Just bought the game thanks to the sale at Best Buy. I'll pick it up after work. Two quick questions, do a lot of people still play the multiplayer mode? and does anyone have a good custom control setting they can recommend for us newbies?

I forgot my settings, I'll check when I get home tonight and let you know. They definitely need some tinkering.

As for the multiplayer, I haven't played in months, but I suggest you not hop online right away, because a lot of people must have powerful weapons and powers online right now.

What's the multiplayer like, is it worth it? Are they any sort of co-op modes?

@Mop it up

Multiplayer isn't paticularly special, but it's solid enough. Light vs Dark is pretty interesting. And it's worth sticking with for a bit if only to unlock powers & treasure hunt requirements.

The multi has a rather strong online presence and a lot of people can get REALLY into it (i.e. spending hours and hours on trying to fuse the perfect weapon). I'm more of a Solo player myself but Together mode might be your thing.

No Co-Op though, although you do work on teams for one of the multi modes.

Alright I just got home (lol...), here's the setup I use for Kid Icarus.

First of all, change up on the dpad to 'use power'.

In air battle settings, slide the top slider all theway right. The second slider should be to the before-last bar on the left.

For land battle, he top two sliders should moved to the before-last bar on the right. The lower slider should be to the before-last bar on the left.

Let me know how it feels for you!

@TriforceBun Thanks mate. I consider team modes to be co-op since you have to work together with other players, but I know that isn't what people typically consider co-op. If you join a 3DS friend, will you always be on the same team?

@Mop it up

I think at the start you may be on opposing teams, but my experience is that they group you as soon as is practical. I could be wrong though.

@anon_mastermind Thanks! I'll take a look and let you know what I think.
Posted: 09/10/12, 04:29:25
Let me know if anyone ever wants to get a game going. I'd like to try the multi more.

Awesome matches with Kris and HL today! Spending the last half of the match as an Angel running away from Kris=fun. I whipped his ass the rest of the time though.

Anyone interested in getting some regular KI matches going again on weekends?

Great matches indeed! I'd jump in. It would be also interesting to test the Light vs Dark mode with voice chat, sometime.

Man, I am getting hooked into that Multiplayer again. Goodness me.
Posted: 03/10/16, 01:38:29
Are there still people online? I haven't played the multiplayer in a while, but I enjoyed my time with it quite a bit.
