Far from little, Chibi Robo media explosion

This article is over 17 years old and may contain outdated information

Now that the Phantom Hourglass is out Nintendo’s Japanese branch is focusing on Chibi Robo: Park Patrol. GoNintendo noticed the official site opened up with a series of gameplay videos. The bottom screen is used as an all-purpose control panel where you select items and perform actions. Just like the Gamecube game, Chibi Robo uses a syringe to water plants and in Park Patrol you squirt water by sliding the plunger up on the touch screen. Also check out the new Chibi Robo: Park Patrol ad where you can see some of the other characters and watch him ride a bike.

While Chibi Robo was one of my favorite Gamecube games something doesn’t look right about Chibi Robo: Park Patrol. The colors obnoxiously clash with one another and it doesn’t make the game more cheerful. Hopefully the bright pastel palette won’t detract from Chibi Robo’s charm too much. I want to see a Nintendo Wii version of Chibi Robo in the future where you control him like a remote control car with the Wii remote.
