Welcome to Uprisen!

(Note: This is the updated and most recent version of the <a title=”About Uprisen first poston Uprisen. We’d recommend trusting this page more than that one.)

Uprisen is the very first fan website exclusively for the upcoming game Kid Icarus: Uprising for the Nintendo 3DS handheld system. We are going to try to bring you the newest and latest updates on this long-awaited sequel to some pretty darn old games.

The game Uprising is currently rumored to be released in August, 2011. It was originally speculated by some, though doubted by many, that it may come bundled with the console. This was proved false when the Nintendo 3DS and Kid Icarus: Uprising were given very different release dates.

Though the Nintendo 3DS is going to be sold for ¥25,000 in Japan, which is equal to about $300 in American money, the price of the system is as low as $250 in North America. The games on the system will cost between $35 and $45 in NA, and Uprising is rumored to be among the more expensive.

Kid Icarus: Uprising was first announced at E3 2010, around twenty years after the last game in the series. The game is being developed by Project Sora, and published by Nintendo.

The game itself is a third-person, action adventure shooter. It is unknown whether it is an RPG, or just a platformer with large levels. Part of the game is about flying through long areas as the game’s protagonist, Pit, and defending yourself against enemy attacks. More of the game takes place on ground, which would be the more-platformer side of the game.

Uprising is going to use the 3DS’ third-dimensional feature as well. Other than the few hundred very lucky people who got to attend several Nintendo events and conferences, not many people have actually seen the “better than amazing” 3D capabilities. We’ll just have to hope that they’re as high as our expectations.

The story of Uprising has not yet been released to the public. The known facts are that you are Pit, an angel, and the protagonist of previous games; the main antagonist is Medusa, who has been in past games, and is based off a Greek goddess; and you are helped by Palutena, who is the rival goddess of Medusa. Several bosses from previous games have come back, along with many other elements. Here is the E3 Trailer.

Anyway, that is our overview of the upcoming game Kid Icarus: Uprising.
