A Surprise Chibi-Robo Game Deserves a Surprising Song

Back when I was writing that review of the Super Chibi Knight soundtrack I happened upon a similarly titled, but totally unrelated track on Bandcamp called “Super Chibi Robo”. With the release of his latest adventure in Chibi-Robo: Zip Lash for the 3DS I figured it was finally time to post about it. Because how crazy is it that a non-nerdcore, comedy duo from Boston would latch onto an overlooked GameCube game and make a song about it five years after its release?

It isn’t just the context that surprised me, the song is really quite good. It outlines many of the game’s bizarre characters and their even more bizarre goals in detail that only a true Chibi fan could compose. Musically, it’s quite different with a dark synth and guitar duo backed up by crisp percussion programming and a tinny vocal filter. To me it feels like an homage to the sounds of the 80’s but regardless of influence or inspiration it sounds great.

Give it a listen and let us know what you think about the song or Chibi-Robo in general in the comments.
