Long-lost NES hero returns

Smash Bros website provides new shots and details on Nintendo's long-lost NES hero

Today's update on the official Smash Bros. Brawl website brings new screenshots and info on Pit, the mythical greek hero from long-lost NES classic Kid Icarus.

According to his official bio, Pit's trusty bow, the 'Sacred Bow of Palutena', fires beams of light and players can actually control the curve of their trajectory. For close-up combat Pit can separate his bow into two blades - though we doubt he'll be quite as brutal as fellow Greek Kratos.

As always you can find the new screens and art below, and looking out for more updates next week.
