TGS 2011: Kid Icarus: Uprising delayed, more game footage and free video content revealed

Nintendo had mixed news for Kid Icarus: Uprising hopefuls during its TGS 2011 press event. After dropping a new gameplay trailers for the 3DS title, Nintendo revealed the game's launch will be preceded by a series of 3D animations based on the franchise, which will be available for free via Nintendo's Video service. That was the good news. The bad? Nintendo confirmed that Pit's revival has been pushed back to 2012 across the globe, and not just in Europe as previously planned.

Nintendo did not offer a revised release date for Kid Icarus: Uprising or its promotional anime videos. However, the latter will be produced in association with Production I.G. (Ghost in the Shell), Studio 4C (Catherine) and Shaft (Negima).

    That's fine, I have plenty of games to buy this year. And it will be all the better for it anyway, so I have no issues with this.

    I'll wait as long as I have too. The remains one of the main reasons I got a 3DS so I hope the extended wait is worth it.
