For those of you who saw how well-received Kid Icarus: Uprising was and started hoping for a sequel, it's probably a good idea to dial down those expectations. Masahiro Sakurai, the director of the Nintendo 3DS game, revealed that there are currently no plans for an Uprising follow-up in a recent interview with IGN.
“If by ‘lasting universe’ you mean to ask if there's a sequel, the answer is no," he said in response to a question about the staying power of the world he built with Project Sora. He added that "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's not entirely wrong. The Nintendo 3DS game is a solid one, but it would have to see some major enhancements to make for a compelling sequel. That shouldn't stop you from playing the March 2012 game though! Just check out our Kid Icarus: Uprising review for proof.
