    damn, i haven't even made it to Altissia in the main story yet, that's my next chapter and i don't want to break sequence by visiting a carnival in Altissia before the Story part takes me there... Catch22... dunno why devs treat these things like everyone's a speedrunner...

    If it helps, it's a totally separate instance of Altissia!

    Does anyone know how early in the game you can access this? It'd be a right shame to miss it!

    It's available on the main menu rather than through the actual game, so I'd imagine right away. You need to have a save file to sync it to (so your goodies and rewards get transferred) though.

    But I guess it would be pretty weird to visit Altissia as part of the festival before you get to go there in story, wouldn't it

    Yeah, it would take away some of the wonder of "oh my god look at this cool new city I've reached" which they go pretty hard on.

    Ah, fair enough. That's cool. Might drop in to do the LIMITED TIME FUN. Who thought this was a good idea. xD

    Hopefully they'll make these 'limited time' things more permanent in the future. It really kicks people who haven't got the game yet in the teeth.

    Why so soon after release? Especially on a game like this. I've spent 30-35 hours in-game at the minute and I'm only on Chapter 5! Some of us don't have a lot of spare time...

    I'm not having the Altissia arrival spoiled for me so I'll have to give this a miss

    All I ended up with is two new uniforms. I got them just by going in. I don't think anything there is missable but maybe 1 or 2 easter eggs.

    So this event ends on Feb. 19th? Looks like I'll have time to try it at some point.

    How are people finding it so far? Is there a decent amount of content?

    There is a few things you can do.

    1. Chocobo Races (Two trophies)
    2. A riddle game. (No prizes)
    3. Take photos. (No prizes)
    4. Find Mogs. (No prizes)
    5. Fishing (There is new types of fish)
    6. Learn two recipes
    7. Find Chickobos. (No prizes)
    8. Plus there is 3+ items you can get only by collecting Choco-Mog Tokens. (This is a paint job for the car, a chocobo egg which no one knows will do, and more I can't remember. Stuff like the ticket to see the firework show but that I believe lands you the egg. There is more stuff to do. I just can't recall.

    So... I rushed through the main events of this carnival my first time through. While supposedly I was to receive a Dream Egg among my key items, I didn't. As a matter of fact, after resting at the Leville, I'm forced to watch the fireworks forever and cannot leave without selecting Return to Title which has the consequence of not saving progress. I've tried this multiple times, always to the same effect. What am I doing wrong?

    My pal, Dexter, and I have had a longstanding on-and-off romance. I've proposed to her multiple times but she always says she's still young and wants to explore her sexuality while men are still interested. Well, men and women. She strokes both ways. That's a double entendre.

    The fireworks last a long time. You are not waiting long enough. I would try taking some photos and waiting it out. After the fire works are done you will get the egg as well as being able to explore again.

    On another note, you get a new reel and rod for fishing. You can even get some lures that might be exclusive. After the fireworks show you can get a VIP ticket for 99 Choco-mog medallions.

    My first time, I sat and watched the fireworks for 20 minutes. It's repetitive and has no clear ending. How the hell long am I supposed to wait?
