Kid-Icarus Is Dead... Again
In 1986, the first Kid Icarus game came out for the NES. It took a little over twenty five years for a sequel to come out, keeping fans waiting in the wings all the while. So what does Nintendo think about continuing the Kid Icarus series? Not much apparently.
In a recent email interview with IGN, Masahiro Sakurai was asked whether or not he had future plans for the Kid Icarus universe. His response was a simple no: “We pushed a lot into the game in order to let people have this short yet deep experience, but the novelty of that would likely grow thin in the next game. For now, my thought is that perhaps we'll see someone else besides me make another Kid Icarus in another 25 years.”
Sorry Pit fans. Looks like you’re out of luck. Still, it’s likely that we will see Pit make an appearance in the new Smash Bros. project, and it’s always possible that he will make guest appearances in other games as well. We will just have to wait and see what Nintendo has in store for us at this year’s E3.
