Helpful Chibi-Robo with a heart of gold is back and looking for NostalJunk beginning January 9. Revealed during today's Nintendo Direct, the new game, Chibi-Robo Photo Finder, will be exclusive to the Nintendo eShop, where a demo will also launch "soon."

The game tasks players with a real-life photo hunt, as they take photos of objects based on silhouettes with their 3DS, which are then incorporated into the game. NostalJunk Challenges will also be added shortly after launch, along with some insane-looking minigames. No word yet when actual Chibi-Robos will be produced for home use.
