"Sorry to keep you waiting!" It's been 21 years since the last Kid Icarus game came out on the Game Boy and 25 years since the original on the NES. Kid Icarus: Uprising on the Nintendo 3DS is a triumphant return of the classic Nintendo franchise. I suppose "rebirth" would be more appropriate than "return" in this case since the only two things Kid Icarus: Uprising has in common with its predecessors are the characters and the fact that you shoot enemies. Masahiro Sakurai, most recently known for his work on Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and his team at Project Sora really created a fantastic game here, folks. The graphics, the music, the gameplay, the sheer amount of content, and the overall quality of the game is truly worthy of admiration.
