Kid Icarus: Uprising creator Masahiro Sakurai has revealed that he has absolutely no plans to create a sequel to the impressive Kid Icarus: Uprising. Sakurai says he managed to fit everything he pretty much wanted into Kid Icarus: Uprising and he believes that the novelty of the franchise would soon wear off. He did say that someone else besides him may make another Kid Icarus game, but it’s not going to happen anytime soon.
“If by ‘lasting universe’ you mean to ask if there’s a sequel, the answer is no.” Sakurai went on to explain that the reason is “because we pushed a lot into the game in order to let people have this short yet deep experience, but the novelty of that would likely grow thin in the next game. For now, my thought is that perhaps we’ll see someone else besides me make another Kid Icarus in another 25 years.”
