From The Skylands To The Skyworld
With Skylanders releases slimming down, it’s time to take a quick trip away from Skylanders news, and see what else is happening in the gaming industry. Over the next couple of months, I will be extensively covering some new games, and I’m starting this journey with Kid Icarus: Uprising for the Nintendo 3DS. I will spend a few days on each game, and around E3 Convention time, we’ll land back at the Skylands ready for any and all Skylanders News!
Skylands to the Skyworld: Pit, the main protagonist in Kid Icarus: Uprising, is a flightless angel from the Skyworld, who is led by the Goddess of Light, Lady Palutena. Uprising was headed and developed by Smash Bros. Creator, Masahiro Sakuri, and he did one incredible job. Uprising is my favorite game of 2011-2012, if not of all time. I honestly can’t seem to put this game down! Over the next few days, I will be giving extensive coverage over this game, form details and tactics, to unlockables and gear. Uprising features a massive weapons system with tons of weapons, each of which can fuse together to create new weapons. With nine weapon categories, and a huge selection of each, it’s hard to keep up with which weapon combinations are the best, which effect modifications to look for, and how to know what to fuse to get your desired weapon. At the end of my Uprising coverage, I will release a massive chart with all of the weapons, fuse options, and even plausible effect modifications! If you have not looked into this game yet, I highly recommend you do, especially if you already have a Nintendo 3DS.
Lastly, don’t forget to check back Friday for the announcement of the Air Skylander Contest winner, who will be receiving a single pack Lightning Rod!
