Paper Mario: Sticker Star was primarily an Intelligent Systems product, but Vanpool worked on the game as well. Nintendo’s Kensuke Tanabe recently said that Vanpool ended up on Sticker Star since help was needed to make its 2012 launch.

Vanpool is now contributing to Chibi-Robo!: Zip-Lash alongside Skip. Taro Kudo, a director at the company, previously worked at Square and Love-de-Lic with Skip’s founders.


The developers of Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash have once again commented on the decision to make the game a platformer as opposed to an adventure experience.

In an interview with Nintendo World Report, producer Risa Tabata explained:

“That was sort of our hint to focus on the action types of things. For the previous Chibi-Robo games, we had more of the adventure aspect. And for those who are really big fans of Chibi-Robo, it was great. People loved it, but we couldn’t quite say that it was widely known by a lot of people. So we wanted to branch out and explore more things.”

Nintendo producer Kensuke Tanabe added that a platformer “would be a great place to expand that fanbase” in America.
