Amidst the exciting reveal of Nintendo's new hardware, the 3DS, they set to shock us further with the announcement of a title that many have wanted for a long time. Enter Kid Icarus: Uprising a brand new title exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS system.
The last Kid Icarus was released 25 years ago, now Pit will feature in his own new title on the 3DS. Now on the wide-screen marvel, Pit has the power to fly for a maximum of five minutes where he has epic air battles to get to his destination then his battle will carry out on whilst on foot. Baring his trusty bow-blades, Pit will take on a host of enemies in order to protect cities and other landmarks.
Mashiro Sakurai, the man behind Kirby and Super Smash Bros., and now at the forefront of Kid Icarus explained that he felt the controls on the DS were slightly sluggish and wanted to bring a 'standard but new' approach - by being able to move the character and the camera at the same time for better reaction time; Pit is now even easier than ever to control on Nintendo's new technology, the 3DS.
What are your expectations for Kid Icarus? Where you surprised at the announcement of such an old gem?
