Kid Icarus: Uprising Animated Shorts Detailed


    Nintendo are collaborating with three well-known anime studios to produce promotional 3D animated shorts for Kid Icarus: Uprising. In North America, these will be viewable through the Nintendo Video service on the Nintendo 3DS. Today, the Kid Icarus: Uprising Twitter feed in Japan gave a quick glimpse of each of these shorts:


    The Production I.G. short will involve a fight between Pit and one of Medusa’s minions, Thanatos. Production I.G. are best known for Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex.


    The Studio 4°C short features Medusa, the goddess of the Underworld, as the main character. This short tells the story of Medusa and Palutena’s rivalry, which covers a period from far into Pit’s past up to the present day.


    Finally, the Shaft short features Palutena as the main character and “her attempts to deal with a great catastrophe in her Skyworld home”. This actually involves a cooking challenge that falls victim to some sort of calamity.


    Kid Icarus: Uprising will be released on March 23rd in North America and Europe.
