On the Radar: Kid Icarus: Uprising

Remember the guy named Pit in Super Smash Bros. Brawl? Believe it or not, the forgotten hero appears to be getting another chance to shine. The upcoming game Kid Icarus: Uprising is a game in the series Kid Icarus. This game will be the third in the series. The first game was Kid Icarus for the NES, and the second, Kid Icarus: Myths and Monsters, was for the Game Boy Advance. While these two games were side-scrolling platformers, Uprising is a 3D game that is also, you know, a 3D game. This is because the game is being released on the 3DS and its 3D capability while it also has a three-dimensional world. Uprising also takes weapon selection in the saga to a new level. While the original games had one weapon, Uprising has a vast amount. This is possible in that all weapons are unique So even if you the same weapon it could have different stats. Kid Icarus: Uprising may be a long-awaited sequel to a little-known series, but it’s a game that may leave us pleasantly surprised.

On the Radar: Epic Mickey 2

Though we may all have mixed feelings on the first Epic Mickey, I hope the second will change that. That’s right–the second Epic Mickey, innovatively called Epic Mickey 2, is expected next Christmas season.

The game will be coop, first player being Mickey and second player being Oswald. We don’t know if it will pick up where the previous story left off or if it will have a whole new story. The game will be available on Wii, Xbox 360, and PS3. Naturally the Xbox and PS3 will be HD, but they won’t have the motion controls that the Wii has.
