"...I never played Kid Icarus back on the NES"

or

"Why did Kid Icarus get a new game? I doubt my long awaited game sequel has less fans than Kiid Icarus."

say "Its not about pleasing the old fanbase as much as it is about establishing a new one. So play it."

I've even gone as far to say, just to avoid confusion with current gen players "It's not a sequel. It a new mascot nintendo unveiled back in smash bros. You should try it when it comes out."

Truth, right here.

Honestly, I don't even remember if I so much as heard of Kid Icarus before Brawl or not. However, it seemed interesting, so I learned some more about the series, and after this game was announced, I was like "@#!$)*FJ!OMG!!!" because it looked amazing and Kid Icarus is some kind of awesome. So here I am, a fairly new fan of a 23-year-old, recently-revived series. In fact, it's older than I am. o_o And yet I still love it.

In fact, just a few days back, I broke out the old NES and after a few dozen gray screens, I managed to get my sis's version of Kid Icarus to work. I'm, uh....still on the first fortress level... Anyways, if Pit gets a bit more good backstory in this upcoming game, he has the potential to become my favorite Nintendo character of all time.

Actually, they had a trophy of him in Melee; which was when I first heard of him.

Wanted to play his game ever since.

You can't have gone up over a kilometre. Fifteen hundred metres, tops.
If the cpu's attack each other, the game is attacking itself and thus is emo.

You guys sure know how to make a veteran gamer feel old. I never played the NES version (though I knew about it), but I did play Myths and Monsters for the gameboy.

Wow... I played Kid Icarus waaay back in the 80s when I was a wee little one and I have been waiting for almost 2 decades for a new one. Still one of the best NES games...

The first time I came across the character was on Captain N, but he was called Kid Icarus instead of his real name.

I heard of the game mentioned a few times in a gaming mag, pretty much mentioned in speculations on what Shigsy's reaction to being asked if hes going to make a kid icarus sequal again
