Hopefully this will be the last post in a while about Kid Icarus Uprising, since I must have spent the last week posting about the game non stop due to the constant new screenshots they keep releasing of it.
I’ll hold to that too, I plan to not write a single news post or article that in any way whatsoever relates to Kid Icarus Uprising for the entire upcoming weekend, if not a good week or two. It’s not Smash Bros level important and I’d like this site to have more articles about other video games.
First though, here are some videos of the game. Well, all the tutorial videos Nintendo released of it combined into one long video so you don’t have to watch them all individually:
We also have some screenshots, which can be seen below:
Pit blasts some enemies in mid air. This definitely looks pretty cool, and it seems to imply you can sort of fly even on the levels set on the ground.
Pit fires what seems like an explosive meteor at his enemies. Looks like it would be very, very satisfying to use this weapon in combat, don’t you think? Besides, who can honestly hate an ancient greek rocket launcher?
Are you a fan of the Resident Evil games that are available on the 3DS, such as the Mercenaries and Resident Evil Revelations? Well here’s some good news from producer Masachika Kawata in regards to the possibility of making another one:
The incredibly positive fan reaction to Revelations has definitely given me motivation to make another 3DS RE title
Again, I admit there seem to be a lot of screens and videos of this game being posted here recently, but it’s just plain insane not to cover such an important 3DS game whenever any more news about it is revealed. So here are some new trailers and screenshots from today:
And the screenshots:
First up, what seems to be some combat in a castle like setting, perhaps the on shown in yesterday’s screens of this game.
Some weapon stats. Unfortunately, I don’t have any idea whatsoever what stats are being boosted by +1 and +2 respectively, nor what the star ratings to the left show.
As well as a new Cobalt Blue 3DS for anyone who happens to like the colour blue and wants their 3DS to be an interesting colour. First of all, here’s the 3DS model in question:
Not exactly my favourite 3DS colour. Really prefer my current black one to it I’m afraid.
But that’s not all. Nintendo have also announced various new 3DS bundles, including two new ones based around Super Mario 3D Land:
The white one looks pretty nice, and goes fantastically with Super Mario 3D Land. Not so much the pink one, but what can you do. They also seem to include a copy of Super Mario Bros (the eShop one) that’s already been downloaded to the console for free.
Bit disappointing in that respect though, the original Super Mario Bros 1 has been rereleased constantly on practically every Nintendo platform known to man, and I honestly think it’d make more sense to include Super Mario Land 1 and 2 to show people what Super Mario 3D Land is meant to be a sort of sequel to. But that’s just my opinion.
Yes, the amount of posts dedicated to these is probably getting a bit ridiculous by now, but it seems Nintendo is releasing new screens of the game every day. Plus, there’s a sort of 3DS news drought going on at the moment, so anything we can get that relates to the 3DS and its games is definitely welcome.
Two screens here in one picture for some reason. In the top one, I have to wonder exactly what Pit’s wearing on his hand. Really, it looks like some kind of demonic boxing glove, is it a new weapon or something?
And as for the bottom screen… it reminds me of Kirby. All those multi coloured stars just make me think too much of Kirby’s Adventure/Nightmare in Dreamland and Mt Dedede from Kirby Super Star. This music too:
Pit fights… some kind of floating spiky looking clam? No, I don’t know either, nor do I know why it seems energy balls are flying everywhere and Pit looks like he’s been electrocuted.
Pit dodges the portal of doom in the town central square. Really though, what the hell is going on with that portal thing, it looks a bit ridiculous. Also, call me stupid for not paying attention before, but I guess you do lock onto enemies when you attack.
More multiplayer. Have to say, this game is certainly doing its utmost best to avoid the ‘real is brown’ problem that so many current video games fall victim too. I mean, there’s an awful lot of sparkling lights, bright purple colour schemes and an overall shiny look that really does show me what a video game could look like if it stopped trying to portray dull post apocalyptic battlefield settings and actually showed a proper living world. Damn this game will look good in 3D.
So those are some more Kid Icarus Uprising screenshots, and they look as fantastic as they ever did.
