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.
Nintendo is also tacking motion control on some Chibi-Robo chores. You slide the remote forward and backwards to scrub paw prints with a toothbrush. Another screenshot suggests the shooting scenes have been remade into a mini light gun game.
Wii de Asobu Chibi-Robo is scheduled for release in Japan on June 11. A domestic release has not been announced, but we’re betting that New Play Control! Chibi-Robo will be on Nintendo’s 2009 release list.
