Kid Icarus: Uprising Sequel Unlikely


Kid Icarus: Uprising creator Masahiro Sakurai has said that a sequel is unlikely.

Speaking to IGN, Sakurai stated the following:

“If by ‘lasting universe’ you mean to ask if there’s a sequel, the answer is 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.”

He also explained that he was happy about how the game turned out whilst praising how the game’s light-hearted nature also matched the series traditions.

“No matter how much you change a game’s genre and whatnot for the times, it’s vital you never lose your respect for the original game, With the first Kid Icarus, it’s not a serious adventure – it has a more humorous bent to it, one you don’t see in the original Legend of Zelda and Metroid that came out that generation. To embody that in a modern style, we made efforts not to have it seem like a run-of-the-mill battle – the story flow is really daring and unfolds in crazy ways that don’t pay too much attention to the setting.”
