They say that wicked creatures prowl the road along this beautiful riverbank, but nobody has ever seen one. I once asked a man why. He simply replied, "Because anyone who happens upon one is promptly eaten!" But it is long since anyone has met such a fate. For nowadays, people take another route, far away from the spooky old road. Only we walk the old way now... travelers in crystal caravans.Narration
The River Belle Path is located in the middle of the Tipa Peninsula. Bypassed by the newer highway to the west, the Path is only visited by Crystal Caravanners. The area is populated entirely by monsters, including mus, goblins, and hedgehog pies.
At the far end of the path to the right of the Hot Spot lives a moogle couple who has just settled into their new home. This is the only sighting of moogles in a dungeon that does not result in a stamp on the player's card or the use of Moogle Paint. To the left of the Hot Spot lies a cave leading to a beautiful waterfall that creates a rainbow with the reflected sunlight, behind which lurks the Giant Crab who guards the local Myrrh Tree.
The nest of the moogles is located across the drawbridge up the path east of the Hot Spot. It is carved into the side of the rocky wall and the player must examine and strike the entrance before he/she can enter. The nest is hidden and the player might miss it during the first play through.
There are three Hot Spots located in the River Belle Path. The first one is of the Water element and is located at the start of the stage near the river. The next Hot Spot of the Wind element is located just beyond the bridge at the beginning of the dungeon and the last one is located at the end of the stage on the path leading to the Crab's den; its element is Water.
The River Belle is a secret dungeon, unlocked after completing the game once in both story and multiplayer mode. It is a remake of the dungeon from the original game with a poisonous gas covering the area and a boss fight with the Giant Crab at the end in the cave with a waterfall.
The River Belle reappears as a dungeon. Just like in Ring of Fates, it appears after completing the game once. The area itself is basically the same as Ring of Fates. The moogle Mog appears in the same area, stating he will repair the house that once stood in the area, most likely talking about the Moogle's House that once stood in the dungeon in Crystal Chronicles. The Giant Crab appears as a boss once again, this time with the same color as he appeared in the original Crystal Chronicles.
