Man, talk about a bummer! Earlier today, we shared a reminder about the Season 5 update for Chocobo GP, which is now available. Unfortunately, we’re following that news with word of support coming to an end.
Alongside the announcement of Season 5, Square Enix confirmed that they’re ending post-launch support for Chocobo GP. You can see Square Enix’s entire message about content coming to an end below.
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.
There will be no further large scale updates (e.g. new characters or new maps) to the game after the Season 5 update on Wednesday, December 21, 2022.
*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).
Mythril that players own will still be able to be used at the in-game mythril shop during Season 5 and beyond, but the shop itself will disappear when all purchased mythril becomes invalid as of 00:00 on 01/06/2023 (JST). Accordingly, please be aware that all mythril, including any remaining non-paid for mythril, will become invalid at this time. *As it is not possible to receive a refund for purchased Mythril, please be sure to spend before its expiration.
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.
Items originally sold in the Mythril Shop during the Season 1 to Season 4 periods may also be added to the Ticket or Gil Shops.
*Items originally sold in the Mythril Shop as exclusive to Season 1 may also be put back on sale (with some exceptions).
*Items originally awarded as Prize Level rewards for Season 1 may also be put on sale in the Ticket or Gil Shops.
Not super suprised, the games payment models got a ton of players off from getting the game even if we looked forward to it after having played chokobo racing many years ago.
Anyone keeping up with the game, is it really solid content now or just a grind with little content which it seemed at the release?
