It's been a long 25 years for fans of Nintendo's heroic little greek dude, but Kid Icarus Uprising
is finally on the horizon, and Nintendo has some new details on the story and single player. As you might have guesses, Medusa is back with an army of underworld denizens and it's up to Pit and the goddess Palutena to send them back. The game has a dynamic difficulty slider you can adjust between levels, just in case you feel the default setting is too easy. The method of doing so is interesting--you must bet the heart points you collect in the game, and if you die during a chapter, the game takes those hearts and busts you down a difficulty level.
Uprising will also come with a stand for the 3DS, maybe for maintaining the perfect viewing angle? I'm not too clear on why you'd need a stand for a portable system. Uprising is also compatible with the Circle Pad Pro, the chunky add-on peripheral that gives the 3DS an extra analog pad and shoulder buttons.
