Chibi-Robo developer Skip possibly closed, based on new findings

Skip has been making games since the start of the 2000s. The studio has worked on various titles including the Art Style series, but is most known for the Chibi-Robo franchise. Unfortunately, things are’t looking good for the company.

The first piece of evidence concerns Skip’s website, which can no longer be accessed and simply brings up an error. Another troubling sign is that Skip’s name is missing entirely from the street placard where the studio was previously located, and it looks like another company now occupies that space. CEO Hiroshi Suzuki has also removed the official website from his Twitter bio.

There were concerns about Skip’s status last year, but these latest findings are certainly more concrete. Although there’s been no official notice regarding the company’s closure, things aren’t looking good at the moment.
