Chocobo


I've been pretty into fat Chocobos (or are they just big chocoboned?) since Brett wrote this thing on getting into MMOs through Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. I still likely won't play it, though, and I won't buy this bad...


I saw that Square Enix had shared a video of producer Yuji Abe's playthrough of a certain chocobo quest in Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. Hmm, I thought. Then I saw a major games website run a new hands-on preview of...


In case you weren't aware, Square Enix showed off a video for Chocobo Racing 3D a few years back, and nothing ever really came of it. Everyone assumed it was either still in development or canceled, but Siliconera talked to ...


I like Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. I dug it from our very first hands-on preview, and I'm now I'm digging it even more after playing the new Tokyo Game Show floor demo. Some felt that the first preview was a b...




There is a surprising amount of great cosplay at PAX. People walk around in some pretty elaborate and sometimes beautiful outfits. While all impressive, most of it is the same thing you normally see: a Lara Croft here, a Mast...


Uhhhh... here you go! Your dose of weirdness for the weekend! Enjoy! The comedy duo of Max and Sam decided to start a mini-series in which they record a cappella renditions of Final Fantasy songs. As much as I enjoy a good a...


In our massive Final Fantasy XIII-2 preview I talked about the game's crazy Chocobo-obsessed merchant. Her name is Chocolina, and she is a total nut job. First off, she's wearing feathers over her arms and hands, and what loo...


If you fancy getting traumatized this morning, watch the above video. It's the opening moments of Final Fantasy: Type 0 and it will tear away everything that you've ever held as good because a Chocobo gets totally f*cked up ...


Square-Enix may have a little more to do with the world of Wakfu than just publishing the French-developed MMORPG that is set for open beta later this fall. During the Anime Expo panel “An Introduction to the World of W...


  Here's something I'd never thought we would see again. Square Enix is developing a new Chocobo Racing game for the 3DS. Tenatively titled Chocobo Racing 3D, I assume it will consist largely of riding on the backs of ch...


It's a simple question, really: What is a chocobo? Anyone in the gaming community could tell you in an instant and most likely pop in a copy of some Final Fantasy game and show you as well. But what about the random man on t...


Chocobo's Crystal Tower. That sounds cute. It also sounds dungeon crawler-y. That's fine by me, as I love dungeons that are mysterious. Of course, I'm just guessing. This is only a trademark. We're guessing its a new game. Sq...


Last time we spent all week focusing on just the Final Fantasy series, and it was quite a lot to focus on. If you thought that was daunting though, just wait! Final Fantasy debates are usually a touchy subject, but while the ...


I love the fact that the Entertainment Software Association gets together every year to organize and fund what really amounts to a giant, industry-wide case of blue balls. Take, for example, this footage of Final Fantasy XIII...


The level of win in the photo above is somewhat beyond my ability to comprehend, but it seemed an ideal photo to use to celebrate the re-release of the Playstation 1 classic Chocobo Racing on PSN (well, in Japan anyway). I'd ...


Sorry for the unimaginative post title, but Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers has such a long-ass name that I didn't have room for any extra words other than "new," "video," and "...


 People that say animals are dumb can suck it. Seriously. This little bird jams out for the next three and a half minutes to a very familiar tune -- one especially beloved to me, in fact. The video was uploaded by a Japa...


Guess who's excited about this.You'll never guess.Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo Tales 2 comes out in Japan this December 11th. There's no US release date yet, but considering a sequel was produced so quickly after the first game, I have a feeling we'll be seeing this in the US soon enough. Much to my complete, unreasonably exuberant delight. Bring it on, Square.[Via Gamekyo]


So yeah, I like chocobo. A lot. Sure, they're cute, but the incarnation of Chocobo that you know from Chocobo Tales and Chocobo's Dungeon has more than just the adorable factor going on -- his sense of positivity and determin...


Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo’s Dungeon is a mouthful. Luckily, it is also an upcoming RPG for the Wii. Today, developer Square Enix gifted the gaming world with 15 new and exciting screens of this loveable little title...


So does anyone know a good tax attorney? It's getting precariously close to the 15th of April, and lazy Dyson hasn't even bothered to total up his expenses for the year. You can claim Pizza Rolls as a business expense, right?...


Wasn't I just recently bemoaning my sad fate if the most recent entry in the Chocobo's Dungeon series didn't make it to the US? I choose to believe that Square heard my desperate plea, rather than the more likely explanation ...


We talked about the announcement of Chocobo no Fushigi na Dungeon: Tokiwasure no Meikyuu way back in September 2007, where I performed the accurate amount of screaming in joyful anticipation and then went back to the daily gr...


[As originally posted on Tomopop] Usually I privately rebel against blind boxed toys. Despite the fun factor of not knowing what I'm getting, sometimes I just don't want to blow my money on ten boxes in hopes of getting ...


Posting on Christmas Eve has its advantages. You have a captive audience, since everyone is either traveling somewhere or waiting to be attacked by waves of relatives, with nothing to do in the interim. On the other hand, it ...


Square-Enix's recent updates to their website prove that Chocobo games are indeed aimed at kids, which points out that I am clearly perfectly happy being a thirty year old kid. They are offering an arts and crafts contest to ...


We haven't seen any major updates on the new Chocobo's Dungeon title coming for Wii, so I was thrilled to find this floating on the old interwebs. Plenty of new CG to google over and a confirmed Japanese release date of Decem...


Meeting in the Square-Enix Boardroom, 1 pmJapanese guy in suit: So, we need to launch some new product for the holidays. We don't have any major titles launching so we need a way to rake in money.Japanese guy with spiky hair:...


 I know you're thinking to yourself: Didn't she just talk about Chocobos? Why yes, I did. Now, I'm going to do it again, since the trailer for Chocobo's Dungeon is now available for me to watch repeatedly and coo over. W...


I will complain about Square-Enix releasing too many titles and sullying their good name to no end, but when a chocobo game is released, I just lose all my steam and become a cooing dove. I love the little birds, you see, and...


For where there is Chocobo, evil dares not tread. The prophecy foretells of a time when the yellow-crested harbingers of Instrumentality will stride forth as heralds of joy across the marshes and mountains as a ray of beauty ...


The above video popped up on Youtube yesterday and it appears to be the first fully-English cutscene from the upcoming Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions. Honestly, I was excited enough about this title just based ...


I pretend I'm rational, pragmatic, unsentimental. I deal with the issues, man, the core of our intellectual relationship with games, the subtle layers of gamer psychology. And I feign androgyny; my gender has no place in my ...


Who would have thought? The Final Fantasy XII world of Ivalice has been shrunk down to pocket size. Fans have been keeping an eye out for Final Fantasy XII Revenant Wings ever since we heard about it earlier this year, and ...


Here at Destructoid, we love it when our readers do the work for us -- case in point, this week's fake game idea. Conceptualized and Photoshopped by forumite BFeld13, it's called Chocobitch Tales (as in, "Is Wayn...


Square-Enix is a company waist-deep in adorable mascots and eyeball-deep in Japanese folk who, instead of eyeballs, have constantly rotating, glowing dollar signs (yen signs?). As such, the good folks at the Squenix Maibatsu ...


 Until I see a fully 3D represantation of Midgar as my wedding cake, this wins as one of my favorite food interpretations of video games of all time. Apparently on Live Journal you can make a community about anything f...


While we've already reported on a couple of Square Enix's latest plans for parting you from your cash, a report at Japanator on the Square Enix Party '07 reveals a nefarious multi-format campaign of terror, inte...


Japan is the mother of the whore we call merchandising, and Square Enix its squalling child. You want a Buster Sword? King Slime ashtrays? Neon FF7 logo sign for your bar? All these items and more can be ordered, should you b...


Art being subjective and all, it's easy enough to say something is art when it's really just a pile of festering dog crap you passed on your way to buy beer. Add games into the formula, and you get an even bigger argu...
