Gun Gun Pixies for Nintendo Switch really needs a Chibi-Robo crossover

Gun Gun Pixies for Nintendo Switch
Chibi Robo was pretty helpful as a household helper robot. I'm sure his help and tidiness would be welcomed in most girl's dorms.
When you see cute anime girls adorning a video game cover, the 'M' rating firms up any speculations of the game's content. Gun Gun Pixies isn't intended for the Hello Kitty crowd. These games don't usually garner my attention, but this one - billed as a third-person shooter - did due to the size of the main characters and their likeness to one of my favorite Gamecube titles.

Usamaeru and Kamerieru travel to earth to study humans with the hope of using this info to save their home planet. However, their "study" practices seem more akin to why we have restraining orders, here on Earth. Their planet's salvation seems to rely on info gathered from exploring a girl's dorm.

The two main characters are quite tiny compared to the occupants of Earth's many girl's dorms. The images I saw instantly reminded me of Chibi-Robo, one of my favorite games on Gamecube. Chibi-Robo is a tiny helper in a Japanese home where he undertakes various chores. Size-wise he's about the same size as Gun gun Pixies' Usamaeru and Kamerieru.

He'd fit right in, and I'm sure most girls would welcome his help when it comes to keeping their rooms clean!
