Chibi Robo: Park Patrol – Walmart exclusive?

GameSpot checked in with Nintendo for an update on Chibi Robo: Park Patrol for DS. They got an interesting response:

Chibi Robo: Park Patrol will launch October 2. The game, which features an adorable miniature robot who wants to clean up the environment, will be available exclusively at Wal-Mart stores nationwide.

I’m not the biggest Walmart fan, but I’m definitely glad to hear the game is still getting a US release! Are you surprised at this exclusive retailer move by Nintendo?
