3DS owners, Kid Icarus: Uprising major sale!

Coffee Beans
I don't own a 3DS, but I know a decent deal when I spot one. Kid Icarus: Uprising is on sale for about the next 12 hours at BestBuy.com. How good is the sale? Best Buy has the game listed at 63% off its MSRP of $39.99, including free shipping with the sale price. This means for the next 12 hours, you can get a new copy of Kid Icarus: Uprising for your Nintendo 3DS for just $14.99; that's right $14.99 with free shipping!

You can grab the deal HERE.

Do any of you already own a copy of Kid Icarus: Uprising, and if so, would you recommend the game to other Nintendo 3DS owners that have been interested in the game, but just haven't purchased it yet?


  1. It's a great game with SO much replay value, totally worth the $15. That isn't to say it's without limitations, but the flaws are minor, at least to me.

  2. Absolutely. This game has been one of my two or three favorite 3DS games since getting the system. I had pre-ordered mine (which worked out well as a deal by someone else on Amazon had caused Amazon not only to chop $10 off of the purchase price, but I got the pre-order bonus of Kid Icarus' original NES outing in 3D as well).

    The control scheme is less-than-ideal, but the game itself is a lot of fun. My son's beaten it as well, so it's been a hit with both of us.

  3. Erg... A sale is calling my name especially at 63% off! Trying to balance how much I'm putting on my Wii Shop account for all these VC games I want vs retail and 3DS eShop.


  4. I had read some good comments on it before, and had some conversations about it. If I had a 3DS, I would have purchased it immediately at this price.

    Thanks for the comment/feedback on it!

  5. "...but I got the pre-order bonus of Kid Icarus' original NES outing in 3D as well"
    That's pretty cool, didn't realize Amazon had the pre-order bonus for the original on the system as well.

    "The control scheme is less-than-ideal, but the game itself is a lot of fun."
    I read comments on both sides, it seems to be one of those "middle of the road" issues. Some fans of the game have gotten used to the controls, and really enjoy them and see why they are what they are...others still think they could have been changed/improved.

    The game did support the Circle Pad Pro for controls right? I don't really remember hearing how well they worked though...

    Thanks for the comment/feedback!

  6. Keeping you incomplete, one game at a time! Just a little over an hour for you to grab it. Never know, perhaps Best Buy messes up and fails itself on this sale like they did with Mrs. Coffee's Metroid: Other M purchase for me over Christmas.

    Speaking of purchases....gonna be making one here shortly. Staying incomplete!

  7. Actually, unless an update was made to the game, it's support for the circle pad was not dual stick, but lefty-play. I think the one hand, one stylus play is required whether you have the addon or not - though I don't have it and can't say 100% for sure. My son and I both got used to it pretty quickly. A lot of people complained that long sessions left their wrist and hand cramped and sore, but neither of us had that issue - and he played it like 6 hours the day I got it.


Keep the comments clean. Rated "E" for Everyone. :)
