Respected, but sometimes controversial, gaming publication Edge has awarded the forthcoming Kid Icarus: Uprising on Nintendo 3DS a solid 8/10. The magazine states that Kid Icarus: Uprising is a smart splicing of Star Fox and Zelda, which should please fans. Kid Icarus: Uprising is exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS and is due for release March 23rd.
Kid Icarus is back, then, and it turns out we did miss him. With Uprising, those internet petitioners finally have something they can be proud of. The control scheme initially seems lopsided, but works wonderfully for the flying sections, while any slight clumsiness on foot is countered by a responsive dodge. A worryingly compulsive weapon-fusing system thrown in, adding a chunk of the Pokemon gene to a game that already feels like a smart splicing of Star Fox and Zelda.
