Square Enix announced Chocobo GP will release on March 10, 2022. Additionally, a free trial version of Chocobo GP will be available, allowing players to try out the single and multiplayer mode of the game. Players will also have access to the Story Mode Prologue of Chocobo GP through the free trial. The standard version will cost 6,578 yen, or $57. The Square Enix e-STORE limited edition will cost 9,658 yen, or $85. This version will come with the OST, and two magnet sets. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]
As mentioned previously, the free trial will allow players to access various game modes. Similar to the release of Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition, those on the free trial can pair up with players that own the full release of the game to access more features. This means that players will have access to local multiplayer matches if the race is hosted by a player who owns the full release of the game.
Additionally, free trial players will have access to the 64 player knock-out online tournament mode. Save data from the free trial will also carry over into the full version of the game once purchased. However, in order to access online matches, players will need to have a subscription to the Nintendo Online service.
Chocobo GP will release for Nintendo Switch worldwide on March 10, 2022.
