Will there ever be a Kid Icarus Uprising sequel?
I think so. Kid Icarus: Uprising sold about 1 million+ units and is slowly becoming a franchise Nintendo puts alongside Mario, Zelda, etc. The series has a ton of potential.
And not to mention Palutena is in Smash 4 which will boost the series popularity even more.
Was Pit born, or made? Did Palutena make him or just find him? Why is he the single most powerful being in the pantheon? How does Palutena control him if he's obviously vastly more powerful than she is?
>Was Pit born, or made?
>Did Palutena make him or just find him?
Never explained, he couldn't fly so that why he saved her.
>Why is he the single most powerful being in the pantheon?
Because he's just determined, I guess?
>How does Palutena control him if he's obviously vastly more powerful than she is?
Palutena is more powerful than him. And Pit is essentially a child who is a big sap for Palutena. He does what she says, even if it's the stupidest thing.
No one knows
All we know is Sakurai doesn't want to make it.
Playable Hades in Smash when?
That's because it was a really early NES game. If they made it now, it'd be way more exciting.
Plus the game was basically a more linear Metroid. They could just make it a Metroid style level design easily
Is Pit the biggest beta in video game history?
>Even told by his leader that he should make more friends
>Doesn't know how to talk to girls when they flirt with him
>Blindly follows Palutena because he's a beta
>Palutena is more powerful than him
There is only evidence to the contrary. He killed gods, goddesses, demons, alien hive minds, and a space kraken among other things. Not to mention he slapped Palutena's shit around even with the chaos beast. All evidence points to Pit being the strongest there is.
>Not to mention he slapped Palutena's shit around even with the chaos beast.
she was in a weakened state and even then you shouldn't have attacked her or else you lose the game (really, you do)
and also if pit decides to go against Palutena means she'll squeeze his brains out or some shit
No he didn't. I mean to fly yea that was Palutena but the actual fighting was all him, every bit of it. The only other thing Palutena did was rails and the occasional hot spring.
Nope KIU was a commercial failure
It barely sold 1 million units
For being a Sakurai game on a system with 40 million sales with all that can service from brawl and being an established IP and having tons of marketing
It was a huge financial flop that was expected to do far far better. Kid Icarus a shit and will be locked away for another 30 years because of how worthless his sales numbers are.
it broke one million units, and it came out in 2012, 3DS wasn't that big at the time. It's a title that will sell big numbers over a large amount of time. Hell, I bet a ton of people bought Uprising after Palutena's reveal. I know I did.
How much do 3DS games need to make to break even? I remember IS said that they needed 200k for Fire Emblem to break even. Can't imagine it would be much more for Kid Icarus.
>1,114,000 Units sold worldwide.
>3ds Games on average need 200,000-400.000 to break even
why is palutena the best nintendo gril
>playing Uprising for the first time
>slow down since it looks like the game was about to finish and I wanted to prolong it
That was one of my favorite parts in any game ever
It's just one of those games that you expect something will happen when it goes in a different way. I loved it.
You think any stupid reviewers actually got fooled by the fake out?
I remembered being so sad that such an amazing game was so short.
Then that fucking claw appeared.
That slut isn't even the best Kid Icarus girl.
google Kid Icarus medusa and the first suggestion is doujin.
>mfw I lost my copy of Kid Icarus...
I was visiting my dad in mississippi and picked up a copy over there. When I got back it wasn't in the case...
Oh well. At least I still have the stand...
Uprising had so many awesome scenerios in it, you could really tell they wanted the game to feel like a real journey.
>Well, I beat Medusa, that was pretty fun if for a- holy crap who is that?
>Alright time to beat up more underworld goons wait whats that giant thing heading toward the ground oh my god hippie loli goddess
>It's pretty tough fighting the Forces of Nature wait what these guys aren't underworld or Forces of Nature oh my god aliens holy crap we're all teaming up for a space battle this is so cool
>Wait why am I a ring now, now I'm a loli, now I'm a dog, holy shit now I'm fucking Guts
>Oh snap I gotta fight Palutena oh neat the menu changed too
>Is this some kind of otherwordly horror monster this is awesome
>Now I'm Dark Pit awesome I can fly forever I wanna fuck Pandora now
>Time to kill Hades oh god why is everything happening
>Holy shit now I'm a fucking Mech
the best part about uprising's narative (and i think games should copy) is that there's no big cut scene for most of the game. Every start of a chapter throws you right into it, and you AND Pit don't know what you're doing today, but they explain it while you play
>Continues from Palutena's trailer
>Dark Pit starts to fight Palutena and Pit
>DARK PIT crashes the party!
>Trailer ends to credits
>"Not without me!"
>Hades hand claws through the screen like in Uprising
>"How can you have a party without your old friend Hades?"
>HADES joins the battle!
Dark Pit is a red herring for Hades, count on it
>Third most prominent character in Uprising
>Not shown as trophy, stage boss, or stage hazard
>Never once mentioned anywhere, much like all characters before their reveal
It's inevitable at this point. It will be Hades, Medusa, or both. My money is on Hades though, because then he can use Medusa as a final smash, which would explain her absence as well.
Pit isn't even a hundredth as powerful as Hades.
He needed the combined help of FOUR of the most powerful gods in the game universe to beat him, and his own contribution to the fight was rather minuscule. He just held down the shoot button on the Great Sacred Treasure.
And you know what happened when he tried to fight him with his own power earlier.
Best game on the 3DS
Sakurai probably won't even be alive for the next one (assuming the whole KI4 in 25 more years thing wasn't a joke, which it probably is)
I hope that eventually we get Kid Icarus on Wii U
I also hope the next one finally breaks the pattern of being every other franchise.
>KI was based on Metroid's engine
>KI:OMAM was Metroid 2
>KI:U was at one point Star Fox
I just want Kid Icarus to have a god damn identity, is that too much to ask?
It would be cool if some of the ground sections are played in a 2D perspective, like the first game
it got it's identity in uprising. Star Fox didn't work out well for Uprising's mechanics. I'd say it's identity came alot from the writing in the game, which threw everyone off guard.
The last sales data for Kid Icarus is from 2012 and it had already crossed the million at that point.
That was when the 3DS was struggling. If you think it's not past 2 million or more by now you're delusional.
Palutena is my favorite Nintendo girl but it's really mostly because of her interactions with Pit, they really make a great pair.
I'm talking real early in development. The game plays like Assault if you could aim your shots int he air segments without moving the ship.
The major aspects of the plot are also really, really Star Foxy
>Aparoids - Aurum
>Both main villains reek of andross when you think about their fights
>Pyrrhon is essentially Pigma with really
>the amount of time spent in space
If I took more time I could probably map out every single analogy to Star Fox you could make of KI:U
>End of Uprising
>Dark Pit and Pit are Loyal to Palutena
>Hades and Medusa dead
>Palutena mentions strengthening his army.
In the game's canon, he's right.
Does it sound fedoracore? You bet your ass. Is he wrong? Not quite.
The fact that he's the only one that realizes this in the story says something about his character. I'd say >>253382887 is right in saying Pittoo is Smarter than a lot of the cast.
Someone suggested an F-Zero open world game where Captain Falcon does a lot of racing, but actually lives up to the whole bounty hunter title. Just think about it. Riding the Falcon Flier to multiple planets, competing in races, and collecting the bounty of criminals. You can you the bounty and race prizes to upgrade your abilities, F-Zero racer, or Falcon Cave.
F-Zero U when?
I don't see why people think Dark Pit is "smart" for figuring out the gods are bad, you guys are letting the writing influence you too much. Everyone in the game knows the gods are bad. Magnus say this like 10 chapters earlier than Dark Pit. Pit and Palutena are opposing the other gods from the start, and sure the war made victims but if they didn't oppose them then millions more humans would've died. Meanwhile, right after Viridi drops a nuclear bomb on humans, Dark Pit agrees to work for her.
It's not released finished yet, but for you /ss/ fans, some guy on /h/ is working on a version of PPPPU with more characters, including Palutena with Pit as the male
Seems like everybody wants to tickle a Viridi. No surprise there.
One million is not a flop. Squeenix might piss and moan about how Tom Braider or Hitman: Subtitle didn't sell six million in the first month, but that's them being dumb and spending more than they have any right to expect to recoup. If Nintendo only made $10 a cartridge, they made $10 million, that's enough to fund a game like Bayonetta or the Wonderful 101, it sure as shit covers Kid Icarus' budget.
Maybe with a different weapon? There's definitely plenty of options for making him distinct just by giving him different kit. Ogre Club, Gemini Orbitars, Viridi Palm/Claws. Maybe he can use the lightning chariot as a Super Sonic-style Final Smash.
I'm pretty sure if Dark Pit was in Smash 4 he'd use:
He'd be a slower version of Pit but with different attacks and weight.
>Green = In use by Pit
>Red = Item
>Black = In use by Dark Pit
I want to wrestle with Pit and "accidently" rub my breasts on his back/chest/face and act like we're just playing and nothing's happening while he's flustered about it
Sakurai hates sequels
That's the reason why he stopped working on Kirby
Pit gets embarassed when Palutena teases him about naughty thoughts or taking a bath, I think it's pretty cute. I like scenarios where the boy is enjoying it but is too embarassed to say he is enjoying it/pointing it out, while the girl is doing something on purpose but pretend she's not doing anything, like an older girl resting her breasts against a boy's shoulder while leans over him to look at his homework or something.
4chan is the only place I can talk about this, female communities can be really hateful to shota fans
Smash games are not sequels.
Uprising was basically a new game and nothing like the original. He showed no interest in an Uprising sequel.
And that's exactly the reason why he stopped working on Kirby. Because Nintendo kept telling him to keep making them.
>Uprising was basically a new game and nothing like the original. He showed no interest in an Uprising sequel.
It constantly made references to and directly follows the original. It's a fucking sequel.
4chan is the only place I can talk about this, female communities can be really hateful to shota fans
There's people like this?
Yeah I noticed it was kinda off. It's still good, yes.
why the fuck is this game up to $70 on amazon
at this rate i'll never be able to actually play Uprising
M-maybe I could write a fic about it this weekend
Popular in a cute/adorable away, but sexually not much. It's frowned upon more than guys hating on loli fans from my experience, since they hate pedophilia more.
For the record I have no interest in real children.
Otome forums and other more "normal" weeaboo sites. I don't understand how to use tumblr.
In Otome games, the "shota" characters tend to be young-looking 16 years old teenagers, not actual shotas. It's not that popular.
This has nothing to do with Kid Icarus anymore!
No problem just making sure we're all on the same page in this thread.
And there's a 100% chance I won't meet them anyways, so it doesn't matter.
I can believe whoever I want is telling the truth on an anonymous image board.
>In Otome games, the "shota" characters tend to be young-looking 16 years old teenagers, not actual shotas.
This shit is so annoying, I run into this all the time at sadpanda with "shota" or "loli" tags highschoolers. It's bullshit.
For the record I have no interest in real children.
Yep, totally get that. I guess it's still kinda wrong but when it comes to cute fictional characters I just can't help but like it a little. Eh, I was never a saint anyways.
And yes, I fully endorse a fic. May god guide your pen hand.
who here getting Pit amiibo day one nigga
Kirby day one, Rosalina once it's released.
I'll write something when I have more freetime this weekend and post it in a KI or Smash thread when I see one.
Out of the ones pictured I only want Pit. I think Zelda's face looks off compared to the art, but if they fix it I'll get her too. Assuming they make some for every characters I also want Palutena, Ike and Robin. I wonder if Robin's will have both the male and female together. Villager and WFT have gender-swapped alts but they still only show one gender for the official art, while Robin's official art has both gender.
michiko sakurai a qt
but not as qt as her husband
they got married sometime between brawl and uprising
I hope if they make a sequel that it has more dark pit and less Palutena.
Maybe she and the other gods disappear and Dark pit and Pit team up to find them
Dark pit is flying sections, Pit is 2D platforming sections.
It would be the best.
Also co-op. I don't really like competitive multiplayer.
Sorry, bro, I'm just saying it would be cool.
It's to make dark pit feel more comfortable with his own nudity.
Well, Hades Power has to go somewhere. It's not like a being that powerful can just vanish.
I still have the link bookmarked
because I wrote it.
I also have the one where Pit gets fucked by
cuntboyDark Pit in a hot spring:
Fostering friendship is more important than avoiding having to do laundry for one day.
It's a work in progress.
He's just never had anyone he can relate to before. Palutena isolates him from others. She's mean like that.
>got the original Metroid Prime Trilogy when it was $50 new
>its going for $200+ now
>mfw I'll never sell it anyways
>find Prime 1 cheap at Gamestop
>cashier guy suggests I get one of their copies of Metroid Prime Trilogy instead. It's maybe like ten bucks more.
>I spill my spaghetti and insist on Prime 1.
Sakurai's not keen on rushing out sequels. Nintendo usually stick to one or two games per console generation, anyway.
That said, I would suck a million dicks if Nintendo got Platinum to do Kid Icarus: Angel May Smile. And they wouldn't even have to be feminine ones.
>I'M NOT ONE OF THOSE SKYWORLD PANSIES
>DON'T FUCK WITH THIS GOD
>we should make it a metroid clone again
No, I'd rather have something interesting. A rail-shooter/TPS is better. Also the rail-shooting is great, Kid Icarus and rail-shooter does go great together as proven by Uprising.
What i would love in a KI sequel would be multiple stories where you can pick a character, and have their god work as your otakon.
>Dark Pit+ Medusa (she was redeemed in the end after all.)
>new evil character + Hades
>Magnus + new god
Nagatoro is love.
I never found it uncomfortable that way. I mean you just use one hand to shoot and move and the other hand to aim, the only problem is that you don't have another hand to keep the 3DS balanced. So I used my leg. Also I am not an Octopus I swear.
>implying Sakurai isn't immortal
