12 Fans Make A Kid Icarus Remake in 7 Weeks As A School Project
Kid Icarus debuted for NES in 1987 and became one of the classic titles of Nintendo. Despite this, the series had a long absence, which ended with the arrival of Kid Icarus: Uprising to 3DS in 2012. If you have ever imagined playing a remake of the first installment, you should know that a group of students made a demo that looks pretty good.
Kid Icarus fans worked for 7 weeks to develop the trial version of approximately 20 minutes. In it, they have recreated various scenarios and a couple of enemies of the original game. To make this project a reality, the help of 12 people in total was needed.
You can control Pit and use your bow to kill several creatures and activate switches. You can also use a shield to protect yourself and experiment with platform mechanics. Below you can see a video of this remake:
