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.
Notice the moving cursor? In this build Chibi-Robo had point and click style controls. It looks like the goal or at least one of the goals is finding batteries scattered in the lab. Let’s see what happens next.
This version of Chibi-Robo seems like it could work well with touch screen control or maybe the Wii remote. Unfortunately, I don’t think we’re going to see Chibi-Robo appear for some time. Chibi-Robo: Park Patrol could have sold well in North America being sequestered to Wal-Mart.
