I didn’t think I’d be excited for Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash, but here I am… looking forward to it.

It’s the design of the robot, I think. That’s what got me into the original GameCube game way back when. I wound up loving that title, but it was the look of the robot that made me give it a shot.

Here’s Chibi in a completely new adventure. This time it’s a 2D platformer. Chibi uses his plug to grapple onto things and swing, climb or do whatever else Nintendo will have him do.

I actually went hands-on with the game at E3 this year, and I wound up liking it quite a bit. You can read my impressions from that demo right here.

Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash will sell for the Nintendo 3DS on October 9, 2015. We’ll have more on the game as it comes.
