    It's obviously copying Kid Icarus, but it looks nice, I just don't understand exactly what they are doing with the gameplay.. from the description, it sounds like it has a lot of unnecessary motion controls..

    It's by a new spanish company.. so, I don't know what to expect. Here's the official website: http://www.icariangame.com/

    They're still doing a new Kid Icarus, they're just taking forever to officially announce it.
    Looks pretty cool though, may well be worth playing [​IMG].
