Kid Icarus Uprising Released Today - Hooray!

So, anyone else super-excited about the Kid Icarus Uprising release today?  My son sure was -- we pre-ordered it on so we could get the free download code for the special 3D Classics version of the original Kid Icarus (which we got by email this morning -- thanks, Amazon!), and he was stalking the UPS man today waiting for the package to arrive.  Well, it FINALLY came (why was UPS a little late today, arghhh!), and of course, wild excitement ensued.

The game came with a special stand for you to use during game play (optional usage), which my son showed me how cool it looked on his 3DS, then quickly put off to the side in favor of regular handheld play.   The game also came with six AR cards which give info on the characters/weapons on the cards.  Another neat feature of the cards is that they are interactive, and you can actually have the characters on the cards battle with each other!

One of the things that I appreciated was the reversible cover art included with the game case.  When you open the case, you can see pictures of Pit with various expressions on his face, and when you remove the instruction booklet and other paperwork included with the game, you can see various pictures of other characters in the game like Palutena and Medusa.    Even nicer, when you remove the artwork from the game case, you see other visuals related to the game.  Nice!

We haven't played the game that much yet to be able to dish on all of it's great features, but from what we have seen, it is action-filled and user-friendly, even having a feature that will recommend an appropriate intensity (level)

of gameplay according to its observations.  Of course, you can choose the intensity you want to play at, and you will definitely want to try some of the higher intensities to obtain some of the most powerful weapons available in the game.

Nintendo has dedicated a site to the Kid Icarus game where you can view screenshots, how-to videos, learn about the different modes of gameplay (multi-player local play or via the internet), and explore different stages of the game among other things.  You can visit the Kid Icarus site here.
