Square Enix’s Final Fantasy kart racer Chocobo GP has been confirmed for launch on 10th March 2022.

The Mario Kart-style racer — a Switch exclusive, no less — will feature a bunch of courses set in and around locales from the Final Fantasy with a story mode, 64-player knock-out tourneys, Time Attacks, and various other modes you’d expect to see in a kart racer.

There will also be a free-to-download version of the game, Chocobo GP Lite. This version will give you access to the Story Prologue in single-player and also lets players who don’t have the full game play multiplayer (online and local, apparently) if hosted by a friend who’s got the full game.

Save data (and items and ‘currency’) from the Lite version will carry over to the full version should you choose to upgrade, and Lite players also get access to ‘test out’ the 64-player tournaments. Not a bad way to demo the game if you’re sitting on the fence. Here are a few screenshots:

As you can see from the new release trailer (above), it’s looking like Square Enix wants to give Mario Kart 8 Deluxe a run for its money. We’ll find out how it fares on 10th March next year.

Let us know below if you think it’s up to the task of taking on Mario and his karts.
