Final Fantasy X-2 - Publicity

In the two years since the destruction of Sin, the Calm Lands have been transformed into a veritable amusement park. You can play a variety of mini-games, including Reptile Run, Sky Slots and Lupine Dash.

From the moment you first arrive there, you have the ability to participate in two side quests related to this area. There are two companies vying for customers to try out their attractions: Open Air and Argent, Inc. You can choose to aid one of the companies in getting more customers by participating in a publicity campaign on their behalf. It doesn't really matter which company you choose, as the end result will be the same.

There is also a second side quest you can choose to participate in.

Taking on both quests may seem like a lot of work, but it's actually a good idea to do them both concurrently. The female NPC's that are approachable during the publicity side quest are also fair game for the matchmaking side quest.

Publicity side quest information

To take on the Publicity side quest, just speak to one of the attendants from either company at any of the attractions and say yes to helping them with publicity. From that point on, when approaching NPC characters, press the Square button. If they are open to listening to your sales pitch for the publicity campaign, you'll be given five catch-phrases to choose from. Each NPC will react differently depending on what catch-phrase you choose. The maximum amount of publicity points you can get from each NPC is 5. If you get a negative reaction from them during Chapter 1, you can try again with a different approach during Chapters 2, 3 and 5.

If you choose to participate in this ongoing side quest, we highly recommend doing it at the beginning of the game from Chapter 1. You have to get a minimum of 400 P.R. points for either company if you want to get an "Episode Complete" standing for the Calm Lands in Chapter 5. For a complete list of NPC locations and which catch-phrases work best on them, choose "PR & Matchmaking NPC locations" from the menu at left.
