A group of students worked to renew the appearance of the NES title.

Kid Icarus Remake

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:

If you like how it looks, take into account that you can try it on your PC. To run it, you will need Windows 7 in a 64-bit version, 4GB of RAM, a GTX Geforce 560 card or Radeon HD 6950, as well as at least 2GB of free space. The game is compatible only with the keyboard and its download weighs a total of 790 MB.
