Nintendo Teams up with HMV (UK) to Offer Kid Icarus: Uprising Multiplayer Action

Nintendo UK has today announced a series of Kid Icarus: Uprising multiplayer events taking place in HMV stores around the UK, giving fans the chance to battle it out against the expert Kid Icarus: Uprising Battle Squad. The first event takes place from 12.00-16.00 this Saturday 28th April at HMV in Oxford Circus.

Fans need to take along their Nintendo 3DS console, competitive spirit and choose their favourite weapon, ready to join the battle. The Squad is made up of different skill levels to allow for fair competition and includes a pro gamer to challenge even the most experienced Kid Icarus: Uprising players.

Everyone who takes part will earn a limited edition Kid Icarus: Uprising poster. If a player defeats the Squad and wins a battle, they will be able to take home a set of AR Cards to boost their collection. The Kid Icarus: Uprising AR Cards are highly sought after – so make sure you get practising!

Nintendo is also launching a free prize draw via Twitter: all fans need to do is have their photo taken with the Squad in HMV and tweet it on the same day to @KidIcarusUK using the hashtag #KidIcarusBattleSquad to be in with a chance of winning one of six £50 HMV vouchers. All Nintendo 3DS owners are encouraged to head down to the events and take their console to StreetPassTM with other fans.

  1. HMV Oxford Circus – Saturday 28th April
  2. HMV Reading Oracle – Saturday 5th May
