Nintendo Co. this week detailed the multiplayer modes for Kid Icarus: Uprising for the Nintendo 3DS.
Multiplayer modes include Light vs. Dark in which two teams of three are pitted against one another, and Free-For-All in which up to six players combat each other for a high score.
Multiplayer features include Match Set-up to setup local or online matches with custom difficulty, weapons, and team handicaps prior to each match.
Weapons and Weapons Fusion allows users to utilize weapons collected in single-player mode for use in multiplayer matches.
Finally, StreetPass functionality allows users to share one of their weapons with other owners.
Kid Icarus: Uprising, to be sold Mar. 23, is a new third-person action shooter.
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.
