Kid Icarus: Uprising prototype footage. This clip from a pre-production version of the game, shown in an Iwata Asks, reveals a shockingly clear vision for what the game would become. I mean, sure, Pit moves in the final game, and there’s stuff to shoot, but this is almost shot for shot Chapter 1’s air battle. Here’s a prototype land battle.
That English Iwata Asks interview has been stealthily updated since release, as well. There’s a lot of really interesting stuff about Masahiro Sakurai’s design style, his influences, his ideas for writing the script (which he apparently did on his own) and even a little bit about how the AR cards work.
