The lights are on
Nintendo has announced a new Chibi-Robo title exclusively for the 3DS called Chibi-Robo Photo Finder.
The game (currently out in Japan) is based around Chibi-Robo helping to start up a new museum (assumedly in the future) dedicated to today's ordinary objects called NostalJunk. Chibi collects NostalJunk for the museum by taking photos of real-life objects with your 3DS camera and matching these objects with silhouettes provided in the game.
Photo Finder will also have community-based challenges on the eShop based around the game's photo/silhouette mechanic.
A free demo will be available at some undisclosed point at the 3DS eShop in advance of the game' appearance in the eShop on January 9.
