One of the highlights of this weekend's Nintendo World 2011 event was a Kid Icarus: Uprising presentation, during which producer Masahiro Sakurai demonstrated the game live on stage. If you'd like to see that entire half-hour presentation, Nintendo has posted it on Ustream.

If you'd prefer to just skip to the good stuff -- specifically, about five minutes of uninterrupted live gameplay -- go for the video after the break, courtesy of Nintendo 3DS Blog. And it is very good stuff, featuring both aerial and ground combat, against lots of flying eye monsters and even some boss types.
