Chocobo GP releases on Switch eShop today, and Square Enix are celebrating with a launch trailer.

For more information on the game, see below:

System: Switch
Release date: March 10, 2022
Developer: Square Enix
Publisher: Square Enix

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.

Chocobo GP Squall

Square Enix shared more information about Chocobo GP’s Season feature today as well as confirmation that all players will be able to obtain Squall.

Here’s the rundown from Square Enix:

Chocobo GP Cloud Strife

Square Enix has confirmed that Cloud Strife will be appearing in Chocobo GP, but there’s a catch. The company has said that the character will be a Season Pass exclusive award that players can unlock. It’s not currently unclear if Cloud will be made available beyond that in the future.
