    Andriasang has reported that the editors of Famitsu magazine have scored the new Kid Icarus Uprising game (Nintendo 3DS) a perfect 40. The game now takes its place among the likes of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Final Fantasy XII as part of a short list of games that have, in the past, received perfect scores from the renowned Japanese gaming publication.

    Damn I gotta get a 3DS. I've been waiting for a flashcart to come out, or for E3 to come around and see what kind of redesign that will undoubtedly be announced, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to hold out that long. This game looks like it's going to be a quality one.

    I tried this game at the 3DS stands before it actually came out around January or December last year, the game was really awesome, although kinda hard to figure out for a first time leftie I easily got used to the controls and stuff, the game looked really nice tho. =3
    Right now I'm scrapping off money to see if I'm able to get it on release day. ='D

    TBH at first I thought there is not much to the game but these last videos looked so deep and awesome.

    Personally I cannot wait for the game...

    POWER ABUSE! You should get de-admind and BANNED!

    I guess someone could combine this thread with the other one?

    I thought there was like some bit of problem with Famitsu a while back and a game they reviewed, I know it's off topic but if anybody has any idea what I'm talking about, please refresh me.

    Anyways, I'm getting this game. With a steady cash flow, it feels nice to be able to buy games lol. It looks fun and such, but is it controlled like a rails game?

    The Kid Icarus To-Do List:

    1- preorder the game to get a code for the NES original in 3D
    2- pre-register at club nintendo for extra coins
    3- go here for free Kid Icarus AR cards http://kidicarus.nintendo.com/uprising/explore-the-game/arcards.html#giveaway
    4- Use your 3DS in a Best Buy (probably some other stores) to access Nintendo Zone for 10% off coupon (pretty sure it's valid w/ Kid Icarus)

    Did all of that but the last step. Don't know if amazon will take that but I'm not near any best buys anyways.

    i think it should read "Famitsu also gives Kid Icarus Perfect Score".
    I can accept that its a great game but 40/40 shouldnt be taken seriously. some strict reviewing would have given it less but it seems famitsu has become lenient.

    Never gave a damn about site reviews. I'll review the game myself, thanks. The best thing game reviews are usually good for is posting new images of the game (even though they might try to make it look really good/really bad).

    Didn't they give Nintendogs a perfect score?

    Yeah, it doesn't mean too much...
