Thankfully, Nintendo is releasing a new “Kid Icarus” game for its 3DS portable system in the near future, but in the meantime, independent studio Flip Industries developed and created a 16-bit remake (a’la Super NES) of the classic NES title entitled “Super Kid Icarus.” This only has me imagine how awesome a Super NES version of the game would have been, but at least you can play it now. HERE. FOR FREE. Can it get better than that?!?
Honestly, I’ve only played the original “Kid Icarus” on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) once. ONCE!!! I really enjoyed it. However, other than the Game Boy version (which I never played), there have not been any new Kid Icarus games since Also, NO; (the “Kid Icarus” main character) Pit being a playable character in “Super Smash Bros. Brawl” on the Wii doesn’t count.
