There are children here? Where? Cause I don't know of any who are children here; since no one said they'd lick their 3DS clean & a child would do it in an instant (impo). Razz ... I'm still so not interested in this game thou. XD

Looks like Chibi-Robo: Zip Lash is a full price game, and even more if you own the Amiibo. Based on Nintendo World preorder receipt:



$49.99 with Amiibo? Hm...not sure the game looks worth full price. But hopefully there's more to it?...

While the game is listed on every website for $30. The amiibo bundle will likely end up being $40 though and the $50 was a mistake.

We also now know what the other amiibo do.

So, the official Japanese site updated their amiibo compatibility chart (http://www.nintendo.co.jp/amiibo/sof...ilityChart.pdf) and in it contains some interesting details.

We all know how the Chibi Robo specific amiibo works (levelling up Chibi Robo and unlocking the Toy Capsule Machine), but now we know what the non Chibi Robo amiibo do.

First, scanning any amiibo will get you coins to spend on items in the game, which we knew beforehand however, we do now know that there is additional functionality for all amiibo except Pikachu, Lucario, Charizard, Greninja, Jigglypuff, Sonic, Pac-man or Mega Man.

If you scan them, you can then access the Toy Capsule Machine which may give you a special figurine of Chibi Robo doing the pose of the amiibo in question. (Thanks to StreetsAhead for clarifying)

Pretty cute functionality.

I guess that's pretty cool and it seems like the Pokemon support  was a one time deal for the Pokemon Company.

The Pokemon Amiibo are never supported, lol. Either way, although it's nothing major, it's nice that there's added support for every Amiibo.

Meh, it looks entertaining enough, but I don't think I'm going to get it until I have nothing much to play and it's price goes down. I DO still want the Amiibo though. I need it.

Chibi-Robo: Zip Lash will be the last Chibi-Robo title if it sells poorly.

To be honest, this might be the last chance for us. I’ve continually thought about ways to build this into a mainstream success. We’ve challenged ourselves in assorted ways along those lines, but I can’t say that we’ve found the answer yet.

The first thing we decided upon was that we’d make an action game that took advantage of his plug and cord. We then placed the core of the gameplay on using it like a grappling hook, throwing it into a faraway edge and using that to traverse gaps and so on. As we kept thinking about ideas, we naturally settled on the 2D side-scrolling format. If the character can gain more recognition, I believe we’ll have a chance to produce another adventure-style game for a large number of people. I’m hoping that we made the right choice for this game’s play style.

Ugh, this game looks terrible, but I LOVE Chibi-Robo, I'd hate to see him die out... :/

This game doesn't look terrible, it looks pretty good.
I hope it sells well, I've always enjoyed Chibi-Robo, if it sells well, he could be in line for the next Smash game.

Okay maybe terrible was exaggerating, but I really don't think it looks like anything special. I'm sure it's enjoyable to play through to some extent, but doesn't really seem interesting compared to similar games. But I guess I haven't played the game, maybe the whip is used creatively.

It sure looks more enjoyable then the photo game that came out a while ago and the game should do decent with the amiibo at least.

Even the Gamecube game did not sell that great back in the day and we all know that 2D games are some of the best selling games out there.

It seems like a new 3d Chibi-Robo game would have too difficult?


A chief director at Nintendo says a new 3D Chibi-Robo! game would have been too difficult for small children, and wouldn’t have been accessible enough.



http://nintendonews.com/2015/10/new-3d-chibi-robo-game-too-difficult/

I never knew that many kids played the series. I also think part of the reason was that the 3DS could not handle a regular 3D game.

What?
It's supposed to be difficult...
That's disappointing.

Implying that kids play Chibi-Robo, lol. I can't believe that's their reasoning for making it a 2D platformer. That's a pretty lame excuse, a 3D game would've been much more enjoyable. :/ I love the original Chibi-Robo.
