Chibi-Robo Vacuums Riches On The DS

imageNintendo stealth announced a new Chibi-Robo game for the DS slated to come out later this month and they still haven’t said anything about it. Doing a little digging we discovered this upcoming Chibi-Robo game gives the little robot a little vacuum cleaner.


In Okaeri! Chibi-Robo! Happy Rich Oosouji (loosely Welcome Home Chibi-Robo! Happy, Rich Big Sweep) players plug-in to dust patrol. When you vacuum dirt you also get riches! Money can be spent on new tools for Chibi-Robo, but the altruistic robot’s goal is to make others happy. So, you can also use money and play interior designer in Jenny’s home.


Chibi-Robo learns the saying one man’s trash is another man’s treasure on July 23 in Japan. Nintendo of America has not announced plans to publish Okaeri! Chibi-Robo! Happy Rich Oosouji at this time.

  • As someone who purchased the only Chibi-Robo release here in NA (the Wal-Mart exclusivity didn’t help the game sell..), I had some decent fun with it. The game was quite fugly, but man, it was chibi-robo on the DS!

    • Park Patrol had a strange palette, but Chibi-Robo is awesome so I’m glad the character is kicking with new games.

  • Yay for Chibi Robo. I hope Nintendo brings this one over as well – Chibi Robo Park Patrol was an adorable game.

  • So it’s closer to the GC original then? I didn’t like Park Patrol too much but found the first game to be one of the best games on the system.

    Either way more Chibi Robo is great and looking forward to this anyways. ^_^

    • Good question! Nintendo hasn’t said anything so all I have is a little blurb from a Japanese retailer. It sounds like there are less tasks, though. Perhaps, this is a mix of The Sims interior design and Chibi Robo?

    I hoping both this game and the Wii version of the orginal game will come to the US. This is one of Nintendo’s most underrated series IMO.

  • I don’t know why Nintendo doesn’t seem to want to promote this series in the US. With the Wal-Mart exclusivity and all they seemed to be cutting themselves off from the audience that would buy it. A Toys-R-Us exclusive like Soul Bubbles was might have been better, but I still really feel if they marketed Chibi Robo right (during Saturday morning cartoons or something) they could make it into a big series that kids and adults both enjoy.

    I’m going to cry if we don’t get this Chibi Robo. I’ll cry and then import it.
    I’m glad it’s more like the original, and I hope it has all the charm.
    And I wonder if Drake Redcrest will make a return at all, or if we’ll get a new hero. (I want both~.)
