Kid Icarus: Uprising is the first Kid Icarus game since its last outing on the NES back in 1986/87 for the Nintendo 3DS system. Nintendo has released official screenshots of the game, one of which shows the cameo of Metroids! The original Kid Icarus game was created by the father of Metroid, Gunpei Yokoi and featured enemies known as “Komayto” which resembled Metroids.
