Chocobo GP launched exclusively on the Nintendo Switch system in January of this year and was available as a full price release or alternatively you can play the multiplayer aspect of the game as its free-to-play with a battle pass and micro transactions. Square Enix has announced today that the newly released Season 5 will be the final update for the game as they will no longer be supporting it. The in-game currency, which is named Mythril, will no longer available to purchase from the Nintendo Switch eShop. Square Enix advises players who have plenty of Mythril left over to spend it as it will become redundant on 1st June, 2023. Players should rest assured that you will still be able to play the Chocobo GP mode. Here’s the message:

Thank you for playing “Chocobo GP”.

Season 5 will be the last season where prize pass levels are used in the Chocobo GP mode. Operating policies for after Season 5 ends are detailed below.
>Rankings will continue without the use of prize pass levels, in the same way as the current season off period.

*It will remain possible to play the Chocobo GP mode itself.

Additionally, sales of Mythril on the Nintendo e-shop have been discontinued with the update released today at 15:00 (JST).

Accordingly, please be aware that all mythril, including any remaining non-paid for mythril, will become invalid at this time.

Furthermore, new items will continue to be added to the mythril shop during Season 5 as before, but the same items may also be added to the ticket or gil shops at the same time and become available to obtain without spending mythril.

  1. Lol that’s what they get from trying to turn a full game into a microtransaction game, it still sucks though because it’s essentially a better alternative Mario kart very creative and fun it’s too bad square decided to go money crazy with this one.
