Kid Icarus: Uprising Features Metroids...Sort Of
Attack of the killer Komaytos.
While playing Kid Icarus: Uprising last week, we couldn't help but notice enemies that bore a striking resemblance to those bothersome Metroid creatures.
This is no coincidence, of course. The monster in question, the Komayto, first appeared in the original NES Kid Icarus. Here, they function similar to Metroids, latching onto Pit and draining his health, forcing you to shake the buggers off.
Just another reason to love this game. Check out the official Metroid/Komayto trailer below, and remember to circle Uprising's March 23 release date on your calendar.
