A new Chibi-Robo! game, complete with amiibo, is coming to the 3DS

Nintendo has announced a new Chibi-Robo game during this morning's Nintendo Direct, and of course there is an amiibo on the way as well.

"Everyone’s favorite little robot is back, this time in a side-scrolling action game!" Nintendo's promotional materials state.

"In Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash, Chibi-Robo must swing his plug to whip enemies, reach far-off platforms and solve environmental puzzles, as well as collect upgrades to extend his plug for getting hard-to-reach collectibles and uncovering hidden areas. Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash will launch exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems this October."

Chibi-Robo! first saw release on the GameCube, and starred a little robot who had to manage its power consumption while helping a family around the house.

The amiibo for the game will launch "exclusively" in a bundle with the game.

"This new amiibo transforms Chibi-Robo into the all-powerful Super Chibi-Robo in certain stages in the game," Nintendo explains. "In addition, players can level up this Chibi-Robo amiibo to acquire a variety of in-game collectible figures and items by saving their scores at the end of each stage. More details about this special amiibo will be revealed in the future."
