Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash was a surprising E3 reveal, not only because it was the character's first out-and-out platformer, but the fact that it'll be a full retail title. Nintendo clearly believes that the IP has the potential to be a hit, though, with an amiibo bundle set to accompany the standard release.

Though we were somewhat cautious when it was revealed, we were left impressed in our First Impressions and in subsequent sessions with the initial demo - it's rather like a cute, inoffensive Castlevania, albeit with an extra focus on puzzle platforming. Humorously, the North American official site for the game gives the genre for this one as 'Whipping Platformer', which is a new one on us.

That site also outlines a hefty range of amiibo supported in the game. While the new Chibi-Robo amiibo will unlock a powered up hero and even extra content including levels, the Super Smash Bros., Splatoon and Mario Party 10 range will unlock in-game coins. We suspect this currency will unlock improved abilities and collectibles.

Are you looking forward to this one on 3DS?

Thanks to all that sent this in.
