The release date trailer also shows off several game modes, both on and offline. The Story Mode, Series Mode and Time Attack will all be very popular game modes. On the multiplayer front, up to 64 racers will be able to compete in online tournaments to take home the grandest of prizes.

Custom races will also allow for much more unique contests and ones that you can dictate what the conditions of the tournaments will be.

Gameplay trailer

The gameplay trailer gave us three laps of action for Chocobo GP just a few days after the game was announced. This gameplay demo gave us a sneak peek into features such as the drifting, power-ups, and boost mechanics.

Unfortunately, as the game is shown in Japanese, there's a lot such as the track and character names that we can't decipher here. However, what isn't in doubt is how good the game looks and appears to play too.
