Nintendo of America has revealed there is a feature in Kid Icarus: Uprising known as ‘Fiend’s Cauldron’ that allows you to increase the intensity of the game at the cost of hearts. Players are able to gain more hearts and more powerful weapons as the intensity increases, so there is a benefit to increasing the level. However, losing in a chapter will cause you to lose hearts and will cause the intensity level to decrease. It was also shared that Kid Icarus as a 3D Classic will be a preorder bonus through certain retailers in North America.
There is new footage and screenshots after the break.
