When Earth’s resources are in danger from a mischievous group of aliens, there’s only one robot with the skill to save the world. That robot’s name is Chibi-Robo, and he’s the star of the new game Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash, launching exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS on October 9th. Using his plug and cord, Chibi-Robo can whip, grapple and swing his way through a side-scrolling platformer filled with enemies and environmental puzzles. By scanning the Chibi-Robo amiibo figure that is included in the special bundle, players can access bonus features like the ability to power up to Super Chibi-Robo, increasing Chibi-Robo’s speed and watts and allowing him to travel for longer distances without having to charge up.
Capcom has released a new gameplay video showcasing the fast-paced close quarters combat from Umbrella Corps. Two squads from the development team in Capcom Japan duke it out in 3 vs. 3 competitive team battles in the third-person shooter’s One Life Match Mode. In this mode, players must defeat the opposing team in a 3-minute time limit without any option to re-spawn.
The video also shows off the non-traditional arsenal of weapons in Umbrella Corps that offer a twist on the traditional gun and grenade loadout. The “Brainer” melee axe can be charged up and used as a one-hit kill attack and the “Zombie Jammer” adds an extra variable to the mix. When this is intact, zombies will not attack, but if it’s damaged either by a calculated or errant shot, that player will become instant zombie fodder.
Umbrella Corps will be available for the PlayStation 4 and PC in 2016.
