Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash (and a Chibi-Robo Amiibo) will be released for 3DS in October

Yesterday, Nintendo hosted an extensive Nintendo Direct presentation for Japanese gamers, announcing a variety of new titles. This morning, Nintendo of America released a “Micro” version of that Nintendo Direct with many of the announcements translated into English. And first out of the gate is the announcement of Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash for the 3DS.

Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash is a side-scroller where the plucky little robot uses his cord to whip enemies into submission. But Chibi-Robo is clearly a fan of Indiana Jones, as he can also use the cord to swing from platform to platform or reach distant objects.

A Chibi-Robo Amiibo figure, which will exclusively be sold in a bundle with the game. Tapping the Chibi-Robo Amiibo to your 3DS will unlock Super Chibi-Robo, a stronger and faster version of the main character. According to Nintendo’s Bill Trinen, more Amiibo functionality for Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash will be announced at a later date.

Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash will be available for the 3DS this October.
