The problem isn't just that Kid Icarus is hard. It's hard because the controls are terrible and if you miss a single jump (even to an area that was safe before you jumped) you die.

Donkey Kong

DK's levels don't take 10 minutes each to complete, though.

IMO Nintendo does NOT want to put Kid Icurus out there, as a "Hey, check out this series game". Kid Icurus is one of the most obtuse and outrageously difficult games Nintendo ever published. It entertained me as a 10 year old kid, but even my gaming sensibilities in 2011 I can no longer stand playing something like that. It hasn't aged well like, say, one of the Mario games.

At Skawo93-

Only if you kept dying, having to restart, and died some more because you didn't ever play it until DK64 to beat the game

Donkey Kong

Donkey Kong is way more polished than Kid Icarus. There's a reason one was a massive smash hit and the other faded into obscurity almost instantly.

The upgrades system is fairly complicated, and most of the mechanics regarding them go unexplained. Plus, the items in the game have no explanation whatsoever.


Why is an explanation needed?
Does mario ever explain why a mushroom makes you grow?
Or a flower let you shoot fire?
Or a feather turns you into a Tanooki?
Yoshi's inifinite stomach capacity?

Nope, because in the nes days, upgrades were there for discovery.
Finding a unique item that allows long range arrows on your own is much funner than knowing in advance what everything is, and just wading through till you find the one you want.

Kid Icarus focuses on exploration and adventure, the items are to be discovered to keep the wonder going.
