Kid Icarus: Uprising is the latest installement in a series that has only had two games, one on NEs, and another on Gameboy.
Now Nintendo's brought Kid Icarus back after 19 years. The game everyone thought they'd be playing as a launch title should be coming out in early 2012, almost a year after is was speculated to release.
OH LOOK, A TRAILER.
AND ACTUAL WORDS FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO AREN'T LAZY.
Essentially, the game will boil down to levels comprised of three distinct segments:
Flying: You have 5 minutes (or three, I need comfirmation of this) to shoot your way through an on rails flying segment.
Land: You have free reign over your movement, and can shoot and do melee attacks and stuff.
Boss battles: Self explanatory.
The game has a 3 on 3 multiplayer death match or team "protect the leader" games.
AR cards are sold seperately to compete in Yu-gi-oh style card battles.
When I first saw this game at E3 2010, the graphics were so nice, they looked like a Wii game. I really hope this game looks nice in 3D.
The gameplay I have full confidance in, Conisdering the guy behind the Kirby series and the Smash Bros series is leading the dev team.
