Chao Online (known as Chao Universe in Japan) is an upcoming video game spin-off from the Sonic series based on Chao. The game will offer a variety of multiplayer games for the players' Chao to take action in, and will be released in 2016.


Your Chao is born from an egg discovered by Sonic. This is where you pick your Chao's name, colour and facial expression (you can't change these, so pick wisely). You preced through ChaoTropolis, and Sonic gives you an introduction to everything. He then lets you head off and do your own thing.

You first head off to the Chao Race Arena, and befriend a Chao called Lime, a limegreen Chao. The two of you win the Team Grape Cup and later return to Sonic that night. As you play the game more and more, more features will unlock.

Chao Status

Your Chao's statistics in the game must be upgraded in order for you to proceed through the game. There are several different status, that include:


To increase your Chao status, you have to buy special food woth rings you can collect in Party Games. You can also find special orbs in the Party Games too.


ChaoTropolis is the game's main hub area, which is in the middle of all the other areas in the game. There are several things you can do inside ChaoTropolis, which include:

  • Talking to NPC Chao, and taking challenges from them
  • Buy items in the Black Market
  • Going to the Chao Kindergarten, increasing your Chao's skills

ChaoTropolis is also in the middle of all the other areas, where you can access all of the Party Games.

Party Games

The Party Games are the main attraction of the game. Your Chao will need to be strong, however, as these can be tough. Chao Race is the only one unlocked at first.

Chao Race

Chao Race is the first area you can access in the game. The point of the game is to be the first to reach the goal. You have to upgrade your Chao well, however, as each status helps you in a certain way:

  • Speed increases how fast your Chao can run
  • Power increases how fast your Chao can punch walls and shake trees
  • Fly increases how fast and far your Chao can fly
  • Swim increases how fast your Chao can swim
  • Climbing increases how fast your Chao can climb
  • Jumping increases how fast your Chao can jump across gaps

As the player, the only thing you can do is move your Chao from left to right or release an item you are carrying. In Team Races, you carry a crown which doubles your speed, which you can give to one of your teammates if they are falling behind.

  • Whilst the NPC Chao can talk, your Chao cannot.
  • However, you can sometimes pick between lines for your Chao to reply with, like in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, although this usually barely changes the game's fate.
