Although it may have seemed like the gaming community killed Medusa and her wriggling hair over twenty years ago in the original Kid Icarus, that belief was incorrect. The cthonic monster from Greek mythology is indeed alive and squirming. In fact, she leads an underworld uprising which threatens all that is good and pure in Kid Icarus: Uprising. That is all revealed in Nintendo‘s latest trailer for its soon-to-be-released 3DS game, which asks gamers to find the same three scaled treasures that they used against the evil being back in the 1980s. How’s that for an homage?
Kid Icarus: Uprising will be released on March 23. Check out our in-depth Hands On Preview article while you wait.
