Nintendo has revealed Kid Icarus: Uprising, the first game developed specifically for the 3DS.
The game was developed by Project Sora, a new studio formed in 2009 by Smash Bros director Masahiro Sakurai.
Nintendo president Saturo Iwata said: “Project Sora was actually established for one reason: to create a game that was built specifically for 3DS. And what better way to do this than by featuring a familiar character.”
Uprising sees the return of Kid Icarus, star of the popular NES platformer who was most recently seen as a guest star in Super Smash Bros Brawl.
The game puts players in the role of the lone angel as he battles demons and soars through the sky, using the enhanced graphics and 3D capabilities of the new handheld.
No date was given, but the trailer promised the game will be ‘coming soon’.
