The gameplay looks like free-roaming third-person shooter with wings and some fancy weapons. Players seem to team up, light versus dark, in this video. Though there's also a free-for-all Battle Royale mode.

Kid Icarus: Uprising is due out on North American 3DS on March 23.

DISCUSSION

Nintendo HAS had games with online and SOME of those games have been functional, but none of their games have been anything to hold up to a pedestal to tell other game makers that this is how online should be.

This game looks no different.

I mean considering the mess that's Skyward Swords WiiWare channel to change save files to fix a game breaking bug show that Nintendo has a LONG way to go before anyone can validly defend the company's online infrastructure.
