Well poke me in the behind! I think I saw cacutar roaming around in the world of FFX. Can it be that our spikey friend has come back to us? These pics certainly do prove it, don't they?
Of course, we can't forget our beloved chocobo friends. So in Final Fantasy X, you will be able to train your chocobos in order to use them on the world map for faster travelling. Yay!
