Chocobo Racing was released for PSX in US. Did it sell good or no?
Nah, it didn't share in the success of the main series. When a Japanese game gets released in NA and doesn't make it to Europe it's usually a bad sign in the sales charts that makes the developers reconsider the worth of localization...the only time they'll still try and release a game in Europe despite flopping on the US is if it's a puzzle game like such as picross. (As a matter of fact they try and see if that particular genre succeeds in EU first from now on) Not to mention, unlike FFT...Chocobo Racing didn't have a very vocal die hard cult following in the US.
Plus, CTR (definitely my favorite mascot racer) was seen more so as the PS1's definitive Mario Kart clone by a long shot. Of course Chocobo Racing was still damn good in my eyes, and I'm looking forward to seeing where they'll go with this.
Let's see: Blond hair. Blue eyes. Beats the living crap out of a guy with a Hebrew name. Yep, no doubts about it...Cloud Strife is a Nazi.
