ChocoboGP

Today was a new Nintendo Direct, and has sometimes happens, there was lots of nice surprises. Some of them leaked ahead of time, but one of the games that pretty much no one saw coming was a new Final Fantasy-themed kart racer that is a callback to an old subset of the series that some may not even be aware existed. That game is Chocobo GP.

The game came alongside an announcement trailer, which you can see below. It’s a kart racer styled after the likes of Mario Kart and Sonic Team Racing, only with the Final Fantasy mascot, the beloved Chocobo front and center. Much like those other examples, you race other players and use special power ups to gain an advantage as well as spells taken from the franchise like Fira. It’s not just the feathered friends you’ll get to play, either, as it will include other original characters and those from classic titles such as Vivi from Final Fantasy 9. The game seems to be something of a modern interpretation of Chocobo Racing, a similar kart racer released in 1999 for the PS1.

Chocobo GP is set to release sometime in 2022 exclusively on the Nintendo Switch.
