The Chocobo GP Nintendo Switch Release Date has been announced. Yes, you read that right; your eyes aren’t deceiving you. Square Enix released the news that Chocobo GP is coming soon to the Nintendo Switch. Chocobo GP is an upcoming kart racing video game developed and published by Square Enix. It is scheduled for release for the Nintendo Switch in 2022.
I haven’t been this hyped for a Square game since Final Fantasy 9 all the way back in the year 2000.
I’m sure we’ll all agree on this next statement, so here it goes – The Final Fantasy franchise is packed full of absolute classic games. I’m super excited to get the chance to play a sort of spin off, in the form of a racing game. It’s fitting then that they’ll be race tracks from the streets of alexandria.
I totally didn’t see that coming at all! It’s the first I’ve heard of it, so thought I’d write an article telling you everything you need to know about when Chocobo GP will be available to play on the Switch.
I’ve detailed the full press release Square Enix published as well as the game play trailer and release date. Read on below for the details.
