It’s 25 years since the original Kid Icarus game was out for the NES, and now for the much-long sequel, Kid Icarus Uprising, is coming out to the Nintendo 3DS. Designed by Kirby and Super Smash Bros. creator, Masahiro Sakurai, the game sees the return of Pit and the dark goddess Medusa.
In addition to the main game, the game also includes multiplayer battles between two teams (each team can have up to three, so 6 people can play in total). As well, it will feature AR Card compatibility, allowing the cards to face off each other while “popping up” on the 3D screen.
The game is set for a Holiday 2011 release, and screenshots and the trailer can be found after the jump.
