Chocobo GP Lite was recently discontinued on June 1, and Square Enix have quietly re-released Chocobo GP on Nintendo Switch in the Nintendo eShop. The new release of Chocobo GP features all content released up to the point of the Lite version’s discontinuation, including the Chocobo GP’s Season 5 Update.
As spotted by Nintendeal, Chocobo GP is now available for $49.99 in the Nintendo eShop with all in-game unlockables and no microtransactions. The Nintendo Switch game was quietly re-released on June 15, and the Chocobo GP Lite Nintendo eShop page is no longer available. However, players who previously played Chocobo GP Lite and still have the game downloaded may upgrade to the full version of Chocobo GP on Nintendo Switch. A separate Nintendo eShop page for this upgrade is also live alongside the full game.
Here’s an overview of Chocobo GP, via the Nintendo eShop:
