Do any of you already own a copy of Kid Icarus: Uprising, and if so, would you recommend the game to other Nintendo 3DS owners that have been interested in the game, but just haven’t purchased it yet?

The review was written by GameSpot, and surprisingly it is the only review counted towards Kid Icarus’ Virtual Console review score average.

Thoughts:
I do not recall playing and beating the original Kid Icarus.  I think a friend had it, and I was able to play it, just not complete it all the way through to the end.

Nintendo announced Kid Icarus: Uprising at E3 last week, for the new Nintendo 3DS; and I know many gamers were happy to see Pit returning.
Being that it has been probably two decades since I played the original, I don’t remember a lot about it; and I don’t know how much Kid Icarus: Uprising looks to be pulling from the original’s story.

The data showing on the Nintendo Channel, I think shows that Kid Icarus has a following; but if Nintendo Channel data can be used as a gauge for possible future sales, Kid Icarus: Uprising being a launch title on the 3DS is probably the best place for Pit’s return.

Questions:
Have you played the Virtual Console version and NES version of Kid Icarus?  If so, do you think one version is better than the other; like the GameSpot review says?


Also, are you planning on getting a Nintendo 3DS because of Kid Icarus: Uprising?


If you have not seen the trailer for Kid Icarus: Uprising, here’s the one Nintendo showed last week during their E3 press conference:
