Final Fantasy 15's Carnival Event Has Begun, Here's Everything Its Update Includes

Free update provides new items and other bonuses.

20 Comments

A limited-time event is officially underway in Final Fantasy XV, coinciding with the release of a new update.

From now through February 19, players can visit the Moogle Chocobo Carnival. As shown off in a recent trailer, you'll find various carnival games, chocobo racing events, and new quests and items here. Square Enix says this takes place separate from the main story; as a result, you don't need to worry about spoilers.

Regardless of how far you've progressed, you can access the carnival via the Special option in the main menu. You will need to have downloaded either the free or paid version of the Holiday Pack DLC released in December. You can still grab that if you haven't already done so. With it installed, you'll obtain the Carnival Passport item that provides entry.

Anyone who visits the carnival while it's available will receive the Choco-Mog t-shirt and the photo frames seen in the gallery above. Season pass owners with the premium version of the Holiday Pack DLC installed also receive the Festive Ensemble outfit for Noctis and additional photo frames. You can see those below.

A free new update for Final Fantasy XV also arrives today. This provides the previously announced ability to take your own photos outside of combat. These can be taken in first- or third-person, and frames and filters can be applied to these like they can Prompto's photos.

@LJNkickstarter: Nope, it's free. Download the Holiday Pack DLC, make sure the game's updated to 1.04 and then go into "Special" form the titles screen.

What kind of level should we be for the quests? Or are they just fetching stuff around the area without combat?

The Moogle Chocobo Festival is so stupidly, gloriously schlock that I can't help but like it, running around Altissa with Noct dressed like a moron and doing the Kupo dance. There's a target shooting gallery where I couldn't figure out what the gun was supposed to be until I realized it's a Kingdom Hearts Gummi ship. It's a very generous update.

Also - MORE FISHING. Always good.

@gameroutlawzz: Lol again you're wrong (im getting really sick of having to correct you every single time you reply to one of my comments, I've never seen a bigger moron). First off says the guy who plays Overwatch LOL. Secondly, the Final Fantasy series has been around ages and is well respected and has had many relevant titles since the NES days. For example:

Final Fantasy VII: 92/100 on metaCritic (higher than Overwatch keep in mind LOL).

Final Fantasy IX: 94/100 on MetaCritic (again higher than Overwatch LOL).

Final Fantasy X: 92/100 on MetaCritic (again higher than Overwatch LOL).

There have been other good releases alongside those games but I just wanted to list the very best (and ones that were better than Overwatch just to see your butthurt lol). Final Fantasy XV got good reviews and sold very well. You're wrong yet again when you say that Final Fantasy is irrelevant. Also, you're hanging around this article which means you're hanging around weeaboo game articles LOL. Also, every time you comment you write the word "shi*". You sure dont have a very large insult vocabulary LOL.

On a side note, I have no idea why I keep replying to you since you're an obvious troll. Plus you never respond back since you have no argument every time you comment on one of my comments since you're always wrong LOL.
