In their latest podcast, called "Nintendo Voice Chat," the IGN crew hinted pretty strongly at a Wii Kid Icarus
game. At about the 12:30 mark in the March 18th show, the group turns to Reggie's mysterious E3 surprise
. "Could be Kid Icarus,
" Matt Casamassina said, "We've already chatted about that -- don't know if it's going to be that. We do
know that that game exists."
Here, Matt seems to be referring to the previous week's Wii-k in Review
(ugh), in which he said that Kid Icarus
would "absolutely" be on the Wii in 2008. Any sources? Of course not! "The rumors are out there," he said. Is he using his own rumor from a previous week as confirmation?
We wouldn't be surprised about a Kid Icarus
game at this point, if only because people are so crazy about the rumor
now. But we'll just say that Nintendo does not
care about the franchise, or there would have been a third game by now. That means that they would undoubtedly
be outsourcing it -- to Factor 5 or someone else.
