Kid Icarus: Uprising also a battle royal mode where it’s every angel for themselves.
Players can fight each other over an ad-hoc connection and through Internet play. You can challenge a buddy from your friend list or meet up with a stranger. According to the menus, internet play lets you meet with players from around the world.
A tip of the hat to Amri for the heads up! Thanks!
