A Close Encounter of the Zoshi Kind (also known as Close Encounters or Close Encounters of the Zoshi Kind) was the first mission to be released of the Super Moshi Missions: Season Two The Super Moshis travel to Music Island to find an UFO that Tamara Tesla spotted. After meeting Buster Bumblechops, you join him in his journey deep within the Gombala Gombala Jungle to find the rare CocoLoco. But that's not all you'll find.
The mission can be played by visiting the Observatory and speaking with Tamara Tesla or by clicking on the mission launcher. However - this means the dialogue with Tamara Tesla is skipped and you miss out on the reason for playing the mission.
