Medusa is sexy.

So how about some Icarus streaming?

Seriously, I love the redesigned characters so much. On a unrelated note, it'd be a damn shame if they put that much effort into re-imagining Pit, Palutena & Medusa and in the next Smash all 3 weren't playable. XD

That said, bring on Uprising. I'll be here trying to master Kid Icarus 1 on VC in the meantime.

I have never played Kid Icarus before. Is Medusa just as big a pushover as she is in Castlevania? :V
Regardless, I am mad hyped for this game.

In the original... sort of. There's this spot you can stay in that you'll be more or less safe through the whole thing. Getting there is another thing entirely though.

I'm liking what I've seen so far, that's for sure. The game makes me think of a mix of Star Fox and Sin & Punishment, which is certainly not a bad thing as far as I'm concerned. Those flying segments really make me want a new Star Fox in the vein though XD

I've been waiting for a new Kid Icarus game for the longest, and this looks like it will no disappoint.  The redesigns are beautiful, Medusa looks evil Hot, and if that's just a sample of the music from the game, I'm going to be super happy!  8D

I had the original Kid Icarus. That game was hard.

Pit being one of my mains in Brawl, I'm excited to see how this turns out. ^_^

The music, the designs, the flight that even looks mind-boggling in 2D (can't wait to see it on the system), and the dead evil sexiness of Medusa.  There is NOTHING to not love about this game.  I must have it.

Eggplants don't get thrown very high into the air, I'd guess?

Eggplant magic perhaps?

This game looks GORGEOUS. I couldn't have thought of a better demo to play during E3 to stamp out the mutterings of the 3DS being "just another model of the NDS." This game proves that the 3DS is a brand new system. Higher quality graphics for sure. The old NDS struggles to match N64-quality graphics. The 3DS surpasses the GameCube. I'm sure the 3D screen has a higher resolution too, otherwise those screenshots would be a lot more jaggedy.

...we're still not sure it SURPASSES the Gamecube. It seems to be quite powerful, but it remains to be seen.

I'm fairly confident that it does in processing muscle, even if not in end results.  You have to bear in mind that the 3DS is effectively rendering three screens at all time: The touch screen plus two different screen angles for the 3D effect.

And remember, after all, that we are looking at launch titles.

It does.  Vix's screenshots are actually the native resolution of the 3DS images, according to Nintendo's specs.  400x240, up from the previous DS's 256x192.

(that said, it's a common practice to show preview screen renders that do not match the actual hardware's output resolution; so wrong reason, right result)

We'll still need to see alot more of the console's titles before we judge that, as well as gameplay. But I'm confident it's at least as powerful as a PS2.

Honestly, I think it's closer to a Gamecube but with more modern tricks on the GPU side, allowing it to be efficient, cheap, and boast excellent graphics.

One thing I've taken notice of is that the system seems to have excellent draw distance.  I'm seeing very faraway stuff in the trailer with no fogging.  On the other hand, that may just be because this is the first game trailer in many years which I have watched two dozen times over. 8)

Makes sense, I suppose, that if the system's whole shpiel is depth perception, somebody thought to see to it that you actually can see far.

3D shooter games can push a hardware quite well because they're maintained on a singular straight path instead of following where the player wants to go. So it's easier to load draw distances where you want them to be loaded.

I dunno, for a shooter the camera is pretty dynamic.  I'm talking about whenever Pit is flying over stuff.

This sure is anticipated, the hype and love this game will get oh my god.
Then we'll all forget it because games have such a short life span, and the only thing this can do to keep afloat is online capabilities, but it won't last long, it will be shoved off. [Marvin]
