why isn't nintendo's hype meter for LMDM as high as it was for Kid Icarus?

Everyone knows who Luigi is.

Only a few knew who Pit was.

They aren't lowering the hype. They have it right where they want it, because it's a Mario game.

Paper Mario Sticker Star sold more than Kid Icarus despite little hype and mostly negative reception. Mario games sell no matter what. Why break your marketing budget when it'll do very good anyway?

Kid Icarus was going through a 25 year revival.

Luigi can simply ride on Mario's coattails.

Why do people always act like Of Myths & Monsters never existed?

For those players who don't speak Australian, we have provided an English translation of the previous scene. Do you want to replay the scene?

Because it isn't canon.

Pit dies at the end of it.

C'mon Dude... I OWNED the Game on my Original Gameboy(Which, I'm sure if I looked through my parents stuff I could find the Gameboy and the game somewhere in all the junk they have) and even I have to admit: No one knew what the game was. No one even knew it existed.

So Kid Icarus might as well have been a full 25 year revival.
