Moogle painting and trading feature, but no longer is it just going to be a cute mode to tool around with on the side. Well, at least for the next month that is. As of today, Square Enix is beginning a Moogle painting movement with the kickoff of its Moogle Paint Contest 2008 jamboree.

Between now and May 5th, Square Enix is asking budding Moogle painters to create their own Moogle masterpieces and submit them via the game’s Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection interface. Submitted Moogles will be entered into three categories for judging, including Most Fashionable Moogle, Best Culture Moogle and Freestyle Moogle, and for each category there will be a First Prize, Second Prize and at least one overall Honorable Mention. All First Prize winners will receive a prize pack containing a stained-glass Moogle mascot, an art panel signed by Toshiyuki Itahana (the game’s character designer) and an extra special Moogle sticker, with all three Second Prize winners earning the same pack minus the stained-glass mascot.

But that’s not all. Each winner will also gain Internet fame by having their custom Moogle composition showcased on the Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates News website for all the world to see. Swing by the Moogle Paint Contest 2008 page to read up on all the rules.

Now go get painting already!
