Good crossover potential
There are a few GameCube titles I regret missing. Cubivore is one of them. Chibi-Robo! is another. The latter series has managed to live on through handheld spinoffs, and there’s a new on the way. The games star a miniature robot who, come to think of it, would be a natural fit for the similarly small-scale, also cute Pikmin universe. Nintendo World Report floated the idea to Nintendo at E3.
“That’s an interesting idea, and something I could speak to Mr. Miyamoto about a collaboration,” Nintendo producer Kensuke Tanabe told the outlet.
Now, I’m sure nothing will come of this, but it sure is fun to imagine.
