"I've always been very amused with the cult following of Kid Icarus; the game was released in 1987, overshadowed by the similar-engine Metroid, and hasn't been seen since a 1991 follow-up on the Game Boy. I've played the game myself, and while it wasn't bad I could never really get into it. The cries for the angel Pit's return, however, have been constant and ever-growing, and now the series is back with Kid Icarus: Uprising on the 3DS. The game plays nothing like the original game, which made me a bit nervous; after trying it out for myself, however, I'm completely sold on the new gameplay angle."
