We’ve got one of the new 4GB, extended battery-life, bigger-screened Nintendo 3DS™ XL consoles and a copy of the hit new game Kid Icarus™: Uprising to give away to one lucky Manga UK reader, courtesy of our friends at Nintendo. Created by Masahiro Sakurai, the man behind Super Smash Bros.™ , Kid Icarus™: Uprising features immersive 3D graphics and boundless action that up to six players can enjoy together.
In Kid Icarus™: Uprising, the angelic Pit must defend himself against the dark goddess Medusa and her malevolent Underworld Army. With help from Palutena, goddess of light and guardian of the human race, he battles enemies in the air and on the ground. Players can enhance the action with a nearly unlimited arsenal of collectible weapons, from Bows to Cannons to Claws, each with its own unique characteristics and play style. Players can also fuse weapons together, resulting in a single weapon that combines certain characteristics of the original two.
As many as six players with their own Nintendo 3DS™ XL systems and Kid Icarus™: Uprising game cards can compete against each other in new multiplayer modes. Light vs. Dark mode puts players in a three-on-three battle where they must work with their team, and Free-for-All mode where anything goes. Weapons and skills collected in single-player action carry over to multiplayer, giving players an incentive to play stages again and again to collect the best gear for multiplayer skirmishes.

a) Super Smash Bros.™
b) Super Mario Bros.™
