The children seem ecstatic to receive presents and spend time with their families.

But amid all the laughter and cheer, there's a somber-looking boy roaming about...

Different Notes
We just wanted to take a bit more time to explain a note's color and how it denotes when or how you should press the key.

Blue: Press the key when the border and icon overlap.
Yellow: Press the key when the border and icon overlap, then rapidly press the key until they overlap again.
Red: Press and hold the key when they overlap, and then let it go when they overlap again.

Difficulty Selection
This musical mini-game will playable at two difficulties, Normal and Hard.

You can select the difficulty by speaking to the corresponding NPC.

A warm-looking chocobo barding has been added! I'd also like to add that the saddle is very fluffy and comfortable!

Furnishings include a wreath, a poster, and a roll cake so that you may bring the festivities home! ♪ I'm ecstatic for the Goobbue-themed wreath but that roll cake looks very tasty! ♡ 

I hope you enjoy this year's Starlight Celebration and if you have any roll cake to spare, let me know! Just kidding! (Not really...)
