One of Nintendo's long-forgotten characters on the 8-bit NES returns after more than 25 years with Kid Icarus - Uprising. Designed by Kirby and Super Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai, Uprising has players alternating between flight sequences and ground-based combat as angelic hero Pit confronts the dark forces of Medusa. In the air, the game is played like a rail-based shooter, with each third-person flight sequence lasting approximately five minutes. On land, players will collect treasures, acquire powerful new weapons, and battle an assortment of creatures inspired by Greek mythology. The game also includes support for team-based multiplayer competition, and players can use specially designed augmented reality cards to engage in battles with 3D characters.
