I know there's a few Kid Icarus fans on the forum so this will probably excite you to learn that the title is now available on the Japanese Virtual Console (along with Zelda II: The Adventure of Link) for 500 points a piece.
Apparently it is the Famicon Disc version of KI, which has a save feature rather than the password system in the NES version. It's not known which version of the system the US/Europe will have.
Anyway here's a video of the VC footage:
Very nice. Big fan.
"Kids, let me tell you about another so-called "wicked" guy. He had long hair and some wild ideas, and he didn't always do what other people thought was right. And that man's name was... I forget.
