Style Your Chocobo: New Chocoboutique Feature Coming to Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth

Square Enix has revealed an exciting new feature coming to the highly anticipated Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth that will add a fun new element of customization for players. The “chocoboutique” will allow players to outfit their chocobos with various accessories that will impact the birds’ performance in races.

Customize Your Chocobo’s Style and Speed

The chocoboutique, accessible at chocobo ranches, will offer a variety of bardings, saddles, caps, and feather colors that can be equipped to your chocobos. These accessories will not only change the look of your chocobo, but also affect stats like speed, stamina, acceleration, handling, and more during races at the fan-favorite Gold Saucer chocobo racing arena.

For those fondly remembering breeding strong chocobos and competing in races in the original Final Fantasy 7, this beloved side feature makes a return in Rebirth. The addictive chocobo racing will be back and better than ever with the added strategy the chocoboutique accessories provide.

While Square Enix confirmed chocobos can be customized at ranches, details remain unclear regarding how players will obtain new gear sets for their birds and what specific accessories will be available. We’ll have to wait for more details to emerge before the game launches next year.

Fans Are Excited

Initial reactions from Final Fantasy 7 fansite communities have been very positive regarding the chocoboutique reveal. Adding deeper customization and new strategic elements to such a cherished mini-game mode is being welcomed with open arms.

Enhanced Combat Also Coming

On top of chocobo racing improvements, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth will introduce a dynamic difficulty mode to combat that automatically adjusts battle challenge based on player performance to accommodate a wider range of playstyles.

Combined with stunning next-gen graphics built on Unreal Engine 5, Rebirth is shaping up to take the Final Fantasy 7 Remake series to new heights when it releases February 29, 2024 exclusively for PlayStation 5.

I've been playing games for pretty much as long as I can remember. There's about 15 years of gaming experience under my belt at this point. Destiny, Warframe, Halo, CoD and the list goes on. I was a brief world record holder for Destiny 2 speedrunning, as well as a season-long stint as a top 10 ranked PVP player. More recently, I've been shooting for the Celeste speedrun leaderboards. In-between sessions of getting too mad at shooters, I spend a lot of my time playing gacha games like Honkai Star Rail and Limbus Company.
