Rumor: Kid Icarus was supposed to be at E3 2008, release a few months after
Kid Icarus’ speculated debut on the Wii has gone down a long and winding road. Art of what apparently was a new entry in the series for Wii was leaked quite a few months ago, and rumor after rumor kept piling up. Now word has it that Kid Icarus was scheduled to be present at E3 2008, which isn’t entirely too difficult to believe.
Though, internal problems with Factor 5 – who has been tied to the developed of the new Kid Icarus game – prevented any sort of appearance from happening. Nintendo planned on releasing the title a few months after it was revealed at E3, but that fell through as well. These issues allegedly left Nintendo of America feeling “pretty bummed.”
As of now, the game’s status is in jeopardy considering the trouble that the company has been going through lately. IGN’s Matt Casamassina suggested in the latest Nintendo Voice Chat podcast that the state of Factor 5 could lead Nintendo to purchase the company. Who knows – Perhaps doing so will be the only way that gamers will be able to see Kid Icarus from Factor 5 on the Wii.
