Chibi-Robo is one of Nintendo's most adorable characters, and the heroic 10-centimetre-tall robot is making a welcome comeback in Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash on the 3DS. While it might appear like a fairly simple platformer, we found Zip Lash to be fresh, fun, and genuinely charming in our first impressions from E3.

Siliconera recently interviewed the game's Assistant Director, Risa Tabata, along with the series Producer Kensuke Tanabe, to talk about the character's peculiar past and the upcoming 3DS game; it made for quite an entertaining read and we'd recommend that you take a look.

When asked about the possibilities for a Chibi-Robo game on the Wii U, Risa Tabata replied:

Well, one thing we'd be excited about is making Chibi-Robo very, very shiny! Since the system is hi-Definition and all…not just Chibi-Robo, but the environment! Like in Pikmin 3, actually.

It looks like the Chibi-Robo team have certainly given a new home console game some thought. Would you like to see a Chibi-Robo game on the Wii U at some point in the future? In the meantime, are you looking forward to zip lashing with the loveable little robot on the 3DS later this year?
