Ready to race? Square Enix

There’s already a lot of kart racing games available on mobile, but Square Enix wants to join the fun with Chocobo GP. This one has players go through wild and hectic stages to deliver treasure to the finish line. Available on Android and iOS devices, it’s sure to offer a new kind of experience whether you’re a fan of the Final Fantasy series.

This game is a sequel to Chocobo Racing, released way back in 1999 on PlayStation. At that time, it really didn't catch on, especially with reviews saying that it was just a way to join the kart racer genre. A sequel was first announced back in 2010 but when it was found out that the quality didn't meet the standards, it was canceled in 2013.

Features of the game include:

  • Go on a campaign where Chocobo and friends enter a racing tournament to grant their greatest wish.
  • Enjoy local split-screen or online multiplayer with friends.
  • Race through enchanting locations to unlock new characters with unique abilities.

In terms of gameplay, it’s pretty easy since there are only two controls. Players just need to use dash or back commands to reach the finish line. However, at any time a player loses their balance, all treasures collected are dropped.
