The scene with the Queen of Darkness is epic.

If the 3DS has an SSD or the gamecards are fast to read they could get the Unreal Engine going. One word: awes... no. Splendifferous!

Hmm...It sure looks interesting. But what happened to his spammy projectile? :D

not to poo on anyone's parade but the 3D thing seems so gimmicky and not at all exciting whatsoever. anyone agree?

I was hoping for a prettied up side scroller remake like they did to blastermaster.

Unfortunately it looks ugly and shallow--especially weighting the expectations after last E3 movies.

Wow this doesn't look good at all. No no no. I will NOT Be getting this one.. wow how could they get Metroid mostly right on the Wii but fail so badly on this one? This is one series not to revive if this is what it's going to be. Wow.

why would they give him a gun? Do they think gun games have been selling so giving pitt a gun makes him more likely to sell?

No bow no buy. Does not look like he is using a bow at all its more like a gun and than some more guns.. Thats what sin and punishment is for Nintendo. I was so exited but I am no longer.. heck the bow action from Resident Evil on the 3DS looks way better.

I have to agree with slimskelter, I was looking more towards a Zelda style of gameplay. with Kid Icarus tweaks of course. This still looks fun but I don't like the control scheme at all. I never liked using a touch screen to aim, and move the camera. moving the camera is the bigger issue, I don't like the sliding to turn thing. I would much rather have the courser move in the same location as I am on the touch screen.

You're all crazy. You want Kid Ic as a shooter on rails? Man, I don't care how pretty it looks, this shoulda been an Ocarina of Time type of adventure.

Looks a lot like sin and punishment which is a good point. So as long as Pit can do barrel rolls, I'm buying it! Besides, stylus controls >> dual analogs

It looks fantastic. It has definitely improved since E3. Pit walks funny in Smash Bros. Brawl too, so it's nothing new. I think it's because the wind gets caught in his wings as he walks and raises him up somewhat.

This game looks great! The control scheme reminds me of Metroid Prime: Hunters for DS, only in 3rd person.

Why does he walk like a horse and stand as if he has to pee?

There's only one game that I'll be looking forward to be in 3DS and that is Monster Hunter.

It seems a bit off but nonetheless it will be fun! I cant wait to see how the final product comes out

@neon_tiger It will look good thats for sure, if anything, looking at it in 3D will make it beautiful

I'm still not sure about this one. The gameplay looks a bit awkward, and I was sort of expecting a different kind of game for Pit's comeback. The graphics look pretty strong, but there are definitely some framerate issues. Also, what's up with the machinegun sounds? But we'll see when it comes out. I'm still looking forward to see how it turns out in the end.

Seeing this actually made me want to play it less, the sky sequence looked like a lack luster Star Fox and when he lands on the ground, why does he hobble around?

I almost want to buy a 3DS for this

I'm getting some Star Fox vibes from this. Not that that's a bad thing.

It's like Kid Icarus meets Legend of Zelda and Sin & Punishment. But it's great. :)

Looks awesome! But Pit looks funny while he's skipping :P

I've seen it already, and every time I go, woa that would be amazing in 3D. The fact that I can take this everywhere is probably the biggest positive, not the "no glasses" thing. PS3 has that, and I'm not as excited for that. But maybe it's just 'cause of the games..... just maybe.
