The Uprisen blog is reporting that Gamestop Canada now has a release date for their "Kid Icarus: Uprising" entry (6/19/2011). (Conversely, Gamestop America doesn't have a date, as of this writing.) If nothing else, it gives players a quasi-frame of reference to work with. Until there is an update or news to the contrary, prepare for 6/19/2011, Uprising fans.

Update: Upon reflection, I probably should have clarified a little more in the Subject line. After all, it isn't an official announcement, per se. In all likelihood, it probably will be around the 19th, and Gamestop is rather reliable, so. Blame my haste and my excitement for specifics. Heh.

Here is the E3 2010 trailer of Kid Icarus: Uprising, courtesy of YouTube. Apologies for the entry's lateness, as my attention has been elsewhere. Enjoy.

For more current news, Warp Zoned.com is reporting that a playable Uprising demo is available at PAX East (which started today). Many new demo videos will spring forth, I'm sure. I'll post on them, whenever they surface. Special thanks to the Uprisen blog.

Here is another Kid Icarus website I found, which focuses heavily on the original game. It is a good place to start for Icarus newbies, along with a cute sense of humor and lots of goodies. Enjoy.

Here is a rather spiffy blog, spotlighting "Kid Icarus: Uprising." It offers many essential "Uprising" tidbits, and updates quite often. No Kid Icarus fan should do without.

Nota bene: In a recent post, the blog states "Uprising"'s release date is June 19, 2011. According to Gamer Buzz.com, the release date is for June 2nd. The link is worth your time, regardless, per multiple preview videos and insightful "Uprising" gameplay criticism. If anyone can confirm the actual release date, as I can't seem to nail it down, much appreciated.

Apparently, the wait for a new Kid Icarus game is almost over, as the Wikipedia link informs:

Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kid_Icarus:_Uprising

Quite a few links and tidbits within that deserve separate entries, which I'll cover. (The initial excitement can be done with this entry.) Either way, get your Nintendo 3DSs ready for 2011-2012.

Per the previous entry, I was reading further into the Kid Icarus wikipedia page, and I discovered this interesting tidbit:

The English version of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, he has a deeper-sounding teenaged voice. In the Japanese version, Pit is voiced by Minami Takayama. Pit's English voice is provided by Lani Minella, most commonly known as the voice actress of Rouge the Bat in the Sonic the Hedgehog series.

I haven't heard the audio, yet, so I can't personally comment. Either way, I think it's fascinating and a tad bizarre that he is voiced by Rouge the Bat. (Of course, it's commonplace in voice acting, as women are often hired to voice younger male characters.) Either way, if anyone is up for a discussion about the matter, and/or the fact Pit finally has an English voice actor, do so here.

For a lark, I punched up Kid Icarus on wikipedia, today. The page itself is actually quite informative with all sorts of essential links. (I'll try to explore some of them into actual entries whenever I have more time.)

I have been re-playing the original NES game, recently, so I'll post similarly themed entries in the meantime. It has been quite an experience, I must say.

Hey guys,

Just a quick post from me. I'm looking for a co-mod for the comm to help look after it when I'm away. I know it's not high traffic here or anything, but still message me if interested :D
