Amidst all of the Skylander madness, plenty of other games have been receiving incredible recognition, especially the long anticipated Kid Icarus: Uprising for the Nintendo 3DS. Here at the Skylands, we’ve broken down exactly what features make this title stand out from the rest!
– A massive array of weapons at Pit’s disposal. Pit can wield weapons from nine separate categories, including blades, claws, staffs, palms, clubs, cannons, orbitars and arms! These weapons each bring their own stats to the battlefield, and can be fused together in any which mixture, immensely multiplying the amount of weapons at Pit’s disposal.
– AR Cards, Lots of AR Cards. Uprising will feature over one hundred different collectible AR cards, that serve as unlockables in the game known as “idols”. The collectibility of AR Cards is a fresh taste to mobile gamers, and definitely adds to the amount of time that can be spent on this packed title.
– Old Meets New; The creators behind Uprising have done an incredible job fusing the classic style of Kid Icarus with the new and improved title for the 3DS, coming together for a deep but satisfying experience. For example, the currency system is built around expendable “hearts”, just like the Classic Kid Icarus.
– Online Multiplayer is well thought out! It’s very rare to find a handheld game with a great online multiplayer mode, but Uprising has captured the true essence of mobile online, and features absolutely non-stop explosive battle shaking the 3DS right out of your hands! You can either play a six player free-for-all mode, which obviously, is every fighter for his/herself, duking it out on a gorgeous battlefield, using weapons, items and strategy in balanced methods. The other mode is Light vs Dark, a 3V3 battle mode, where you duke it out against the opposing team, and then proceed to defeat the opposing team’s “angel”.
Overall Kid Icarus: Uprising is the title 3DS has been looking for, and justly has reached much hype, so pre-order while you can, and check back soon for more Skylanders info!
