The New Kid Icarus May Explore Another Dimension: MultiplayerMichael McWhertor7/12/10 5:40pmFiled to: NintendoKid icarus uprisingNintendo 3ds3dsmasahiro sakuraiProject soraKid Icarus103EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkNintendo is finally creating a new Kid Icarus game, Kid Icarus Uprising, after nearly 20 years of downtime for the character. The Nintendo 3DS game may be modernized with a now-expected feature, online multiplayer, according to its creator.AdvertisementMasahiro Sakurai, Kid Icarus Uprising and the Super Smash Bros. Brawl game designer, tells UK mag Games Master that the 3DS game's "online capabilities are currently being tested." But that doesn't necessarily mean we're guaranteed flying too close to the sun while shooting Micks and Komaytos out of the sky via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service."There could be some versus play but we can't go into any detail," Sakurai teased. "There are a lot of capabilities that expand on what was in the DS that people are taking advantage of."With the new game's emphasis on air and land based combat, seemingly less on platforming and exploration, Kid Icarus Uprising sounds like the Nintendo 3DS's best candidate for a Warhawk-like dogfighter. If Nintendo is serious about improving its online capabilities, Uprising might be a good place to start.
