Kid Icarus

Happy Monday, folks! Max and I are back from our weekend vacations in Hangover City, and before you ask, yes - we brought souvenirs. By which I mean, we brought back gaming news thinly disguised as souvenirs. Today, we've go...
Of all Nintendo's classic franchises, Kid Icarus is one that has sorely been lacking in love, with protagonist Pit's failing to make even a playable Super Smash Bros. appearance until Brawl rolled around in 2008. However, tha...
GAME is still dragging its broken legs behind itself as it crawls across a field of broken glass, suffering further indignity today with reports that both Microsoft and Activision have decided to pull back their support of th...

Still on the fence on whether or not you'll be getting Kid Icarus: Uprising for 3DS when it's released this March? The fact that it comes with a stand not enough for you? How about a free download of the original NES classic,...
Here's another tasty wad of Kid Icarus: Uprising screenshots for you. The main theme appears to be bosses, as many images feature huge, roaring monsters that will doubtless need taking down. Monsters are assholes like that.&n...
If you thought you'd seen the smallest food mankind was capable of making... think again, because I've got pictures that prove otherwise. The impossibly tiny food at Capcom's Fright Club last night has provided us with enoug...
If you somehow missed my preview for Kid Icarus: Uprising -- which you can read here -- Nintendo was also kind enough to send over a new gameplay trailer the helps do this beautiful game, a little more justice than the onsla...
"I can't believe I'm actually flying!" These are some of the first words that Nintendo's, once forgotten hero, Pit utters in disbelief during the opening moments of Kid Icarus: Uprising -- his long awaited return to the foref...
Masahiro Sakurai can't catch a break. The "angry eyes" curse that plagued the Kirby series seems to have followed him to Project Sora and rooted itself in Kid Icarus: Uprising. How dare he try to present a character who is cu...
Kid Icarus: Uprising will be bundled with some free AR cards and a special stand for your 3DS. Placing your console on the stand will make it easier to play the game, as you wont have to support the weight of the console...

[Update: It turns out that the enhanced maps and tilesets were made by Jon Leung of VGMaps back in April 2007. He wasn't properly credited for the use of his edits. Not cool, Flip Industries. Not cool at all.] Kid Icarus wil...

Nintendo has confessed that it's purposely holding back some of its upcoming 3DS games, planning to release them next year in a bid to maximize sales.  "For us to provide software titles one after another, one idea is, '...
Kid Icarus is the next game confirmed to hit the 3DS' "3D Classics" range, and at least it's a classic this time. A classic that people have tricked themselves into thinking is good despite it being a bit rubbish, but a class...
For the most part, the games I saw and played at the EB Games Expo were impressive. None really disappointed me or made me lose hope in a franchise. Some weren't for me, some made me want to pre-order that very same minute.&n...
Like Metroid Prime: Hunters was for the DS, Kid Icarus: Uprising is slowly turning into the 3DS's very own "initially announced as a console selling killer app, but now is more of an afterthought" title. This video does a lo...
Recent rumors have cropped up concerning a game called Smash Bros. Universe for Wii U, sparking all sorts of wild debate online. Series director Masahiro Sakurai has, however, stomped on any Smash Bros. talk, claiming th...

There's nothing in the way of game media at the newly launched Japanese website for upcoming Nintendo 3DS game Kid Icarus Uprising. It's older trailers from last year. I suspect that it will be updated next month, closer to E...
I have fond memories of my pre-teen self working diligently to master the frustrating world of Kid Icarus on the Nintendo Entertainment System, in an attempt to best the Eggplant Wizard and that thing they claimed was Medusa....
[Update: I swapped the video with a better one of the same event provided by deityofanime. Thanks!] I'm pretty sure that this is footage taken from Masahiro Sakurai's Nintendo full presentation on Kid Icarus: Uprising (all ...
This seems like a bit of a Captain Obvious post, but everybody's treating Masahiro Sakurai's comments like a big deal, so you might want to know. Basically, the Kid Icarus Uprising director has stated that you'll want a ...
