Track of the Week: Night Play (Chibi-Robo!)

I got 99 problems, but a dirty floor ain’t one.

A robot’s work is never done. That’s why Chibi-Robo really focuses on his work at night, when there are no humans to get in the way. This week, kick back and listen to the bass heavy anthem of Chibi’s after-dark adventures from 2005’s GameCube game, Chibi-Robo!. We’ve most definitely discussed the game on Nintendojo before, but we must reiterate how much of a hidden gem Chibi-Robo! is. And now’s a good time to track it down after playing the new 3DS eShop game!

It’s not just a game about scrubbing the floor, you know. There’s scrubbing and collecting, combined with themes of aging, domestic issues, and general family angst. Plus, the cast of supporting characters is pretty phenomenal. I’m glad Nintendo didn’t bury Chibi-Robo as another one-off game, and we did get a few follow-ups. Still, you can’t beat the original. So get out there and scrub into the night!
