The lights are on
No surprises were revealed during the Nintendo Direct broadcast last night, but one major question was answered: Where the hell is Kid Icarus Uprising? The game, which was one of the first games revealed for the 3DS, has finally secured a release date. It will hit store shelves in Japan on March 22.
Nintendo also teased new multiplayer tidbits. Through an internet or local connection, players can flutter their little wings in 3-on-3 competitive and battle royale modes.
No US release date details were given last night, but if the Japanese release date holds firm, I wouldn't be surprised if we see it stateside in early summer.

It's about time!
Sounds great. Hopefully the game plays as good as it looks.
And early summer sounds about right.
INTERNET MULTI-PLAYER??!??!?!?!?!?? YES!!!!!! This is the online play that wasn't delivered to me in Starfox 3D. Finally some multi-player that suits me. THANKS NINTENDO AND GAMEINFORMER!!!
Just three months until Pit's cheesy voice and obnoxious one-liners break your eardrums.
Looks great, considering a 3DS just for this
why is this game not out yet? when was it announced? they say this game was originally coming out within the same year the 3DS came out.
Guys the US release date has already been announced, March 23.
Can't wait! This game couldn't have better timing, my birthday is march 28!
FINALLY. This is the main reason I got a 3ds
What's taking them so long to make this game?
I hope Kid Icarus has some 2D roots from back in the day in this rendition.
sounds lame, the MP that is
Hopefully this makes up for the lack of online multiplayer in Star Fox. this game looks really good, and i cant wait for it to come out.
As usual nintendo never shows anything just super wow lol
Sounds like a game worthy of playing on the 3DS.
This just needs to come out...
Why do you say early summer? You do realize that the first day of Summer next year is July 20th, and March 23 2012 is the confirmed U.S. release date for the game...
