Always like Sakurai. He brought back kid icuras. Which I think actually saved the 3ds. If smash boosts the wiiu sales up then I think he should run at least half of Nintendo beside miyamoto. There use to be a ton of guys like Sakurai in the industry. I wonder where they all went?

"He brought back kid icuras. Which I think actually saved the 3ds" You think? I thought it was a combination of the price cut, Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land and Ocarina of Time 3D.

Kid Icarus didn't save the 3DS.

The Price cut, Mario Kart 7, and Super Mario 3D Land did.

You guys are right but looking back I feel kid icuras did so much more right. The game even did online right. I would love to see a wiiu sequel in Sakurai hands like the one they thought about doing for the old wii.

Yeah in my mind kid icuras was what truly got me hype about the system and even the add on stick. This guy makes my style of games and in many ways he surpass miyamoto.

A sequel with dual analog controls would be great.

Everything about Kid Icarus is absolutely amazing with the exception of the controls.

As for Miyamoto vs Sakurai ... Miyamoto's contribution to gaming far exceeds anything Sakurai has done. No offense to Sakurai.

You may be right but I see Sakurai as the right guy to keep nintendo going. It's safe to say they make a crazy good team though.

I find nothing wrong with the controls.
Kid Icarus Uprising isn't a typical rail
/third person shooter or action game.

The game rely on high precision, always moving and non-stop action online.

I am actually one the best players online. Probably the best in US. Had itsince day one.

Adding the option for dual controls would only help the game.
