Final Fantasy XV Gets Adorable Carbuncle Animated GIF; Team Working Through Golden Week

Final Fantasy XV’s “Become a Chocobo Keeper” campaign is in full swing, and a new “reward” was unlocked in the form of… an animated GIF.

I’m not exactly sure if an animated GIF really does count as something that can be considered a reward (especially given that the Japanese campaign actually comes with physical memorabilia raffled among participants), but this one is quite adorable, featuring Carbuncle as he plays with the camera.

On top of this, we get news from Japan, that is currently enjoying the Golden Week, a bunch of national holidays close together that results in a large percentage of the local population taking a vacation. Looks like this doesn’t apply to the Final Fantasy XV team, still hard at work to finish the game.

“Along with a large amount of snacks (bottom left), during the Golden Week everyone in the development team is hard at work!!”

We also get a close-up on the snacks directly from the desk of “a certain Director.” A true balanced diet for the typical Japanese crunch.

Incidentally, the “certain Director” (is that you, Tabata-san?) has good taste. Alfort chocolate is awesome.

One thing is for sure: we have to respect the dedication of the folks working on this game. So far the results have certainly been very visible.
