Chao World is an interactive pet simulator game developed by PlatinumGames, the people behind Bayonetta and Transformers: Devastation, and published by Sega, all under the guidance of Mac the Writer. The objective of the game is very simple: A player chooses either a boy raiser, a girl raiser, the player's Mii, or any Sega characters unlocked, and raise Chao to see them interact with each other, play instruments, learn new lessons, etc.


Raising a Chao

Chao reincarnation

The gameplay of Chao World is heavily inspired by the Chao Garden of Sonic Adventure 1 and 2. The main objective of the game is to raise your Chao and make sure they stay happy from life to rebirth. If they're unhappy, they die at their last year and will never be seen again. Like in the previous Chao Garden, a Chao has a first evolution and a second evolution. A first evolution is when a Chao grows to an adult after around 4 hours of lifetime in the Garden. A second evolution, however, is more about a Chao changing form naturally instead of turning to a cocoon, indicating it aging throughout the "years".

Changes from the Adventure games

There are a lot of differences from that to the Chao Garden of the Adventure games.

  • A full year in a Chao Garden is now calculated by 5 hours instead of 2 or 3 hours.
  • Each Gardens can now hold up to 24 Chao instead of 8, and they're a lot bigger, too.
  • Chao are now capable of regularly interacting with each other, and can interact differently depending on their personality, what they learned, and how they grow.
  • There are certain toys that can now be bought from the Black Market instead of just the Chao Stadium, although there are some of them that can only be unlocked in the Chao Stadium.
  • Speaking of which, the Chao Stadium now has some new games in it, but more on that later.

Playable Characters

These are characters that the player can use to raise their Chao. At first, the choice is very limited, with only three playable characters at the beginning. However, depending on the actions the player or their Chao takes, there will be more and more characters unlocked.

Start-Up Characters

Male Raiser

One of the three start-up characters. The male raiser is as basic as it sounds. He's just a raiser who's a boy.


Female Raiser

One of the three start-up characters. The female raiser is as basic as it sounds. She's just a raiser who's a girl.



One of the three start-up characters. If a player prefers a closer connection to their Chao, they can choose their Mii as a raiser.

Chao Gardens

Unlike Sonic Adventure 1 and 2, the Chao Gardens in Chao World are a lot bigger. There's also a lot more Gardens in this game than in previous ones, more of which can be unlocked. Each Chao Garden can hold up to 24 Chao, and can have a total of 5 toys per Gardens. When a player visits a Garden for the first time, there will always be one Chao Egg in each new Garden, with the exception being the Neutral Garden, where there's two Chao Eggs. The Chao Gardens from the Adventure games returns as basic Gardens, but Sega-themed Gardens can be unlocked, as well as a few third-party-themed Gardens.

Chao Evolution

Like in previous games, a Chao can evolve into different forms, depending on its stat distribution and its alignment. Once a Chao undergoes its first evolution, its newfound form becomes permanent until it undergoes rebirth. However, it can change its form slightly throughout the Chao years depending on the Chaos Drives or Animals given to it.


Like Sonic Adventure 2, a Chao can become either a Neutral Chao, a Hero Chao, or a Dark Chao. However, unlike Sonic Adventure 2, in order to lean a Chao to a certain alignment, it no longer requires a player to give it some love during its childhood phase. Instead, a player has to give it either a Neutral Fruit, a Hero Fruit, or a Dark Fruit to lean it to an alignment. Contrary to Sonic Adventure DX, once a child Chao eats one of the three fruits, it instantly changes into one of these forms, but doesn't officially become said form until its first evolution.
