New Kid Icarus: Uprising Trailer has me excited about the game again

Ever since E3 last, I have been skeptical of Kid Icarus: Uprising. The controls just didn’t seem quite right and the voice acting left a lot to be desired. This new trailer for the game, however, has got me wanting to play the game, and may even get me to put money down for a preorder. Not sure what it is about the trailer that got me excited, but the game does look like it will be fun, even if the story might not entirely grab me.

None the less, it is great to see more games coming out for the handheld. Although I have been bogged down with titles as of late, and am having trouble finding time to finish all the great games! What about you? Are you planning on picking up Kid Icarus next month?

    Personally I was kind of hoping for more of a side scrolling RPG (lack of a better term) type game like the old Metroid games but in the Kid Icarus universe. Roaming around and collecting hearts and hammers to unlock new weapons and armor.

    This still looks good but not really my cup of tea. I will get it at some stage, but not at launch.

    The only thing that really keeps me interested in it is that Masahiro Sakurai is involved. I’m still significantly apprehensive, though. I’ll probably wait for reviews to come out to decide for sure.

    I played the game at the San Diego Comic Con and it was awesome. So, I’ve got it pre-ordered.

    I … already have it on pre-order on Amazon, along with Rhythm Thief R.

    From what I hear, it is really hard to play as a handheld game, but should be OK with the stand. It’s kind of like Sin & Punishment, right? I think that was my favorite game of 2010, since I hadn’t plays Ys 7 yet, which would now take that #1 spot for that year.

    I too would love a game like that, but I wouldn’t pay full retail for it. Nintendo has shown us that they are really trying to push games onto the eShop, and a game like that seems in-line with the quality of titles there for the price point of ~$10.

    I is sad, I was hoping Kid Icarus game would have been an action adventure, but it is not. I hope they would be a Wii U one that is vane of Zelda series. :D

    What was with the little 5-second clip of 8-bit Kid Icarus in there? I’m certainly interested about THAT…

    Had this “launch title” (LOL) pre-ordered and payed for since I got my 3ds. I’m excited for it, just keep waiting, just keep waiting… Come on Sakurai, I’m sure it’ll be awesome, but really… A whole year? lol

  10. Hi there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.
