Nintendo has revealed, via the game's creator, that there will be no sequel to Kid Icarus: Uprising, which released a few months ago on the Nintendo 3DS.
When asked about the possibility of the franchise being expanded, Masahiro Sakurai said: "If by 'lasting universe' you mean to ask if there's a sequel, the answer is no. 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."
Sakurai didn't rule out future Kid Icarus titles in the future though, but stated that it might be another 25 years until we see one. "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 one of the first titles announced for the Nintendo 3DS, and it was the cause for much excitement amongst Nintendo's older fans.
