Kid Icarus on Wii indirectly revealed by IGN

Joystiq writes:'When fans debate which of their plentiful wells Nintendo will be returning to for their next big title, Kid Icarus is always a popular suspicion. Now, IGN's Matt Casamassina has basically confirmed that it's on the way to Wii. On episode 7 of the IGN Nintendo Voice Chat podcast Casamassina says, "Of course [Nintendo is] going to have some E3 surprises. You know, Kid Icarus, for crying out loud, how many times do we have to say Kid Icarus? Kid Icarus is coming for crying out loud." '

I'll believe it when Nintendo says it. Hopefully they make it hard though because the nes game was dang near impossible

Kid Icarus is one of the most incredible games on the NES, and perhaps of all time. So many great memories from that game, and I had been crying for another iteration of that story and game. However, now that it may be coming back...well, I'm not totally sure that I want it to. I almost liked the idea of it being that one amazing game, which didn't need a sequel. In the age of so many sequels and remakes in movies, games, and starts to become refreshing to see something great only be made once. Kid Icarus is one of those awesome franchises that never became "exploited".

So, I have mixed feelings.

If true no matter how good the game is, certain individuals will still hate on it for

a) not being new IP
b) not having mature themes
c) not looking as good as it could have on the PS3 or 360

IF ITS TRUE, that is. I have always been a fan of the Kid. I think this would be one of looooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooongest follow ups to a game the industry has ever seen, showing up 22 or 23 years later than its predecessor. Hope no one held their breath for the sequel because they wont be alive to see the return(possibly) of Pit.

I wonder if it will attract younger gamers who have only heard of Icarus as a character in Super Smash Bros.

Now that I'm in my mid-30's I find the Nintendo library no longer appeals to me - I never even finished Zelda Twilight Princess on the 'Cube.

I think the same is true for many current gamers who cut their teeth on the Atari and NES - we prefer more mature content.

What I'm saying is that this will be essentially a new IP because it will be a completely new audience. I have full confidence that Nintendo will make a great game that will do well - it just won't be as easy of a sell as Metroid or Zelda.
