Kid Icarus Uprising Released and Launch Trailer

Action-packed portable game with airborne and land-based battles, wireless multiplayer modes, augmented-teality features
Kid Icarus Uprising, a Nintendo 3DS game developed by Project Sora, is now available, marking the return of a fan-favourite Nintendo character, the heroic angel Pit, who made his debut in the original Kid Icarus game for the NES console. In Kid Icarus: Uprising, Pit must defend himself against the dark goddess Medusa and her malevolent Underworld Army. With help from Palutena, goddess of light and guardian of the human race, he battles enemies in the air and on the ground as each chapter is divided into Air Battle and Land Battle stages. Players can enhance the action with a nearly unlimited arsenal of collectible weapons, from Bows to Cannons to Claws, each with their own unique characteristics and play style. Players can also fuse weapons together, resulting in a single weapon that takes on some of the characteristics of the original two.
As many as six players with their own Nintendo 3DS systems and Kid Icarus: Uprising game cards can compete against each other in new multiplayer modes. Light vs. Dark mode puts players in a three-on-three battle where they must work with their team and Free-for-All mode is an every-person-for-themselves battle royale. Weapons and skills collected in single player action carry over to multiplayer, giving players an incentive to play stages again and again to collect the best gear for multiplayer skirmishes.
Every Kid Icarus: Uprising game comes with six special AR Cards that let players bring the game’s imaginative characters to life right before their eyes. By scanning the cards with the Nintendo 3DS system’s built-in camera and facing them together, they can watch characters go head to head in AR Card Battle mode.
