I’m beginning to think I may in fact be missing out by not getting Nintendo Power, as there was a nice little snippet in the back of an article that said this:
While some suggest this new project is likely to be a return to the Metroid franchise, we’d love to see another Nintendo hero get the retro stamp of excellence. After all, having rolled out the barrels for Donkey Kong, perhaps it’s time Retro pulled off a barrel roll of a different kind.
Which may just be a little joke, or it may mean Nintendo Power knows something the rest of us don’t. I think both are probably equally possible. But even bigger than that is the 8-page blowout that they came out with this month on Kid Icarus: Uprising. Nintendoeverything has typed up the massive list of details, outlining the 9 weapons, multiplayer deathmatch, StreetPass functionality and all the rest. Beware it’s a long read, but if you can’t be bothered to go out and buy a copy of Nintendo Power and you still really want some Kid Icarus details, go take a look.
