Kid Icarus: Uprising

released on Mar 22, 2012

One of the most beloved franchises in Nintendos long history makes its glorious return in spectacular 3D! Pit of Kid Icarus fame is back in a new game designed specifically for the Nintendo 3DS system, by Masahiro Sakurai, creator of the Kirby and Super Smash Bros. franchises, and his development team at Project Sora.

Kid Icarus: Uprising is a fast-paced and action-packed blend of aerial and ground-based shooting built on elegantly intuitive and streamlined play control. This follow-up to the original Kid Icarus released for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1987 has been at the top of gamers wish lists for years.

Boasting gameplay that is easy to pick up but incredibly deep, the game is sure to satisfy novice gamers as well as fans who have been clamouring for a new installment in the franchise.

The hero, Pit, teams up with Palutena, the goddess of light, who bestows on him the miracle of flight for limited stretches. With this gift, Pit soars through the skies, shooting down swarms of enemies, then alights and engages in frantic ground-based battles against Medusas underworld army.

Find and collect numerous weapons and items that offer bonuses and ability boosts. Players can choose weapons before they send Pit into battle, giving them countless layers of strategies in each level.

Players can choose between a basic Blade, basic Claws and a basic Orbitar weapon. Blades are well-balanced, Claws have limited reach but increase running speed and the Orbitars can shoot two shots that grow in power over distance.

another thing where if it got a remaster could be one of the very best. the controls hold it back at a fundamental level, and with the strives in accessibility in gaming made since its release im all but certain that would be alleviated in any kind of port. still an incredible game if you're Able to play it, but there shouldn't be a barrier like that in the first place

In an unexpected sequel, Kid Icarus finds new light in an amazingly lighthearted world. With incredible comedy that uses the medium to it's advantage, characters will interact and bounce off of each other while still maintaining the overall plot. There's a really cool fake-out halfway through the game, for example. While struggling gameplay-wise due to wanting to do so much on a 3DS, it still feels right at home.

surprisingly good and kinda unique to be honest.

The story has no right to have all these good plot twists and genuinely really funny dialogue.

the carpal tunnel has left my wrists as nothing but nubs but it was worth it

Excelente historia y jugabilidad ojala salga una secuela
