Chocobo GP is set to be the latest IP set as part of the Final Fantasy franchise, but what is the release date for the new game?
The game will be a kart racer based on popular characters, summons and GFs from the massive RPG franchise.
Hoping to be a challenger to the likes of Mario Kart 9 and Crash Team Racing, Chocobo GP looks set to be the Square Enix attempt at getting into the genre.
