Kid Icarus Battle Squad – Brighton Report

Today saw the Kid Icarus Battle squad visit Brighton HMV for some further rounds of one on one tournaments, AR card battles and giveaways. Whilst reportedly a little quieter than previous visits to London, Reading and Birmingham, the Brighton leg of the tour attracted a number of Nintendo fans, young and old, all keen to unleash their Kid Icarus skills on the Battle Squad champion Adam.

Personally I didn’t do too well, losing as the first one up against Adam and as someone with less experience and knowledge of the games array of weapons I only beat a few players, but I did manage to win a few AR cards in card battles. Myself and some keen Kid Icarus fans played our own one on one battles and a Dark (Battle Squad members) vs Light (us visitors) match up encouraged a large number of on-lookers to see what all the excitement was about. Nintendo fans including visitors from Wales and nearby Crawley, as well as Brighton, swapped friend codes, clocked up Street Pass hits and compared Kid Icarus game progress ensuring much fun was had by all.

Next week the Battle Squad will be at MCM and I am told that due to the overall success of the tour more dates are likely to be added soon. If there’s an event near you then make sure you attend to take on Adam, Wez and the squad. It was great meeting you guys there today and if you were there say hi in the comments below. Some pictures from event are below.
