Chocobo GP is the latest in a long line of Mario Kart clones, but it’s also a sequel to 1999’s Chocobo Racing. Instead of Nintendo characters you can play as heroes, villains, and monsters from Final Fantasy RPGs. In addition to a story mode and a 64-person tournament, the racer includes time attack with asynchronous multiplayer racing, series races for mini-tournaments, and custom races with custom rules.
Chocobo GP Lite is a free-to-download version that allows anyone to play the 64-player tournaments, as well as the story mode prologue, with a limited amount of characters. If a player wants to upgrade to the full game, save data, including items and currency, will carry over.
Local (split-screen) and online multiplayer can feature up to eight players, as long as the host owns a full copy of the game.
Chocobo GP will launch on March 10, 2022 It’s rated E10+.
