3D Classics: Kid Icarus is Now Available to Download on Your 3DS-icus.
Want to play a fancy, 3D version of the original Kid Icarus on your 3DS? No? Well too bad because the 1986 cult favorite platfomer was just made available on the eShop today and you’re going to download it and you will like it (probably)! The 3D enhanced visuals are the obvious selling point for anyone who may already own a physical copy of the NES cart or have it downloaded from the Wii’s Virtual Console *raises hand on both counts.* But that isn’t the only visual flourish exclusive to this new port! Beautiful new backgrounds have been added to each stage creating a more detailed world than ever before:
So what if those gorgeous new lava falls aren’t animated in any way and completely alter the awesome “night time” aesthetic of the original release? It’s the thought that counts right? Right!? Anyway, the game has a certain charm that can’t be denied and is definitely worth throwing a few bucks at if only to play the incredibly cool last level. I’ll be picking this up later today because I have always had a deep love of the title theme and apparently I can never own enough games to not really be in the mood to play.
Now let’s make Of Myths and Monsters available over here Nintendo, ok? Thanks.
