They were basically impossible to replicate in this new art style. Instead they should've embraced the otherworldliness of the summons and gave them completely different art styles

FFXV carbuncle should be the standard. it's adorable.

This one is a travesty.

I dont understand the design of Moogle, Carbuncle... the little chocobo is still decent in some way, but these two are incredibly ugly... :|

Chocobo is cute as heck, but Carbuncle is a bit bland.

...But if you hate this but somehow were one of those people who stan the World of Final Fantasy designs, you don't deserve to post on the internet anymore.

Don't understand what the fuzz all about. They look okay. I'm pretty sure they'll look great ingame.

The chocobo and carbunkle are horrible.
Looks like a knock off plushie you find at the fair or at the market. The proportions are so bad... Also the moogle is atrocious, he has a weird line in the forehead and looks like somebody in a (bad) costume.

Appently all the money went to the characters redesign, and those were outsourced to fiverr.

I feel like the realistic take on an anime style is falling into the uncanny valley for me.

XV handled it better by making the creatures look more like real animals, and I think these designs would look better without the realistic textures/materials.

I like them, especially when seeing the Chocobo/Mog summon within the actual game itself

They're... fine? The only one I have issues with is Carbuncle, just lazy.
But Chocobo Chick is adorable!

OP's of threads are so often banned these days.

In any case, the foreheads are a little big lol.

I really like the Choco Mog. That Choco Chick and Carbuncle though... christ. Giant foreheads? Not a great look. Hopefully they'll look less terrifying in motion.

Can someone PLEASE photoshop the Chocochick hair on to Goku? Thanks in advance.

You guys are all tripping, they both look cute and different. Better designs there have been, sure, but I like these little doofs. I also loved the cactoids, they also had doof energy.

Having said this...
