    IGN's Matt Casamassina has said again that Kid Icarus is coming to the Wii on episode 7 of the IGN Nintendo Voice Chat podcast. "Of course [Nintendo is] going to have some E3 surprises. You know, Kid Icarus, for crying out loud, how many times do we have to say Kid Icarus? Kid Icarus is coming for crying out loud." said Matt. Matt has previously said that the developer is Factor 5 but when asked by a co-host who it was he said "I think we've confirmed it a billion times but no, I'm not going to say it officially."

    He also said in the past week's show:
    "Kid Icarus, that's another one that I'm really anticipating just because I love the franchise and I'm sure that the developer will make a really pretty game."

    This is news? Matt has been going on about this for a year now, but I have to say I reckon its all true. I don't think that it is gonna be Nintendos big game and nor will Animal Crossing. Just a feeling I'm getting.

    This is said to be artwork from the game: http://wii.kombo.com/media.php?gameid=1499&type=1

    Factor 5 have a great history so I do hope it is them who are doing it, though Lair was a bit turdy.

    Yeah, i'm a big fan of the original, although will be interesting what Factor 5 (if its them developing it) actually do with the game, a Zelda Style adventure, or a more level based game, who knows.

    This one is the best IMO cuz it's so close to the NES and GameBoy design

    when is E3 again? Nintendo has been really low these days, saying nothing.

    Let's hope they have more then Kid Icarus to show (if its going to show that is)

    i really love the gameboy kid Kid Icarus game, only problem i have with the art work is it makes Kid Icarus look like a man, but his name is Kid Icarus i think they will have to chnage what he looks like imo art is good though.

    edit: lol factor 5 made lair on the ps3...there is no hope for this game then....

    Why? Factor 5 isn't just making games for sony, they have made games for Nintendo also.

    So there is a hope.

    Before Lair, Factor 5 made some good games for the Game Cube!
    Also they made Professor Layton!

    Yeah I've read about this before, I thought it was cool that they decided to bring Kid Icarus back.
    But I'm sure this isn't Nintendo's Big Surprise.

    This game should be good though, any idea if it's still a 2D platformer?
