Chibi-Robo Zip Lashes Onto Nintendo 3DS


Yes! Chibi-Robo, Nintendo’s loveably diminutive household helper robot, is getting a brand new game for the 3DS.

Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash, set to launch in October, is a side-scrolling platformer in which the eponymous robot uses his tethered power plug to solve puzzles and whip enemies.

Better yet, a bundle with the game and a Chibi-Robo amiibo will be sold at retail. Using the amiibo with the game will transform little Chibi into Super Chibi-Robo for added power in certain stages. Additionally, by saving scores at the end of each stage the amiibo will level up and unlock various in-game collectibles.

Chibi-Robo amiibo is too cute for words!
