Nintendo started off June in a huge way, announcing a massive slew of games. One of them includes a brand new installment of the Chibi-Robo franchise called Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash. This is the first Chibi-Robo to hit the 3DS since the 3DS eShop-exclusive Chibi-Robo!: Photo Finder from 2013.
This Nintendo 3DS effort will see players take Chibi-Robo on a side-scrolling adventure. He'll take advantage of the fact that he's a plug-in robot and use his cord to whip enemies into oblivion. He can also use his plug to swing across platforms, as well as solve puzzles.
Given that Chibi-Robo is a tiny robot, it's almost a no-brainer that Nintendo will also develop an Amiibo for the character, as well. Using the Amiibo in conjunction with Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash will turn the character into Super Chibi-Robo for certain stages, while also saving high scores to the figure. These high scores will then unlock various items and extras.
Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash and the Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash Amiibo bundle are set to release on 3DS in October. More information about the Chibi-Robo Amiibo is coming soon.
