After 20 years, the series returns in full 3D, thanks to Sakurai. Unlike the previous 2 games, this is not a side scrolling platformer, I don't know what it is actually. It's separated into chapters where you are on an on-rail flight and then a rush to the boss on foot. It acts like a shooter with more focus on weapon types and just bashing enemies. However it is incredibly fun, especially the melee function. This is also the first Kid Icarus to include multiplayer. I'm not gonna explain everything, it's best to play it for yourself and learn to love it on your own. But I will conclude with this, I highly recommend it.
The controls are a bit weird, but I got used to them pretty fast. Great storyline with funny humor. Good graphics and really fun combat. My favorite thing about this game is all of the weapons. The weapons are the thing that is really in depth in this game. 9 weapon types, stats for the weapons, can merge weapons, and a whole lot more. The multiplayer is really fun too. My favorite game so far on the 3ds.
