Kid Icarus sequel unlikely

Kid Icarus: Uprising director Masahiro Sakurai told IGN that he thinks the wait for Kid Icarus’ next adventure. Sakurai quickly squashed the notion saying: “If by ‘lasting universe’ you mean to ask if there’s a sequel, the answer is no, because 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.
