Anyone else think no Kid Icarus this year?

I think we can all agree that this game is one of the most anticipated titles for the 3DS, probably in the top 5. However, Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land were titled and (almost) dated, arguably to put a bit more oomph into Nintendo's big price drop and ultimately put a bit more faith into the console this year. Kid Icarus? "Holiday". Not only that, but consider its delay in Europe to 1st quarter 2012 as well as the mixed reception the game is currently previewing at. Anyone else think the 'finishing touches' the game was announced as at E3 was expanded to fix the controls a bit? It's probably my most anticipated 3DS game, but I'm not sure I have faith in it releasing this year.

I'm pretty sure they said It would be released to 2012.

It's slated for release in 2011 in NA and Japan, but pushed to 2012 in Europe because of localization.

You do realize that they've been working on it for a long time under the project name sora, and the team working on it never has had one of their projects flat out canceled? Oh and let's not forget that they've shown it at 2 e3's now, and games like xenoblade weren't shown at e3 because "there were no plans to sell it in the us." I realize that your comment was probably sarcasm, but if it wasn't then you're making yourself look like an idiot

It's still 2011 as of the press report a few days ago announcing the price drop (it appeared in it). Both Japan and the US are slated to get it by the holidays 2011. Europe is delayed until early 2012, we've known this for a few weeks now.
