Square Enix has revealed Chocobo GP, a game that is pitched as “a thrilling new kart racing experience set in the Chocobo universe.”
You will be able to dash to the finish line as the game’s namesake and star, Chocobo and friends, challenging you to conquer a racing tournament to win an unbelievable reward – a wish for anything that your heart desires – and master courses from well-known Chocobo and Final Fantasy series locations.
In wanting to know what else the experience has in store for you, the publisher has outlined the below:
- Various game modes – Play various modes including Story and Custom Races. Also enjoy exciting survival races in a bracket-style tournament, which can support up to 64 players. Select modes support online and/or local multiplayer.
- Thrilling courses – Race through various courses taking inspiration from the Chocobo and Final Fantasy series, including Cid’s Test Track, the streets of Alexandria and Zozo and the Gold Saucer.
- Roster of Beloved Characters – Players can choose from a wide selection of Chocobo series characters.
- Magical magicite – By collecting magicite, found within Magic Eggs scattered around the various tracks, racers will be imbued with magic, such as Fire or Aero, which can be used against their fellow racers to give them a competitive edge and speed to the finish.
Chocobo GP will release at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2022.
