The Chibi-Robo! Zip-Lash Opening Video Is Too Cute For Words
Chibi-Robo is one of the cutest things I've ever seen, and I can't believe I've never played it until now. Chibi-Robo! Zip-Lash is out and it even features its very own amiibo. The opening video showcases just how adorable this little platformer really is, and near the end features some truly awesome electronica that gets me inappropriately excited for the actual game. I'll be throwing a review up here on Modojo as soon as I can, but for now you can check out a little of what you might be seeing when you get your hands on a copy.
Watch Chibi-Robo use his cute little extension cord to propel him to places he can't quite reach with his little body, then a fun little vignette where he's brushing a spaceship with a toothbrush for some inexplicable reason and meeting with a little spastic robot who shows him the news all told in Simlish. It probably doesn't make a lot of sense out of context, but the opening does a great job of grabbing your attention and holding it.
Hopefully this will result in more Chibi-Robo games in the West here on out, but the jury is still out on whether or not that'll happen. Let's keep the hope alive!
