Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash Releasing This October With Special amiibo
We haven't heard much from the Chibi-Robo series in quite some time, so the news that there's an upcoming release for Western audience is pretty surprising. I've never even played a Chibi-Robo before, so the news is pretty important to me. Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash was announced both during yesterday's Japanese Nintendo Direct and during the Nintendo Micro Direct early this morning and it's headed for an October release in North America and Europe this November.
What's more, a special edition amiibo figure will be released alongside the game. You can use it in the game to transform the already adorable Chibi-Robo into Super Chibi-Robo for specific stages. Just like the other amiibo figures in games like Super Smash Bros. and the like, you can level up the amiibo to eventually acquire additional in-game collectible items and figures.
The game itself will follow Chibi-Robo as he whips enemies, swings from platform to platform, and generally is totally cute and adorable. Seriously, just look at him.
This might be the first Chibi-Robo I pull the trigger on. How about you?
