Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash to be Released October 9th


Who are you going to call when the Earth and it’s resources are threatened by a group of troublesome aliens? Why, its Chibi-Robo, of course! And he’s here to save the day, starring in his newest adventure, Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash! Exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS, this next title in the Chibi-Robo series is set for launch on October 9th!

Players can utilize Chibi-Robo’s little plug and cord to whip, grapple and swing though this large side-scrolling platformer. He must avoid enemies, and solve tricky environmental puzzles, while exploring vast environments and locating various collectibles as he goes along! The special bundle of this game includes a Chibi-Robo amiibo, which players can use to access bonus features, and unlock Chibi-Robo’s power up, Super Chibi-Robo! This power up increases his speed and watts, which allows him to travel for longer distances, by holding an extra charge. Players can even level up the Chibi-Robo amiibo itself by recording in-game score data. The higher the level of the amiibo, and the more times the player can become Super Chibi-Robo each day during game play, the higher chance the player has to receive rare items from the Toy Capsule Machine (a fun machine within the game that allows players to unlock collectibles and bonus stages).

“With colourful graphics, accessible game play and a lovable main character, Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash is perfect for every member of the family,” Pierre-Paul Trepanier, Nintendo of Nintendo of Canada’s General Manager and Senior Director stated. “It is a terrific addition to the robust series of fun Nintendo games launching between now and the end of year.”

The Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash and Chibi-Robo amiibo bundle will be available October 9th for $49.99, and is exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS!
