One of the better 3D Classics games out there. It's difficult but stick with it and you'll reap the benefits.
Nintendo Life
Kid Icarus was always a lot of fun, but for some reason it never really reached huge levels of popularity like its cousin Metroid. This 3D Classics version is almost identical, but small additions and tweaks like the new backgrounds, 3D effect, high score table and save files ensure that it's worth a look even for those who already played the original to death. Now, about that Game Boy sequel on the 3DS Virtual Console...

Take a break from plumbers, swordsmen, and bounty hunters and set some time aside to discover a classic worthy of that title.
Nintendo Difference
Kid Icarus est un titre combinant la plate-forme de Mario, l'aventure de Zelda et l'action de Metroid, pour un résultat efficace, sans toutefois se hisser au même niveau que ses illustres aînés. À essayer pour les joueurs désireux de connaître la genèse de la série, d'autant plus que les ajouts de cette réédition la rendent bien plus agréable à parcourir.
Eifrige 3DS-Spieler können 3D Classics: Kid Icarus bis Ende Januar umsonst bekommen. Alles, was sie dafür tun müssen, ist, zwei von 13 Nintendo-Spielen auf der offiziellen Website registrieren. Darunter fallen Titel wie Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land oder auch The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. Klappt das aus dem einen oder anderen Grund doch nicht, dann wartet einfach noch ein wenig, demnächst wird es die Klassiker-Neuauflage auch regulär zu erwerben geben.
