Rumortoid: Kid Icarus Wii renders leaked, look Ass-tastic

Feb 01 // Jonathan Holmes

Yikes.

These renders could be completely fake, they could be part of a pitch from Factor 5 to Nintendo, or they could be an actual work in progress from a new Kid Icarus game, but no matter how you slice it, they're pretty hard to look at. The Wii can handle just about everything but realistic looking graphics, so to dump the perfectly acceptable Pit design from Super Smash Bros. Brawl in favor of this fugly Man Icarus would just be bad buisness.

If this is the direction that Nintendo wants to go with the next Kid Icarus title, I hope they wait for the Wii 2 before they put the game out.  Turning Pit into a muscular man would still be a deformation of the Kid Icarus I grew up with, but at least it would be deformation presented in glorious high-defintion.
