Chocobo Grand Prix, Square Enix’s latest entry into the racing genre, is finally here and Switch players will soon be able to race their favorite Final Fantasy characters. It was released with a free version and a full version, but many players were dismayed by the major push in both versions of the game to buy the game’s premium currency, Mythril.
Mythril is used in-game to purchase prize passes, level-up tickets, and more, and is primarily acquired through purchase from Nintendo eShop, although some can also be obtained as login bonuses. With prices starting at $9.99 for 1000 mithril and going up to $81.99 for 11400 mithril, the usual concerns about microtransactions in gaming have resurfaced, especially given Nintendo’s family-friendly reputation. But Chocobo GP’s Mythril actually includes an additional little twist on the knife: it decays.
On the in-game Mythril page, a small notice at the bottom of the screen warns that “Mythril expires at the end of the month, 5 months after purchase.” So if you bought something on launch day, you have until the end of August to redeem it output, otherwise it disappears. So beware if you’re considering spending money on a godsend from Mythril: if you don’t use it up in full, it’ll be just money down the drain within a few months.
