Final Fantasy Wiki

Chocobo Racing 3D was the codename of a Chocobo game being developed for the Nintendo 3DS. The game was announced at E3 2010, although it was unknown whether it was going to be an original game or a remake of the first Chocobo Racing game (whose full title was actually Chocobo Racing ~Genkai e no Rōdo~ in Japan). On October 10th, 2013, Takashi Tokita said that the game is canceled.


The name "chocobo" derives from a Japanese brand of chocolate malt ball by Morinaga, ChocoBall (チョコボール, Chokobōru?). The mascot for this product is Kyoro-chan (キョロちゃん?), a bird who says "kweh".

食う / くう / kuu is a rough way to say "eat", whose volitional casual form is 食え / くえ / kue ("let's scoff 'em down!"), leading to Kweh!


  • This game would have been the third Square racing game to feature 3D graphics. The first two were 3-D WorldRunner and its sequel JJ, both released for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Both required special glasses though, unlike Chocobo Racing 3D. Incidentally, Jack, the hero of these two games, was unlockable in the first Chocobo Racing.
