First thing that crosses my mind is money god as that 'statue' looks a bit like him (the afro).
For those who dont know, in Asia Home there has been a tradition yearly where players chase an NPC figure around their Home Square to win a packet of PSN Cash to spend. If you catch the Money God you win a reward as well as the cash to spend.
Money God was the first and theyve had other similar characters like Money God junior at times.
Historically these events are put on by Sony Asia.
Maybe Granzella is getting involved this year?
Asia region still are supposed to be receiving new content until March although they havent got much in the last month.
im in agreement with cin here, although its that time of the year for the money god, I think it woulda been advertised as the money god. I strongly believe when home comes to a close, region by region, a developer will come to the rescue. I think thats what were seeing.
I chased him the last event in HK but unfortunately I caught the bogus one and got the T-shirt.
