Masahiro Sakurai Talks About Kid Icarus: Uprising's Multiplayer

Expectation have to be running high for the multiplayer component of Kid Icarus: Uprising. After all, it's the designer beloved for pitting Nintendo's all-stars and B-listers against each other in crazy free-for-all battles who's in charge of the game.

In the video above, Sakurai details the weapons and modes that you'll find in the upcoming 3DS release. There's also information about single-player gameplay, too. Kid Icarus: Uprising comes out on March 23rd.


    can we get a TL;DW summary? (Too long, didn't watch), or is that too much to ask from Kotaku US?

      From what I can remember, the main multiplayer mode is a 3v3 team deathmatch with an overall team health bar. When one team has reduced the other's bar to 0, the last person to die becomes an angel (Pit or Dark Pit depending on the team). Once the team's angel has appeared, the goal is to kill them to win the game. (So the other 2 team members must protect their angel while trying to kill the opposing angel).

      ...That sounds more complicated after typing it out. It might be easier just to watch it. xD I think there are a couple of different modes as well but they don't go into much detail.

      Just watch the chuffing video.
