Today, during a surprise Nintendo Direct, a new Chibi-Robo title was announced! Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash! Unlike the traditional Chibi-Robo title, this one will be a side-scroller and feature action in addition to the quirky puzzles our friendly robo gets into! Chibi-Robo uses his plug as a whip to attack enemies as well as to reach places he could no get to before. Charging his plug increases its power and length in which it extends. Check out the trailer!
As mentioned, an amiibo compatible with the game is to be released exclusively as a bundle with the launch of this game. We currently know this amiibo can transform Chibo-Robo into Super Chibi-Robo and can be leveled up as well as unlock in-game collectible items.
Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash will be released on the Nintendo 3DS system this October! Come back for more info, here on RL, when its released!
