In Final Fantasy XV, you don’t have to travel around only by car or on foot. You can ride Chocobos and make those big birds drift.

This is bonkers! There’s a speed dash, and then you can slow down suddenly and drift ‘em and hop over crocodiles.

And when you are done with that, you can go fishing.

This isn’t the first mention of Chocobos (or even fishing) in FFXV, and according to Square Enix, both the Chocobo-riding and the fishing in FFXV will feel different from previous games.
