Racing and chocobos?
Chocobo GP is heir to a saga from the past. At the time of Squaresoft, the Japanese company designed Chocobo Racing for the first PlayStation. Over the years we have seen more such interactions in other systems. Final Fantasy may have changed over the years, turns have been left behind, but some of its elements remain intact. The moguri and chocobo continue to appear in installment after installment.
Square Enix works on Final Fantasy XVI, a production that was shown some time ago, during the PS5 presentation event. The studio has repeatedly said that it will not present it again until they are sure of the quality of the content. Who knows, maybe the Tokyo Game Show 2021 is the perfect setting to delight fans with an appetizer of what is to come.
