Kid Icarus: Uprising on Nintendo 3DS

To celebrate Pit’s return, Nintendo of America is hosting a series of multiplayer tournaments at select GameStop stores in four major U.S. cities, culminating in a championship round played in New York City where fans will be able to buy the game a day early.

Regional competitions will be held in San Francisco (March 8), Orlando, Fla., (March 11), Los Angeles (March 15) and New York (March 22), with the New York event also acting as the finals. Winners from each of the four markets will be eligible to win prizes including an all-expenses-paid trip to New York to participate in the national championship and a variety of exclusive Kid Icarus-themed items. Even if they are not participating in tournament play, consumers will be able to visit GameStop tournament locations to play Kid Icarus: Uprising before its nationwide launch on March 23.
