Kid Icarus: Uprising

After all those years of wait and a more than small cameo in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Pit will return for yet another adventure.

Kid Icarus: Uprising

You can not imagine the volume of my screams during Nintendo's 3DS revealing trailer at E3 2010. I was like: "Dude, what's that blue medusa doing there? Give me Mario or Kirby or- WHAT THE FUC- KID ICARUS! WHOOOHOOO!" Yeah, that was pretty intense. I loved the old games. I think I even played a Game Boy version.

Pit is back in Kid Icarus: Uprising, coming exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS.
The aforementioned "medusa" will be the villain in this game. She apparently has done some reaaally bad things so it's your job to put an end to her. From the looks of several gameplay trailers, the game will (for the most part) be played as a third person-flying-grinding-shooting-bullet hell-action adventure game. Sounds good to me. Basically, you dodge stuff, shoot stuff and ultimately kill stuff. IN 3D!

The game looks great, runs smoothly and looks really sharp around the edges. You can already see that this game has had a huge amount of work put into. Nintendo probably wants to make this one count. After some disappointments in the home console department, they try to dish out as much fan service as possible. And I love it. Just watch that trailer. Pit even says "Sorry to keep you waiting!".

This will be awesome. Battling a gigantic cerberus while constantly having fireballs being shot right in your face. Not sure about the red 3DS, though.
Kid Icarus: Uprising has yet to receive a definite release date.


  1. It's about time they made another kid icarus

  2. Well, a lot of people demanded this. Nintendo can't always come up with casual games and shovelware.

  3. Cant wait for this, I hope they come out with a new warioware I love those.

  4. I can't wait for the 3DS. I already have it pre ordered.

    Has anyone else noticed how similar this game looks to Sin and Punishment?
