Okaeri! Chibi-Robo! Happy Richie Ōsōji! (おかえり!ちびロボ!ハッピーリッチー大そうじ! lit. "Welcome Home Little Robo! Happy, Rich Big Sweep!"?) is a video game developed by Skip Ltd. for the Nintendo DS handheld game console. It is the third title in the Chibi-Robo! series published by Nintendo. The game is preceded by Chibi-Robo!, originally released on the Nintendo GameCube in 2005, and Chibi-Robo!: Park Patrol, released for the Nintendo DS in 2007.

Gameplay[edit]

The gameplay in Okaeri! Chibi-Robo! Happy Richie Ōsōji! is similar to the original Chibi-Robo!. The player takes control of the titular character, a 10 centimeter-tall robot whose job is to clean the inside of a house to make his family happy.[1] Chibi-Robo is owned by Jenny from the previous game, who is now all grown up and living in a house with her son Keith and dog Lucky. The game introduces a tiny vacuum cleaner that Chibi-Robo can use to suck up dirt while connected to a power outlet and a tiny sifter used to find gems which can be turned in for money. The player can use the money to buy furniture for the house over a home shopping network using the telephone.[1] The main difference from the original games in the series, is that instead of just having power outlets which let the player charge Chibi-Robo's battery, they need to put rubbish into a trash compactor to get electricity for the outlets.

Reception[edit]

The game received a high 34 out of 40 from Weekly Famitsu magazine in Japan.[2] It was the fifth best-selling game in Japan during the week of its release, selling 35,000 units.[3] It fell to number nine the following week, selling 23,000 copies.[4] Regional sales of the game totalled 130,092 units in 2009.[5]
