Square Enix has shared a brief clip of the Moogles’ appearance in the upcoming Final Fantasy XVI. They do look like their usual adorable selves, but the ones here are certainly chonkier than the norm.
Regardless, it’s neat to see them appear in this mainline entry since, in Final Fantasy XV, they were merely sacrificial tools, so to speak, with no actual creatures being in the game.
You can view the clip revealing the Moogle design in Final Fantasy XVI below:

Final Fantasy XVI is set to be a more action-heavy entry than its predecessors, with a Devil May Cry V designer even taking the helm. Throughout the title, players will control the protagonist Clive, as he confronts various Dominants, humans who have been cursed with the power to become Eikons.
Clive is the “First Shield of Rosaria,” sworn to protect his younger brother Joshua, who’s the Dominant of Phoenix. However, following tragedy, Clive swears revenge on the Dark Eikon Ifrit.
The producer, Naoki Yoshida, describes this game as akin to his experience with the first Final Fantasy, as “playing the lead in an epic motion picture.” The reasoning for this title’s action-oriented approach and more classical fantasy setting was to “appeal to as wide a range of gamers as possible.” Moreover, “there will be a “comprehensive support system in place for players who aren’t too confident with action games.”
