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. For now, my thought is that perhaps we’ll see someone else besides me make another Kid Icarus in another 25 years.”
Kid Icarus: Uprising was released in March in which the gamers take on the forces of Medusa, combining air-based target shooting with grounded platforming. The game also featyres a multiplayer mode of up to 6 3DS owners can team up 3 against 3.
