Kid Icarus launches Nintendo 3DS

Smash Bros. creator, Masahiro Sakurai reveals new entry

Nintendo's unveiled a brand new Kid Icarus game for Nintendo 3DS, headed up by Smash Bros. creator, Masahiro Sakurai.

The game looks part on-rails shooter, part on foot action game - and it's definitely pretty. We're talking Wii-quality graphics.

Kid Icarus was originally a 1987 side-scroller featuring a small angel boy fighting the snake-haired Medusa.

Nintendo said the game's "coming soon", so we're guessing it won't be a 3DS launch title.
