Nintendo Co. this week released new details for Kid Icarus: Uprising for the Nintendo 3DS.
The title will begin with the return of Medusa and her Underworld army. Pit must combat the evil army and Medusa in air and land battles.
A new system called the Fiend’s Cauldron will allow users to adjust the intensity level of the game by increments of .1 by betting a number of Hearts into the Fiend’s Cauldron. An increased intensity will earn more Hearts and more powerful weapon drops. If Hearts are bet and the player is defeated, some Hearts are lost and the intensity level falls.
New items include bow and claw weapons and Exo Tank vehicles.
The final game will include a stand that holds the Nintendo 3DS at an angle on a flat surface to offer precise left analog control and right-handed stylus play. In addition, the title is compatible with the optional Circle Pad Pro accessory.
In addition, users who pre-order the title at select retailers will receive a bonus download code for 3D Classics: Kid Icarus – a remastered 3D version of the NES classic.
Kid Icarus: Uprising will be sold Mar. 23.
