Final Fantasy XV Chocobo Gameplay

A new gameplay video has arrived from Square Enix for Final Fantasy XV, this time featuring some Chocobo antics and a little bit of the fishing mini-game that the developers implemented into the title.

The video doesn’t show how far the animals can be ridden, but things like sliding, dashing, jumping and racing along the road with other herds of animals within the Final Fantasy universe is entirely possible. I do wonder if there will be a race mini-game or other fetch quests centered around this particular kind of mini-game? It seems perfectly suited for such miscellaneous activity.

The second half of the video dives into the game’s fishing mini-game. Final Fantasy is no stranger to fishing mini-games so seeing it added to this particular entry in the series at least certifies that the developers are working hard to ensure that there will be plenty of fluff to fill out the game’s play-time and replay factors.

The fishing mini-game consists of a couple of different quick-time segments that players must complete successfully in order to capture a fish and turn it into a scrumptious meal.

Final Fantasy XV is due out for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this September 30th.

Check out the Chocobo riding and fishing trailer down below:

“Chocobos can be rented in gil for up to 30 days, and called at any time. While riding chocobos, you can press the jump button again to make it try to stay airborne. When you get off a chocobo, it will follow you for a while. You cannot raise or breed chocobos. And you can catch fish of all sizes in bodies of water, using various different rods, to cook up back at camp.”
