Chocobo GP Is Square Enix’s Final Fantasy Take On Kart Racing (VIDEO)
A Final Fantasy kart racing game was likely low on the list of expectations for viewers tuning into today’s Nintendo Direct. That said, one does not simply turn away adorable chocobos. Officially titled Chocobo GP, the kart racing game features loads of Final Fantasy flavor and is slated to release on Nintendo Switch in 2022.
As one would expect from a Final Fantasy kart game, players will have their choice of karts, roller skates, and more to choose from as they race as characters from the Final Fantasy franchise. These characters appear to be some of the more wholesome options from Final Fantasy games such as Moogle, Chocobo, Vivi, Behemoth, Gilgamesh, Steiner, and more. The tracks shown thus far are similarly steeped in Final Fantasy history, with the reveal trailer showcasing Cid’s Test Course (FFVII), Alexandria, what appears to be Lindblum, and of course the Gold Saucer.
If Square Enix is following a similar format to Mario Kart then players can expect a ton of unlockable karts and characters that will undoubtedly please Final Fantasy fanatics. What we’ve seen thus far has for the most part centered around Final Fantasy IX and the Final Fantasy universe in general, though chances are we’ll hear about more unlockable characters prior to the game’s release.
Chocobo GP is slated to release in 2022 exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
