Ready, Set, ChocoGO!
Normally I ignore news about new racing games. With the key proviso that I like the weird stuff. The Mario Karts and Twisted Metal. So when I saw Square Enix was giving us a racing game called Chocobo GP, I got really excited. And it looks like Chocobo GP is set to put a smile on all our faces in 2022.
Not only does Chocobo GP feature beloved characters from Final Fantasy, including Chocobo, Cid, Vivi and more, it also looks to include some interesting mechanics. Instead of using item boxes to arm yourself, you pick up Magicite eggs, providing you with powerful spells. Burn your competitors with Fira or blast them away with Aero. The plot revolves around a tournament that will reward the winner with their greatest desire.
Oh, and did I mention Chocobo GP is going to be a Switch exclusive? Though they didn’t specify if it was a timed exclusive, that’s still a nice touch. Add in up to 64 player tournaments and lots of customization options, and this has the potential to be a really great racing game. Be sure to check out the trailer below. And stay tuned to HPP for more games that rev our engines!
