Coming 2022.


I don't know what's weirder: this or Yoko Taro's next title being a Switch-exclusive card game.

Confirmed characters
-Chocobo
-Shiroma (White Mage)
-Vivi (Black Mage)
-Steiner (not a Mage)
-Gilgamesh
-A Moggle
-Some red girl chocobo? IDK I don't play the MD games.
-A couple of dudes with mustaches (one of them is probably a Cid)

Confirmed courses
-Cid's Test Track (?)
-Zozo (6)
-Gold Saucer (7)
-Alexandria (9)

So like does anyone remember when a Chocobo racing game was announced for 3DS way back in E3 2011? I wonder if this is the same game.

I wish this was on more than just the Switch. I really enjoy racers and this would have been great to enjoy with a Dualsense controller.

Hope they put in a minimum 2 reps from each main game and a stage from each main game as well. Throw FFXVI reps in there too, while you're at it SE.

If this is Switch-only, that sucks. I was really excited to begin with, at all the IX love. Oh, well.

Yeah, I'll echo the IX representation is bomb. God, the Switch's library has been looking really attractive lately. Ugh. I don't need another system.

I'm curious to see who the other racers might be. Mario Kart 8 and CTR have both been awesome this past generation (and might I add I would have LOVED to see a multiplayer version of Yakuza Like a Dragon's Kart Racer), and this is really exciting as something of a fresh face face for kart racing. There hasn't been an entry since the PS1, right? And I never did get a chance to play it, so this will be my first experience with Chocobo Racing and from what I've seen I'm pretty excited.

I would be more excited for this game if it included chibi versions of various FF characters like DOO or WoFF. I do like the concept and how itโ€™s not a complete Mario Kart rip off. But these characters are not interesting at all except for Vivi, Steiner, and Gilgamesh.

It's weird how we're like THIS close to actual Kingdom Karts.

When this popped up I saw Mickey first and thought he was wearing his dark KH3 clothes and I was like โ€œomg itโ€™s happening.โ€

So uh turns out this game is a $50 f2p hoax


Didnโ€™t Babylonโ€™s Fall just pull the same shit a few days ago? Cโ€™mon SEโ€ฆ
Predatory monetization methods in a premium-priced game are trash and SE should have learned from literally every lawsuit that has happened since EA fucked up with SW Battlefront and their own fuckups with Avengers lol

Matsudaโ€™s business strategy is basically make his developers sell snake oil

I've enjoyed my time with the Lite version, but I'm really torn about grabbing the "full" game knowing all of the Season Pass BS.
