Game Profile

A Light-hearted Adventure With Mythical Challenges!

All of Angel Land is up to it halos in woes! Mythical monsters are running rampant and Pit, the original Kid Icarus, must save the realm again. Armed with his trusty bow, he'll zap the bad guys and find the three magical treasures hidden by Palutena. Only after this grueling training will he be strong enough to take on the dark forces behind Angel Land's troubles.

Pit will encounter old friends and new enemies, from helpful Centurions to the dreaded Eggplant Wizard, as he journeys from the depths of the underworld to the towers of the sky palace. Find hammers to shatter special walls and reveal helpful items. Collect hearts by fighting off Pit's foes. Train hard and battle harder. Pit's challenges make the labors of Hercules look like a walk in the park!
