The new trailer for the long-awaited “Kid Icarus: Uprising” shows what could be a very fun game that lets players fight a bunch of monsters while somehow manages to include at least one robot-like device in a world that’s inspired by Greek mythology.
It also features some of the cheesiest writing in gaming history. At first I wondered if the writing was just bad, then I realized it was intentionally bad.
Or maybe this is just Nintendo’s way of tying to convince people to stop asking for voice acting in Zelda games.
Here are just a few lines:
- “I don’t want to be an eggplant again.”
- “If he deep fries you, keep your distance. One bite, and you’ll be finished.”
- “It was bad enough when the dark forces were contained in the underworld.”
- “Get ready for a display of raw angel power.”
