Nintendo announced a new platformer installment of Chibi-Robo! for the 3DS via a Nintendo Direct release today.
The game series, in which the player must navigate a tiny robot through daily life tasks to make his owners happy, will also introduce a Chibi-Robo! Amiibo to Nintendo’s popular brand of interactive figurines.
Unlike other versions of the game, the 3DS Chibi-Robo! looks to use a side-scrolling platformer approach instead of the free-roaming world of previous games. While completing tasks, Chibi-Robo will use his power cord to unlock special moves.
The 3DS Chibi-Robo! is set for a Fall 2015 release in Japan with no word of other territories.
