The Kid Icarus series is something of an oddity in Nintendo's long history; it hasn't received very many entries, yet continues to endure via references in other Nintendo games and media. Pit hasn't been seen in a new game since 2012's excellent Kid Icarus: Uprising, but there's always hope that we won't have to wait another 25 years until the character steps into the limelight once again. Still, the existent three games are pretty good, and now's a great time to jump in if you haven't yet had the chance to play them.
My Nintendo in North America recently updated with some new rewards oriented around the Kid Icarus franchise, and there's some rather compelling stuff up for grabs. Those animated shorts that came out around the time of Uprising's launch are available to download, and every game in the series is discounted to some degree. Here's the new stuff:
- (Video) Kid Icarus 3D Anime: Thanatos Rising – 100 Platinum Coins
- (Video) Kid Icarus 3D Anime: Palutena's Revolting Dinner – 100 Platinum Coins
- (Video) Kid Icarus 3D Anime: Medusa's Revenge – 100 Platinum Coins
- 30% off Kid Icarus: Uprising – 80 Gold Coins
- 30% off 3D Classics: Kid Icarus – 20 Gold Coins
- 30% off Kid Icarus – 20 Gold Coins
- 30% off Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters – 10 Gold Coins
