Check Out The New Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash Trailer

In anticipation of Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash‘s release, Nintendo has posted a trailer featuring a preview of the title’s gameplay on their YouTube channel. The trailer features the use of the Chibi-Robo! amiibo along with a snippet of Chibi-Robo! in a Mario costume – which may be linked in with the use of the Mario amiibo in-game. The game will also be compatible with plenty of other amiibo which will give you in game coins.

Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash will be released for the Nintendo 3DS on October 11th in the US, and November 6th in Europe. You can watch the trailer over on Nintendo’s YouTube channel here.

  1. “PEZ Heads Bears”?? Did I just see actual product placement in a Nintendo game? And for something so nonsensical and ephemeral that by this time next year no one will remember it existed and it’ll only exist in the game… huh. Well played.

    1. It was explained a while back that this would be a thing. You go around the world in the game, and as Chibi Robo is tiny, he couldn’t realistically collect popular monuments from the places he goes as they’re too big, so they decided on snacks as a way of landmarking within the game, as everyone loves snacks, and people would find it cool to find one of their favourite snacks within the game. It wouldn’t be the first time Nintendo popped product placement into a first party game :P

  2. Game looks decent. Looks like an e-shop game tho the graphics are kind of crappy. I was expecting more from a 1st party title but I’ll wait till reviews come out I’m a little skeptical still.

  3. looks ok i guess. the hole ‘zip-lashing’ from platform to platform looks more like it just draws out the stage’s abit to much to me but mea

  4. Man… I do love that little robot and Photo Finder was actually a lot of fun. This one really does look like someone played a lot of Kirby’s Return to Dreamland and Triple Deluxe for inspiration, which isn’t a bad thing, but it seems to be lacking something. I love that they’re bringing the quirky supporting characters back and the Zip-Lash is a pretty neat mechanic. I can’t help but want that freaking amiibo as well… Ah what the heck, I’ll snag it.

      1. The Lieutenant you remember is gone. I am a machine. Built upon from the scraps of fallen enemy and brethren… I have evolved.All that remains of me that you would know are my spine, and my skull. Most of my brain along with it’s memories have been replaced by synthetic processors. So I do not remember you.
