Nintendo 3DS owners will soon be able to get their hands on the new Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash game coming to the system tomorrow. Zip Lash is the latest title in the Chibi-Robo! series and it’s up to you, the player, to assist him in his latest adventures.
When Earth’s resources are in danger from a mischievous group of aliens, there’s only one robot with the skill to save the world!
Using his plug and cord, Chibi-Robo can whip, grapple and swing his way through a huge side-scrolling platformer filled with dangerous enemies and clever environmental puzzles. And by scanning the Chibi-Robo amiibo figure that is included with a special bundle, players can access bonus features like the ability to power up to Super Chibi-Robo, increasing Chibi-Robo’s speed and watts and allowing him to travel for longer distances without having to charge up.
Honestly, I have never played a Chibi-Robo game before, but I really like the look of this one. For many people who may be in the same situation as I am, Nintendo has made sure you do not feel left out with this latest game.
“With colorful graphics, accessible game play and a lovable main character, Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash is perfect for every member of the family,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “It is a terrific addition to the robust series of fun Nintendo games launching between now and the end of year.”
I have noticed some fans of the series are a little reserved about this entry due to the shift in direction from the adventuring 3D style to the traditional 2D platforming style of Zip Lash. I can appreciate their perspective, but honestly it caught my attention more with the new style, so in the end, I hope the series fans will still at least give it a chance, and those like me who have never played the series but are intrigued by it will indeed pick it up.
Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash launches tomorrow, Friday, October 9 in North America at the suggested retail price of $29.99, and each copy of the game comes with the adorable Chibi-Robo amiibo, as well.
Do you plan on picking up Chibi-Robo Zip Lash this weekend? Have you played any of the previous entries in the series? Are you one of the fans who is reserved about this game? Let me know in the comments section.
As always, gaming is meant to be fun, so keep gaming!!
