Despite strong sales
and positive reception
, it seems a Kid Icarus: Uprising
sequel just isn't in the cards right now. Masahiro Sakurai, the game's director, has said that it's possible we could see another Kid Icarus game
in the next 25 years, but not from his studio, Project Sora.
"If by 'lasting universe' you mean to ask if there's a sequel, the answer is no," Sakurai told IGN
, "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."
25 years is a long time, but we're sure Kid Icarus: Rerising
will really rock the 8DS when it drops in 2037.
