Chibi-Robo! Returns, Bringing An Adorable Amiibo With Him

Chibi-Robo! Returns, Bringing An Adorable Amiibo With Him

This morning's Japanese Nintendo Direct revealed a new side-scrolling platformer Chibi-Robo! game, along with a super-empowering Amiibo companion.

Guru-Guru! Chibi-Robo! (I'm guessing that's Go-Go Chibi-Robo!) looks like it takes everyone's favourite helper robot and transforms him into a more practical sort of Bionic Commando, using his plug and cord as a grappling hook, as you do. Rather than wandering about a 3D world being friendly, he'll be doing things like...well, just watch the trailer.

The Chibi-Robo! Amiibo, due out this fall alongside the 3DS game, will cause Chibi to briefly go Super Saiyan, or Super Sonic, depending on your comparison preference.

It's not the sort of Chibi-Robo! we're used to, but I'm always up for a new platforming hero, especially an old one.


    Can't wait to hear how this amiibo is also read-only.

    Guru guru is actually a sound word for round-n-round or spinning

    Oh look, the sequel to super castlevania! :p

    looks a little bit Sayonara umihara kawase to me

    If it doesn't make it to the West, the chibi-robo amiibo will go for a lot on ebay to the collector crowd.

    Now wondering if he'll be a DLC character for Smash Bros due to having an amiibo figure.

    I loved it on the NDS, I'll definitely grab this.
