And Kensaku Google’s data for mini-games where players would guess which search terms were more popular. Nintendo only designed support for Japanese characters and search terms. Well, until now.

New Chibi-Robo Is Like Classic Chibi-Robo

By Spencer . July 2, 2009 . 2:25pm

Fans of Chibi-Robo should enjoy Okaeri! Chibi-Robo! Happy Rich Oosouji. The two games are pretty similar. Players pick up trash, sweep floors, and do chores to keep Jenny and her family happy.

Like other games in the New Play Control! lineup Nintendo revamped Chibi-Robo with motion control. In this version you point with the remote and click to make the tiny robot move. Originally, players controlled Chibi Robo with the analog stick on a Gamecube pad.

Art Style DSiWare Game Decoded For International Release

By Spencer . March 16, 2009 . 8:23am

After working on Chibi Robo and Captain Rainbow, Skip focused their efforts on Nintendo’s Art Style series. Three Art Style games have been released on WiiWare domestically: Orbient, Cubello, Rotohex. Strangely none of them have been released in Japan. Skip’s home country got their first taste of Art Style from the DSiWare store.   Decode, […]

Chibi-Robo Developers Were, At One Time, Planning A FPS

By Spencer . December 8, 2008 . 1:47pm

Skip is one of the most sanguine video game studios around. This company was behind the pleasant, but unreleased in North America, Giftpia and delightful Chibi-Robo. Sure, Chibi-Robo shoots mecha-spiders with an arm cannon, but it’s still hard to imagine jovial Skip dabbling with the first person shooter genre. What happened to the project?   […]

Captain Rainbow gives a nod to Link

By Spencer . August 28, 2008 . 10:18am

Minmin Island is a home for washed up video game characters waiting for a wish to come true. Link doesn’t fit in here, but Skip has snuck in a reference Legend of Zelda fans should get. See it in the clip below.   [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-CRdCuc4ik[/youtube]   Two more Skip created characters are joining the cast of […]

Unreleased point and Chibi-Robo

By Spencer . May 9, 2008 . 4:05pm

Skip released Chibi-Robo on the Gamecube, but not the Chibi-Robo seen in these videos. This gameplay footage is taken from a Chibi-Robo beta where the tiny hero emerged from an orange Gamecube in an inventor’s lab.   [youtube]http://youtube.com/watch?v=s4WBdmKCW7I[/youtube]   Notice the moving cursor? In this build Chibi-Robo had point and click style controls. It looks […]

Let’s look at LOL with Agetec

By Spencer . April 10, 2008 . 1:27pm

Yesterday, we saw Agetec listed LOL for sale “online only.” LOL will be “hard to find.” When I asked Hiro Fukuoka, the Producer of LOL at Agetec, he candidly confirmed there is a limited supply of LOL for North America. I’m still surprised we’re getting any localized copies.   What is LOL? Let’s skip to […]

LOL not laughing its way to retail?

By Spencer . April 9, 2008 . 3:28pm

I was wondering how Agetec planned on distributing LOL (aka Archime DS). Since the game requires other people to play, LOL didn’t strike me as a title retailers were lining up to place orders for. My guess was it would be a Gamestop exclusive. Chris over from Cosmos Gaming  (thanks for the tip!!) discovered LOL’s […]

Laugh out loud with Archime DS

By Spencer . March 15, 2008 . 12:30am

Agetec sent an e-mail officially announcing LOL, a localized version of a Skip published game Archime DS. Skip created Chibi-Robo and the cheerful, but woefully lost in translation (read: never been localized) Giftpia. LOL sticks to Skip’s light hearted tone and it challenges players to write humorous responses to each other via local wireless play. […]

It comes out next week in Japan and Nintendo already has English screenshots of the Chibi Robo: Park Patrol to see. In the new gallery you can see Chibi-Robo driving a buggy, watering plants with his “squirter” and dancing with a boom box to make flowers produce seed.   Chibi Robo: Park Patrol takes place […]
