Square Enix announced “Chocobo No Chocotto Nouen”, a farming simulation that will be available on GREE for feature phones and smartphones by year-end.
The biggest bullet point here is that the game uses Chocobo, a large bird that regularly appears in Final Fantasy RPGs (since the 1980s) and also had its own games. There is even a (pretty detailed) English Wikipedia article on the character.
Apart from that, Chocobo No Chocotto Nouen sounds like it will be a pretty straightforward farming sim (see pictures below).
Pre-registration for the game started yesterday: Square Enix says that users registering early will get a rare “black Chocobo” (the bird is usually yellow) as a present when the game actually goes live.
Last month, GREE and Square Enix announced a game distribution partnership that includes the Final Fantasy franchise.
Here are the first Chocobo No Chocotto Nouen screenshots:
