After that, Pit must take down enemies on the ground.

During Pit's adventure, players can gather a number of different weapons and treasures.

Beyond the single player experience is the games multiplayer feature. This feature of the game is a team battle mode where two teams clash it out together, taking down point totals as each team member is defeated. If a team loses all it's points the last player to die is revived as a powerful Angel Pit. players must then hunt him down and defeat him to win.
