Kid Icarus: Uprising, known in Japan as Shin Hikari Shinwa: Palutena no Kagami (_____ ______, lit. New Light Mythology: Palutena's Mirror), is a title for the Nintendo 3DS video game system, developed by Project Sora and published by Nintendo. It is the third game in the Kid Icarus series and the first since 1991's Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters, a twenty-year wait referenced in the game's announcement trailer shown at E3 2010. It was released on March 23, 2012 in North America and Europe. The game is also compatible with Circle Pad Pro and is bundled with the Nintendo 3DS Stand accessory for every copy of the game. It also uses the Nintendo Network, the first official game outside of Japan to do so. The plot of Kid Icarus: Uprising follows the angelic protagonist, Pit, as he battles against the forces of a reborn Medusa who seeks to destroy mankind. With the help of Palutena, the Goddess of Light, Pit gains the Power of Flight to travel the skies and fight the Underworld Army. Whilst dealing with Medusa's forces and commanders, the Underworld commander Pandora uses an artifact called the Mirror of Truth to create a doppelganger of Pit named Dark Pit (nicknamed Pittoo).
