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).
