It takes some guts to release a Switch-exclusive kart racer on the same platform that houses the sales juggernaut that is Mario Kart 8 Deluxe; it takes even more guts to ape Nintendo’s kart racer so closely at a mechanical level that comparisons will be all but inevitable. Chocobo GP is the latest entry in Square Enix’s Final Fantasy-themed series of racing games, and it tries to set itself apart from the competition by including a fully-voiced story mode, a unique approach to power-ups, and oodles of Final Fantasy charm. Unfortunately, the slim track count and safe but unremarkable racing mechanics makes Chocobo GP feel inessential at best.

Over on Twitter, Nintendo has provided a look at a number of tracks in Chocobo GP. Fans can get a look at courses from Final Fantasy V, VI, VII, and IX – specifically Zozo, Alexandria, Big Bridge, and Gold Saucer in that order. That last one is giving some fans vibes of Rainbow Road from Mario Kart.
