Yesterday, Nintendo released an extended trailer of Kid Icarus Uprising that gives a lot more insight into what we're getting in the next few weeks. I'm sure it's just the trailer, but the cheesy voice overs hurt the appeal. Luckily we get to see the comparison to the original NES version. Pandora went from a goofy looking circle to a flaming orb. Medusa transforms from an odd mess of pixels into a terrifyingly large creature. The control scheme looks really intriguing - a 3rd person shooter meets hack-and-slash combat. I still think the action elements have a lot to go on, and Pit looks good. I'm super excited to fight Dark Pit and can't wait to break this one out. March 23rd can't come soon enough.
