A well-liked Nintendo 3DS game could also be coming to Nintendo Switch quickly. Masahiro Sakurai is greatest recognized for the Super Smash Bros. collection, and that is partially as a result of that is all he is labored on since 2008 with one exception. In 2012 he, as a director, launched Kid Icarus: Uprising, the primary game within the Kid Icarus since Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters was launched in 1991 through the NES. The third and most up-to-date launch within the collection, it was notably the one game to be made by Project Sora earlier than it was shut down in 2012.

The million-dollar query is whether or not this can be a tease or not. Sakurai is thought to take part in some teasing right here and there, however it’s sufficient to have some followers on the hook.
“I know damn well to not always into things Sakurai says or does as hints. But this is pretty blatant for him to say something like this and if the man wanted to I am sure he can walk straight into Shinya Takahashi’s office and say he wants to remaster Kid Icarus Uprising for the Switch and the project would be green light on the spot,” reads a remark in regards to the video over on Reddit. “Plus a good chunk of the staff that worked on Kid Icarus Uprising would later work on both Smash 4 and Ultimate. So it would line up with it being this Bandai Namco remake/remaster of a Nintendo they are working on, assuming the Smash team is doing the remaster.
