The long-awaited return of the Kid Icarus series on the 3DS.
Kid Icarus Uprising is the third game in the Kid Icarus series. Dormant since the days of the NES, the series saw a resurgence with Pit's appearance in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, with this long-awaited third installment produced by the same developer (Sakurai).
The player must control the angel Pit as he fights his way through hoardes of Underworld enemies, both in linear flight sequences and free-roaming ground battles, before reaching the level's boss and taking them out. The game offers hundreds of weapons with individual characteristics and a rather unparalleled self-referential sense of humour.
