Nintendo 3DS: Kid Icarus Uprising For Nintendo 3DS May Include Online Multiplayer

Masahiro Sakurai, the designer behind Kid Icarus Uprising and Super Smash Bros. Brawl has informed British gaming publication Gamesmaster that the game could include an online multiplayer mode.

“The online capabilities are currently being tested. There could be some versus play but we can’t go into any detail. There are a lot of capabilities that expand on what was in the DS that people are taking advantage of.”

  1. Fourth!!! hehehehe…. But isn’t Kid Icarus an adventure game? how could the online be? I can’t imagine clearly a Zelda multi-player… and I imagined Kid Icarus somewhat like Zelda

    1. There has been a Zelda MP, it’s called “The 4 Swords”, “Phantom Hourglass” and “Spirit Tracks”.

      I am excited that Kid Icarus could have Online MP; I am a huge online gamer fan. :)

  2. From what I understand of the gameplay, it’s a simple loop. The player fights for about 5 minutes in air, lands, fights on land for an undetermined amount of time, and then proceeds to a boss. Rinse and repeat.

    In terms of that conflicting with multiplayer, I doubt it. Both Zeldas on DS had multiplayer, and you shouldn’t be surprised if we see multiplayer in LoZ:OoT. Aonuma stated that he wants to use this as a chance to not only fix the mistakes of OoT, but incorporate ideas that didn’t make it. I know for a fact that they wanted a lot of their N64 games to have multiplayer. Just look at SM64.
