Kid Icarus: Uprising Plastic Stand Coming To U.S.
On this stand, all hope rests.
Yesterday, we reported news of Nintendo bundling a funky plastic stand with each copy of Kid Icarus: Uprising in Japan.
Turns out, the company plans to include the stand in the U.S. as well, and free of charge.
The stand addresses concerns of the game being uncomfortable to play. Personally, we didn't feel that way, but from Nintendo's standpoint, the more people it can satisfy, the better.
Nintendo is including a free stand with all copies of the Kid Icarus: Uprising game for the Nintendo 3DS system. The stand holds the Nintendo 3DS at an angle above any flat surface and provides players with a comfortable option for playing. The game's control scheme was designed to fit the game's unique blend of flight, shooting and melee combat, and offers tremendous precision. Our product testing demonstrated that players found the stand to be comfortable and enjoyable.
Kid Icarus: Uprising hits shelves March 23.
