    Kid Icarus Wii by Factor 5(rumor)

    Nintendo and ex-Nintendo developer Factor 5 might have temporarily broken up, giving the developer just enough time to develop and release its dragon-themed shooter exclusively on Sony's PlayStation 3, but last week, news hit the Internet that the two companies are once again working together. According to reports last week, Factor 5 is developing an exclusive game for Nintendo's latest home console, Wii.

    Kombo has learned from a credible source that said Wii game is in fact a new installment in Nintendo's cherished Kid Icarus franchise. According to sources, Factor 5's Kid Icarus title is being developed ground-up for Wii. It will not use one of the developer's previous GameCube graphics engines. Unfortunately, at this time, no other details have been provided to us for publish.

    It has been over twenty years since the gaming world was first introduced to Kid Icarus, with the original releasing in 1986 for NES. The 2D sidescroller is uniquely its own, but its design enjoys recognizable influences from three of Nintendo's biggest franchises: Mario, Metroid and Zelda.

    Kombo has fired off e-mails to Nintendo and Factor 5 for comment on this rumor. Until we have more to report, please consider this story just that: a rumor.

    I've heard many rumors about a new Kid Icarus game for the Wii for a long time, I'm sure someone just decided that Factor5 would start development on it after anouncing that they are going back to the big N.

    I for one hope that they do something far better than Lair (I'm thinking this because they could easily use a bunch of Lair like flying).

    After seeing how good the Kid Icarus model in smash looks I'm ready to sign up for this one. I mean hell man the model is already made! Then on top of that all they would need is the smash brother engine! What is funny is what if they make this and the flying is better than lair! I say bring on the shadow of the C type visuals and crazy dungeons! I want to see factor 5 make my Wii melt!
