So, yesterday's thread was mildly amusing while it lasted, and it's a true testament to just how much we're all excited about the upcoming English release of Phantom Hourglass. Of course, Chibi Robo DS is also being released next week, and I'd love to discuss the game. First off, why do you think Nintendo decided to release it alongside Zelda? My own theory -- and it's a weak one, to be sure -- is that they are betting on Walmart customers' love of the impulse buy. The only thing I can come up with is that mom brings Jr. to Wallyworld, so he can get his copy of Phantom Hourglass; mom sees Chibi Robo next to Zelda in the display case, and says, "Hmm...what's this?" Jr. lays the scoop on mom (that which he read on GBATemp), and mom gets it for herself. Like I said, weak...but it's one possibility. Release dates aside, are YOU anticipating this game as well? I know I am. Not as much as Zelda -- no doubt -- but it looks like another off-the-beaten-path-type DS game. I tinkered with the Japanese version, and Chibi Robo definitely has something unique going on.
