And here’s the game Nintendo chose to show the 3DS off with at their press conference. This one is developed by Project Sora, the studio led by Masahiro Sakurai, creator of Kirby and Smash Bros. At their conference, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata revealed that Sora was set up specifically to develop games for the 3DS.


Nintendo’s fact sheet for the game touts “fast-paced and action-packed blend of aerial and ground-based shooting built on elegantly intuitive and streamlined play control.”

  • Simply STUNNING.

  • Looks terribl…y FABULOUS!


  • BTW can the 3DS download games from DSiWare? (or whatever it’s called)

    • I’m sure it will be able to. One of the things they mentioned at the press conference was a greater emphasis on its online features.

      • He even said it can download stuff while the DS is closed (i imagine he meant closed as in sleep mode, not turned off o.0) pretty cool, i guess we all are sold xD

    I’ll buy it first day :)

    Anyone actually play Kid Icarus back on the NES? Or do people nowadays only know him from Brawl?

    • I day-oned the NES, so yeah.

    • RX79V

      I played the one on Game boy and it was also one of the first few games (along with Mega Man 2) I bought for the system.
      Very nice game.

    looks very good, kinda reminds me of sin and punishment, but still looks worth getting

    • kylehyde

      Same here, I think the same when I saw the trailer.

    • I thought it was similar to Star Fox Assault.
