    Sitting here playing MP the last couple of days, and loving it, I find myself wondering why Kid Icarus never saw a follow-up title on any of the other systems?

    It seems like a fan favorite everywhere you go and yet Nintendo has never given a sequel. Does anyone know why?

    I think that there was talk of it at one point on the N64, but I haven't heard anything in a while.

    This game was awesome. If memory serves, I put in a helpful password of 'Icarus Fights Medusa Angels' to help get through the game.

    I'd love to see a sequel. A GBA Kid Icarus would be pretty neat as well.

    There was a Kid Icarus sequel. It came out on GameBoy in '91, iirc.

    I'd love to see an update to that. If they can update Rygar then surely they update this...

    There are some who work at Nintendo that have Kid Icarus on their minds as Pit did appear in Smash Bros. Melee as a trophy:

    I have a feeling that Pit will one day fly again! In the mean time check out this fansite, The Kid Icarus Shrine, for some memories. [​IMG]

    It took me two years to beat that game. Thought it was one of the greatest feats (or lack thereof) I've ever done.
