Square-Enix Theatrhythm Static Arts mini adds more characters photo
Square-Enix Theatrhythm Static Arts mini adds more characters
by Natalie Kipper

We have been tracking the Final Fantasy Theatrhythm Static Arts mini series since the first figures were spotted at last year's Tokyo Game Show. At that point, the only characters to be seen were Final Fantasy VII's Cloud, Sephiroth, and Tifa. More than a few Final Fantasy fans were disappointed to not have heroes from other entries in the series represented. Well, your prayers have been answered (sort of)!

Three new characters have been revealed in a Facebook album: Final Fantasy VIII's Squall plus series mainstays, the Moogle and Chocobo. I kind of enamored with both the Moogle and Chocobo but I will admit that more protagonists would have been nice. No price nor release date has been revealed for this trio as of yet.
