Nintendo has revealed new details on the multiplayer aspects of their upcoming 3DS exclusive title, Kid Icarus: Uprising. A fast-paced and actionpacked blend of aerial and ground-based shooting built on elegantly intuitive and streamlined play control is just some of what you can expect in this great 3DS title.
More than 25 years after the launch of the original Kid Icarus game for NES, Kid Icarus: Uprising brings the action and adventure of this beloved series to new heights. Modes and features in the new game include:
Light vs. Dark: Team up with other players in Light vs. Dark multiplayer mode, in which two teams of three are pitted against one another. The ultimate goal is to empty the opposing team’s health meter, which transforms the last defeated team member into an angel. The team who defeats the opposing team’s angel wins. This unique multiplayer mode tests players’ ability to work as a team while keeping the match exciting as the focus constantly shifts from dealing out damage to protecting the team angel.
Free-for-All: In this mode, up to six players (including CPU players) combat each other in a winner-takes-all match. Winners are determined by high score, heavily influenced by both the number of kills and the number of deaths.
Kid Icarus: Uprising will be available in retail stores and on the Nintendo eShop come late March 2012.
