Reader Neal is a man on a mission. When hearing that Chibi Robo: Park Patrol was a Wal-Mart exclusive, he got on his computer and fired off an email to Nintendo questioning Wal-Mart's commitment as a "green company" and Nintendo's press release stating as much. Well, Nintendo cared enough about his ...

Let's think of a release that most of you are probably knee-deep in? Tough one, right? Well, we're fairly confident that it's none other than ... The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night. Yup, out of the long list of games that released, we're absolutely certain that's the game you're playing. If we h...

The Wal-Mart exclusive, environmentally conscious sequel to Chibi-Robo came out this week, and the reviews seem to be hovering around the low-to-mid 80's (with Eurogamer as an outlier). We find that sometimes we like the kind of games that inhabit that space, since it usually means they're solid a...

Nintendo has announced another out-of-the-box promotional effort for Chibi-Robo: Park Patrol, this time focusing on the environmental theme. The game is about improving parks, and what improves outdoor areas more than a nice tree? To that end, Nintendo will send out 500 trees to a random selectio...

A GoNintendo reader received this Chibi-Robo: Park Patrol bookmark at school. It has a feature that the DS game can't possibly have: scents. We assume that scratching the adorable-faced flower things releases a delightful floral scent. This is the best scratch-and-sniff game item since the CyberSn...

Nintendo's list of playable Wii games at this year's Penny Arcade Expo may be somewhat lacking-- Fire Emblem and stuff that's already out-- but there's enough of interest on the DS to keep us occupied. We're very excited that the new Zelda game will be on display, as it's been getting some extreme...

The rumor that Chibi-Robo: Park Patrol was cancelled is totally false. Well, mostly totally false. Gamespot contacted a Nintendo rep in order to verify the rumor, and got a surprising response. "Chibi Robo: Park Patrol will launch October 2. The game, which features an adorable miniature robot who w...

GAME Watch seems to have loved Chibi-Robo: Park Patrol. They enjoyed cleaning up the park and arranging it to their liking, saying that, in the end, they wished for a multiplayer mode because they wanted to be able to show off their work. We had a little trouble getting through the review for some r...

Fans of the super-cute Gamecube adventure Chibi-Robo (both of you) have been waiting with bated breath for the DS sequel, Park Patrol, ever since it was first shown at E3 2006. But there's been a bit of confusion over when the game, which came out in Japan earlier this month, will actually be reachi...

A NeoGAFfer called TurtleSnatcher got a call from his local GameStop asking him to transfer his Chibi-Robo: Park Patrol preorder payment to another game, because, according to "corporate," the US release had been cancelled. Terrible news if true, but a GAF post about a call from GameStop is about as...

The NeoGAF forums have been flooded with a variety of boxarts for upcoming Japanese DS titles. Such titles include Chibi Robo Park Patrol, It's a Wonderful World and the above, EA's Bartender DS. Personally, we could use Bartender DS, as our mixed drinks are anything but, well ... drinkable. So, i...

This commercial for Chibi Robo: Park Patrol is really, really short. Fifteen seconds. It also shows no real game footage at all. But it's about Chibi Robo, which we really don't see or hear enough about. Also it's got some creepy flower things in it! It's mostly just great to see Nintendo putting ...

The Japanese site for Chibi Robo Park Patrol has launched, chock full of goodies for the aspiring park patroller. There are character breakdowns, screens and indecipherable text. Well, not entirely indecipherable, but the machine translation at Google isn't the best, so relaying any of the translat...

Famitsu has posted a variety of different screens for the upcoming DS installment in the Chibi Robo franchise, Chibi Robo: Park Patrol. These screens show a lot of what you'd expect; a small robot rides a bike and meets some oddball characters. So, while there isn't much here in the way of new conte...

If you're near a Best Buy store, gather up your $2 bills and get going, because they're in the midst of an epic videogame clearance, and you'll want to get there before the unscrupulous speculator types grab all the stuff to sacrifice to the ravenous eBay. You've got to be wily to get to the goods b...

If breakdancing refreshed dying flowers out in the real world, gardening would be a hell of a lot more fun. We can't wait to try it out in the upcoming Chibi-Robo!: Park Patrol, the DS sequel that pits our favorite tiny household robot against killer plants in the great outdoors. Since we have absol...

We can only guess that it wasn't enough for the DS to steamroll everything and everyone in 2006. Nintendo wants to own 2007, as well. Not that we're complaining; after all, we are total slaves to our beloved handheld. But it just seems altogether crazy that there could be so many lists predicting gr...

Lumines Live! (XBLA) On a big screen with surround sound, Q Entertainment's Lumines Live was easily the most-played game in my library (if you stretch the definition of library to digitally distributed titles). Although I railed against how microtransactions were implemented in this title and stil...
