Video: “Tiny Trailer” For Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash

Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash is out now in the US and Japan, but is a little less than a month away from release in Europe. To hold fans in the region over, Nintendo has released a short promotional video on their official Nintendo 3DS UK YouTube channel, appropriately named the “Tiny Trailer.”

In its short 30 seconds, the video showcases the destructive cord whipping mechanic, the Chibi-Robo amiibo functionality, and the amiibo bundle that will be available at launch. You can check the trailer out in its miniature glory below. Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash will be released in Europe on November 6th.

  1. If you like 2D platformers and like in game collectibles, buy this game! The reviews are mediocre, but I’m having a blast with it. The mechanics are really fun! The only downside is that there aren’t too many challenging parts, but that doesn’t keep it down IMO.

  2. Just bought a Gamer’s Club Unlocked membership and got this game for only $32. I wasn’t even planning on buying the game, but it was last one on the shelf and I felt the need to give the chibi amiibo a home.

  3. I’m not a Chibi fan. I bought the last one… It was fun, but it’s just not a strong enough IP. I want it to do well, but… I’m afraid Chibi will be like Sonic….only Nintendo will pull the plug. (hell, if they neglect Loved IP’s like Metroid, they sure as hell won’t feel bad putting Chibi out of their misery. :/

    1. In fact, Chibi Robo is a prime example proving that Nintendo only cares about the money at this point. Fuck the fans as long as they got consumers mindlessly buying crap simply because it’s “fun.”

      1. Even more than the “fun” aspect, it’s clear they threw in this amiibo more as a cash grab than anything else; making him supposedly exclusive to the bundle in North America, where more people are likely to get a game just for the amiibo than anywhere else.

      2. “Mindessly buying crap because it’s fun” makes absolutely no sense.
        1) If it’s fun, it’s not crap.
        2) Why the hell else do you buy video games other than to have fun?

  4. The original was all about discovery. A tiny person in a large world, very much like Pikmin, except in a house. It wasn’t all about cleaning. There were clear problems within the family that needed to be resolved. At the time of it’s release, my parents were on the verge of divorce. So seeing the family in the game, made the experience too real for me. And doing things to help fix their relationship really helped me to cope with the problems in my own family. Chibi Robo holds a very special place within my power cells. I would mourn this IP if it were never saw another release.

    1. It’s better this way. Least Chibi-Robo won’t become part of a genre it wasn’t meant to be part of. It’s better it die now then become a platformer game for the rest of it’s existence.
