    Although Kid Icarus: Uprising lead designer Masahiro Sakurai confirmed he has no plans to make a sequel to his third-person shooter for Nintendo 3DS, he never said he wasn't going to port the game to other platforms. Kid Icarus: Uprising would probably function well on Nintendo's upcoming console, mainly because of its 6.2 touchscreen controller, and Amazon.fr is currently listing the game for Wii U.

    So the game is going to be upscaled to death? Or were there HD models during production?

    Are they just running off a rumor or is Amazon just busy doing it's own thing?

    Anyone have anymore information for this? Because I all I am finding is the same news posted here about Amazon.

    Unless solid evidence is shown that a Wii U version really is in development, I really, REALLY doubt that it exists.

    Obviously the Cover is a mockup and Amazon does this from to time, but this mockup was not made by amazon.fr because the cover bears the US ESRB logo and not the European PEGI or German USK one.

    the graphics would have no problem since 3ds runs at 1080P, 30 FPS (or was it 60 fps?)

    though even if it is true, I probably won't get it unless I can like transfer my save data or something.

    I think it is an error. It is actually for 3DS. I bet.

    Yes. Nothing says port of Kid Icarus: Uprising to the WII U with a bland image displayed on a WII box.

    It's just an obvious mistake.

    I'm calling bluff on amazon. Nintendo had plenty of time of opportunities to mention it, and I bet they would have announced it even if it was just an idea.

    Sounds legit.

    Otherwise a port of a game that's not even a year old sounds fan-fucking-tastic.

    see the part at the bottom that says "not official box art"? I would say it is safe to assume it is something Amazon France probably knocked up themselves

    I don't buy it for a second. As much as I would love a sequel to Uprising, A) it's way too early, B) Sakurai already said he's not making another one (so if this is real, he wouldn't be working on it), and C) aside from NSMB2/NSMBU, it's not like Nintendo to make a game and then pump a sequel into production right after.

    It's likely just a mistake. Tons of sites list games for pre-order even though they don't actually exist.

    I don't buy this for a bit. But I'd love if it was real, I've always liked Kid Icarus.

    Doubt its real, but it would be awesome. I could finally properly control Pit....instead of just wildly slashing the touch screen and getting aced by 12 year olds online
