You have to love the dedication of old school Nintendo fans. They'll patiently wait years and years for Nintendo to finally throw them a bone, and have been diligently keeping a candle aflame in anticipation of Kid Icarus' long overdue return. According to game developer and cheeky imp Shigeru Miyamoto, however, the wait will have to continue.
"Wait, please. I'm really surprised how popular that is," said Miyamoto when asked about a series revival last month. "But you are the first person to ask at this E3!"
With Nintendo focusing its efforts on a handful of new Mario and Zelda games, it could be quite a while before Pit makes his long-awaited return. Asking fans to "wait" is certainly better than denying there are plans, which is a good sign. It just all depends on when Nintendo will ever get around to announcing the bloody thing.
Still, the Nintendo faithful wll hold their ground, and who knows? Perhaps in fifteen years, their patience will be well rewarded.
