A portion of a Nintendo Power interview with Miyamoto…
NP: And, of course, I have to ask: have you given any thought to putting a new Kid Icarus game on Wii or DS?
Miyamoto: Wait, please. I’m really surprised how popular that is. But you are the first person to ask at this E3!
Well, telling us to wait is the easiest way to keep us quiet. That way, if/when a new Kid Icarus is announced, we can say that Miyamoto was right! Thanks to Joel for the heads up!
