Kid Icarus: Uprising gets a release date
3D iteration of Nintendo classic out this March.
Kid Icarus for the Nintendo 3DS will be available in stores starting March 23.
For those who don’t know, Kid Icarus was one of the very first games to be presented for the Nintendo 3D device. Kid Icarus will be compatible with the handheld’s external control peripheral, the Circle Pad Pro, allowing for an alternative control layout for left-handed users.
“Kid Icarus: Uprising uses a control scheme designed to fit the game’s unique blend of flight, shooting and melee combat, and offers tremendous precision, speed and depth that rewards dedicated players. The left hand uses the Circle Pad, while the right uses a stylus, both at the same time,” explains Nintendo. “Every copy of the game will come with a free stand that holds the Nintendo 3DS at an angle above any flat surface, and provides players with a new kind of gaming experience.”
Nintendo says that all copies of Kid Icarus: Uprising will include a 3DS stand.
