Chibi-Robo! Is Back In A New Augmented Reality 3DS Game

The adorable Chibi-Robo! is back in his latest adventure for the 3DS. The cute little robot made a name for himself on the GameCube and DS with a series of adventures based around helping people. For those who have experienced Chibi's adventures on both the GameCube and Nintendo DS, there is no denying the series charm and his new 3DS eShop quest adds in the underutilized AR (Augmented Reality) function of Nintendo's popular portable.

In Chibi-Robo! Photo Finder, you are tasked with helping a Curator who needs exhibit's for his Museum. As the tiny robot you must seek out real world objects and photograph them with the 3DS camera which turns the items into in-game objects called NostalJunk to display in the Museum. It's a brilliantly simple concept that makes perfect use of the system's unique abilities while giving fans a fresh new adventure which will be available January 9, 2014. While many complain that Nintendo doesn't create new IP's, this is a perfect example of that Nintendo magic at work with something fresh and new. For those unfamiliar with the adventures of Chibi-Robo!, I urge you to seek out and experience at least one of his adventures as he is one of Nintendo's more charming new characters (The Nintendo DS game Chibi-Robo! Park Patrol is the easier game to get your hands on and it's 100% 3DS compatible). Enjoy and be sure to try the Demo on the 3DS eShop!
