Kid Icarus 3DS: Pit is a ‘brand new character’

Recommended Videos

Pit feels like a brand new character, says Kid Icarus 3DS‘ director. I hope so! It’s been awhile since they pulled the Kid out of the closet.

Masahiro Sakurai told the Official Nintendo Magazine that Pit is all-new, especially when you consider that he’s now using all of these new weapons and skills.

“One thing I can talk about is that Pit uses a lot of weapons and this is a very important aspect of the game,” Sakurai told the magazine. “There’s a wide variety of very different types of weapons. Each one is very unique and presents a wide range of gameplay possibilities and a multitude of ways to approach different enemies with different weapons.”

It seems there’s multiple attack types: shooting for long-range and striking for short. For the shooting you can choose between charge and consecutive shots.

Sakurai: “All of this weapon variation makes you feel like you’re playing the game with a brand new character because the feel is so varied when you use different weapons.”
