latest Kid Icarus: Uprising trailer goes to pains to establish the
game's links to the source material: here you'll see links back to
both the NES original and the Greek mythology on which the whole
franchise draws. But if you're a little cheesed off at the liberties
Nintendo's taken with the latter, best just stop watching before the
Tempura Wizard shows up at 1:40. Our Classics is a bit rusty, but
we're pretty sure Homer and Virgil glossed over this guy...
Our most recent glimpse of Uprising saw us impressed with the game's multiplayer
mode and looking forward to the game's launch two weeks from now.
While the game's lead, Masahiro Sakurai, has already moved onto
developing two new Smash Bros games, you're free to pass the time
plugging away on the SNES instalment that never was... or digging out
those Classical Greek textbooks and trying to find out where the bit
about being turned into an eggplant fits in.
