Several readers have pointed out that Amazon France is now listing Kid Icarus: Uprising for the Wii U. The game is available to pre-order for seventy euros and even has an image to accompany the pre-order. Nintendo hasn’t made any mention that it’s bringing the Nintendo 3DS game to Wii U, so this could simply be a mistake on Amazon’s part. Would you want Kid Icarus: Uprising on Wii U?

Thanks to those that sent this in.


  1. it would actually work on the wii! the dual control sticks could replace the circle pad or you could use the touchscreen like on the 3ds version. i would love an hd remake on wii u!


      • The Wii U has two more shoulder buttons, so the left one could be used to instantly turn the camera 90 degrees left and vice versa. Clicking both at the same time could make the camera turn 180 degrees. Also, there are four face buttons you could use for other stuff, in the 3ds you couldn’t use them since the right hand had to be used on the touch screen. So with those buttons you could assign powers to a certain button and seperate shooting and melee attacks. Uprising would work BETTER on the Wii U.


  2. This is one game where I need to have the 3D on max all the time. I find it harder to play without it, so even if this is real I think I’ll give it a miss.


        • Same here , I NEVER have the 3D turned off , unless I’m out of the house with my 3DS and need to reserve power. 3D makes pretty much everything look better on 3DS apart from a few launch window 3DS games which used 3D pathetically…

          Tales of the abyss on 3DS (amazing game) the 3D effect Is crap on it compared to Ocarina or Mario 3D land.


        • lol I have great eyesight 20/20(I have no idea if that makes a diference or not), but I can’t play A SINGLE game with 3D on. It is too annoying, I honestly thought that no one used the 3D effect because it is just awful for me. Thought it was the same for everyone :P Turned it off for Zelda OoT, Mario Tennis, Mario Kart 7, Kid Icarus and Fire Emblem..


          • I also have 20/20 eyesight, but always play on 3D at home, but not when our to preserve the battery life. On some games, I can only have the 3D slider on half though, because after playing 6 hours of Mario Kart in 3D, real life looks flat and I don’t like it.


  3. I already have it on 3DS, and I would rather have a sequel, but as long as there are some more main story levels it would be a must buy. I would still consider it even as a direct port.


    • Maybe the could expand on the multiplayer, make bigger match sizes and stuff like that, if they do then make it realky cheap and allow me to transfer over my weapons.


    • You know the had Res5 full game running on the 3DS right? So are you saying the PS3 and xbox360 have psone graphics? Shake my head at the downfall of trolldom.


      • Don’t be a fucking retard bro. Yeah , I would be happy if they just ported the 3DS game to Wiiu and took the 3D off ? NO IDIOT. If they expect me to rebuy this game which I already own on 3DS , then they would have to add new lighting , textures , resolution , you name it , it would have to be there for me to be interested.

        Graphics in this case are the key thing. If you want me to rebuy a 3DS game on Wiiu , only way I’m gunna be interested is if you take advantage of the Wiiu’s HD capability after ditching 3DS’s 3D capability.

        And when did anyone say Graphics don’t matter idiot ? of course graphics matter. Wiiu will have amazing looking HD games on it. Just because PC , PS4 , 720 will be more powerfull doesn’t mean the Wiiu’s graphics are just not important to Nintendo fans.

        I’m obsessed with Nintendo’s art styles and graphics within the limitations of their own hardware. Mario galaxy 1 and 2 look absoloutly stunning on the Wii for example.


      • I mean… if Resident Evil: Revelations was coming out to consoles with 3DS level in graphics, would you buy it? I wouldn’t. Just because Nintendo fans argue that graphics don’t make the game, doesn’t mean they wouldn’t want a nice looking game. I’m pretty sure the graphics and gameplay argument is meant towards the new consoles more and how Nintendo went their own way, instead of making the Wii U a graphical powerhouse, not towards games on the Wii U looking the best they can.


  4. Yes I would love to see Kid Icarus on Wii U. It belongs on that console! That would definitly fix the control issues and online matches would probably improve in quality as well. I would also love to see the game in beautiful HD.


  5. I would buy it! Kid Icarus Uprising is my fav 3DS game by far. The graphics were so impressive and there wasn’t any slow-down or lag when playing through the levels. I would love to see them update the visuals for the Wii U version of the game. Everything else about the game was fantastic too like the gameplay and even the controls (even if you had to get used to them after a while)


  6. This would be a great move! As much as I’m fine with the controls, the Wii U Gamepad seems incredibly ideal for this for a few reasons:
    – It’s larger, giving the player more to hold and less chance of hand-cramping
    – The player is more likely to have the Gamepad on a stand, being at home, than a 3DS. If you’ve got the strap, though, I guess you’re set.
    – The big friggin screen!


  7. Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!! I hope that Nintendo this is clear enough!


  8. So does Nintendo really one of us will run you fools! enough for us all, let us give a new game or let him withdraw from the production of hardware!!!!!!!!!


    • Hey little gamer long time no see. Butt hurt over nintendo making better games than Sony should not make you want to make them leave. Microsoft should leave; making a powerhouse of a console just so we can play kinectimals 2.


  9. The way I see it, if Sakurai really doesn’t wanna make a sequel, this is the next best thing. Perhaps if people play a better version of the game, better controls, HD, hopefully more chapters(Hopefully 25 more to add up to 50), then that’ll raise chances for a sequel. Since the 3DS game was a bit of a hand cramp magnet.


    • Moron you have been gone so long, you don’t even know that in the Past week the PS4 was revealed.

      Also that nintendo stock has gone up in the major markets of the US, Japan and even Asia. Now the fact that investors know the Wii U can run all game engines, and also it’s getting of ports from the PS4 and xbox720 help their investment potforlios.

      March has games games games! That shall be releasing on the Wii U. One that will ignite the Wii U is Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. Need for speed is coming and Lego undercover.


    • The Wii U is about to :

      R.I.P = Rip Its Opponents

      1) Nintendo first party showings alone will be beautiful and worth more in gaming and re-playability than any games on other systems. These are but the ones that have been announced some already complete

      a) Pikmin 3
      b) Mario Kart Wii
      c) Super Mario Bros U ( 9.5 out of 10 )
      d) Yoshi on the Wii U
      e) Zelda being made
      f) 3D Mario on the Wii U

      whatever other projects Nintendo has.

      2) Nintendo second party exclusives

      a) Monolith’s X ( Xenoblade 2 or Xenogears 2 )
      b) Mistwalkers Wii U exclusive

      3) Nintendo’s cross developer exclusives
      a) Platinum games Bayonetta 2
      b) Fire emblem X Shingen

      4) Multiplats
      a) Watch dogs
      b) Need for speed most wanted ( PC edition)
      c) Spiderman ultimate edition
      d) Project cars
      e) RES revelations
      f) FIFA14

      now why would you buy any other system?


  10. The difference between nintendo and the rest of the pack is this :

    1) Nintendo has the best development studio in the world, NINTENDO EAD and no one can disclaim this.
    2) Capcom is in essence the second best development studio on the planet behind nintendo EAD.
    3) They can make kid Icarus HD with added features for the Wii U, sell it for $19.99 and this establish another key franchise for future nintendo systems.
    4) Sony being a Japanese company needs a Stewart and wise old general like nintendo to make it in the gaming world. Nintendo’s innovations help Sony have some one they can emulate from.
    5) nintendo makes Microsoft at the least try to open up new studios so as they too can have more than only two real first party exclusives alã gears and halo.


  11. If u add a cecond campaign (10-20 chapters or so) that happens after the story of the original KI U, then why not? Plus a wii remote and nunchuck is a perfect controller for this. Gamepad, classic, and pro controllers would also work out fine. being able to swap weapons on the go with the gamepad and split screen multiplayer along with a mic. For online would be. Worth 60 bucks.


  12. It’s not new, is listing this game since may 2012.

    “Nintendo hasn’t made any mention that it’s bringing the Nintendo 3DS game to Wii U, so this could simply be a mistake on Amazon’s part.”
    Oh no, it’s false. Remember, at E3 2011, Nintendo has announced that Kid Icarus Uprising will be on Wii U too. Many website have actually a page for this game.

    Sorry for my bad english, I’m french.
    Cordially, a redactor of a nintendo’s news french website.


  13. OMG I STARTED A WII U VERSION OF THIS ON MIIVERSE ND HAVE OVER 400 LIKES !!!!! A WHILE BACK… if this comes true i would be so excited the wii u needs that killer online multiplayer experiance!!! and this game would be it the 3ds version was gorgeous and the multiplayer online was sooooo intence and epic imagine it on the Wii U with 2 sticks and the touch screen WOW hope this is true!!


  14. As excited as I would be for the likes of a new Metroid, Star Fox, Donkey Kong or Kirby, I would be happier to hear of announcements for simultaneously released ports that are coming out this year. Nintendo did promise us comparable 3rd party support this generation on the Wii U and would prefer to see a little more headway on that.

    In regards to the other Nintendo franchises, how about an announcement for a 3D Kirby or Donkey Kong? Yes, I realize they naturally fall into their traditional platformer role, but look at how Mario and Metroid flourished with a major change.

    Although they’re “just another Mario game”, the reason why we keep coming back for more of the same is because they’re good games. Platformers are fun, but they shouldn’t dominate the library.

    New ways to keep gameplay fresh while utilizing the new hardware is still very important. I wholeheartedly agree that graphics aren’t everything, but we need new ways to play (if we’re to continue with old favorites), new IPs or ports while fully utilizing the capabilities of the system.


  15. If Capcom can do it with Resident Evil: Revelations… why not Project Sora do it with Kid Icarus: Uprising for the U? They should take advantage of the HD graphics and improve everything from the original 3D counterpart.


    • It was the French site that first found out about Project Cafe (The Codename for the Wii U) first.
      I believe it was also the French Amazon site was the first one to tell us about Call of Duty Black Ops 2.


  16. Hides under a bridge,

    Where he can t be seen.

    Huddled under a bankside,

    Staring into a stream.

    Wanna cross this bridge,

    Well better be aware.

    There is a brown hairy troll,

    Gonna give you a scare.

    Yea, I’m the troll,

    This is my bridge,

    Go turn around,

    Back through the ridge.

    Yea, I ‘m the troll,

    Don t you even dare,

    Yea, I’m the troll,

    Gonna get you there,

    Monster from beneath.

    Bastard of grief,

    Such a sad sigh,

    Does he wanna die?

    In a mind of fear,

    The troll lives in my mind.

    I must forget this fear of regret.

    The Troll

    The Troll

    The Troll

    The Troll will charge a toll,

    That is, your life,

    So this is it,

    You better think Twice,

    Don’t cross the bridge,

    Where he lives.

    But, its too late

    Cause here he is,


  17. This would be a great buy for folks who missed the 3DS version or simply do not own a 3DS. I loved this game and it was a blast to play. Seeing it in HD would be a real treat, though I would like to see Nintendo give folks who registered their 3DS copies with Club Nintendo some kind of discount on a Wii U remix. Even with the little stand that came with the game it can be a bit tricky to play so I’d love to be able to give it a try with the Wii U Gamepad or a Pro controller.


  18. This was the best original game we have had since Twilight Princess, and it has it’s own unique style. I would LOVE it if there was a WiiU version.


  19. Are you sure about that since I have never heard that? I think you may be confused this with the new Smash Bros game which was announced for both systems at the 2011 E3.


  20. You know, if they announced this to be released alongside Wind Waker this fall, I’d probably buy it. When I had a 3DS, the game was really awesome, but seeing it in HD would be lovely. Nintendo could also put in some bonus content, such as some new weapons, maybe a new chapter or 2, and the Anime specials that were made of the game.


  21. Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning tto start my own blog in the near future but I’m
    having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I askk is because your layout seerms different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
