Masahiro Sakurai, the creator behind Kirby and Super Smash Bros recently took the opportunity to answer some fan based questions on IGN.
One of the questions that Sakurai was asked was whether or not Kid Icarus: Uprising for the Nintendo 3DS will feature an online multiplayer mode to compliment the confirmed local play. Sakurai wouldn’t give a direct answer, but did state that it’s something the team may consider adding. Would you like to see a online multiplayer mode for Kid Icarus: Uprising?
“Will the multiplayer mode be online as well as local?”
We’re still in the middle of looking at the options for the wireless multiplayer mode, and I would say it’s not totally out of the realm of possibility that we might end up not being able to implement the Wi-Fi online mode, but we’re moving forward in development with the understanding and intention of making that a feature”.
