"Kid Icarus: Uprising" Previews Its Upcoming Anime Shorts

Japanese Twitter feed gives the lowdown on what to expect from SHAFT, Production I.G, and Studio 4ºC

It was way back in September when we learned the Nintendo 3DS action game Kid Icarus: Uprising would be receiving anime shorts by Studio 4ºC, SHAFT, and Production I.G. Now Uprising's official Twitter feed is offering a quick preview at what to expect from each. 

 

 

 

Studio 4ºC's (Tekkon Kinkreet, Mind Game) short follows Medusa, Kid Icarus' main antagonist. Going deep into Pit's past, the studio will showcase the rivalry between Medusa and Palutena, the Goddess of Light. 

 

 

On the flipside, SHAFT's (Bakemonogatari, Hidamari Sketch) short puts Palutena in the hot seat, following "her attempts to deal with a great catastrophe in her Skyworld home." Apparently the calamity in question involves a cooking challenge gone awry.

 

 

Production I.G's (Ghost in the Shell, Blood: The Last Vampire) sounds like the most straightforward action-based scenario, with Pit taking on Thanatos, one of Medusa's minions. 

 

All three shorts will be viewable in North America through the 3DS Nintendo Video service. Kid Icarus: Uprising comes out on March 23 in North America and Europe.
