10 Reasons I Love Kid Icarus Uprising

Kid Icarus Uprising Sky Battle + blasting monsters in the sky

1) Pit finally returns

  • Even though he showed up in Super Smash Brothers Brawl, it's has been 20 years since his last game, Kid Icarus Of Myths And Monsters for the original black and white GameBoy.
  • It's also been over 25 years since the original antagonist of the first Kid Icarus, Medusa, appeared.

2) Stunning Visuals

  • Stunning 3D visuals, which create the incredible environments.
  • Makes excellent use of the 3D screen that doesn’t require special glasses to use.
  • Unbelievable special effects which will make your mouth drop in awe.

3) Multiple Antagonists

  • First The Underworld army
  • Second The Forces Of Nature, not only do they try and kill you but the Underworld army
  • The Aurum, mysterious creatures from space. You team up with the Underworld army and Forces of Nature here.
  • There seems to be no end to the number of armies you have to fight. Luckily these armies are also out for each other, so use that to your advantage to take them all out.

  • 9 different types of weapons
  • Each type has several different weapons to acquire
  • A ton of different modifiers to modify them
  • Find additional weapons in the different levels or buy them at the shop.
  • Weapon fusion, fuse two weapons to try and create a new more powerful weapon which will have some of the modifiers of the weapons used to fuse it. 

5) Many special powers

  • Not only are there a ton of weapons there are a lot of special powers to acquire as well.
  • Some powers are special attacks that will put a hurting on your enemies, and some are for defense to protect yourself.
  • Some will give your weapons an added effect
  • There are also other categories these powers fall into as well.

6) Incredible story

  • Seemingly straight forward at first, the story then starts making twist and turns as the whole situation grows more and more complicated.
  • Others join the war but for their own purposes, creating a situation where it seems like the whole world is against you.
  • It gets confusing at point where you must progress further into the game to uncover the truth about what's going on.
  • Nintendo really showed their stuff here as the story is one of the best they have ever created and the way they pulled it off is fantastic as well.

7) Stupendous soundtrack

  • The soundtrack in the game isn't just perfect for the gameplay, but it's great to listen to on its own as well.
  • Music also changes as the situation changes in the game, better than any movie.

8) 25 action packed levels

  • Most of these levels contain a flying segment then a ground battle segment followed by a boss battle.
  • To keep the action going the characters talk to each other to tell the story, this keeps the cut scenes very short and are usually just used to give the boss an introduction before the boss battle

9) Character Conversations

  • While you play through the levels the characters will be conversing with each other.
  • This not only tells the story but also many jokes throughout the game as well.
  • With plenty of jokes you could also give this game a comedy genre tag.
  • At points throughout the game, the characters will make references to other games, which if you’re like me will be entertained by.

10) Multiplayer battles and online mode

  • 6 people multiplayer battles. When there aren’t enough players a computer will play the rest.
  • Free-For -All Battle, most kills win. Use your best weapons here and take out as many opponents as you can.
