This isn't the first time I've seen a listing for Kid Icarus Uprising on Wii U, Amazon France is listing it now...

Would be awesome to have a HD version with improved controls.

I suppose so, but I wish Nintendo would stop making so many god damn ports. You know, ports are what kills handhelds, because if they keep doing this people will not buy the 3DS version because later down the line they know a console version will appear. Keep handheld games exclusive!

Kid Icarus Uprising probably should have been a Wii game, it seems perfect for pointer controls. A WiiU version could be awesome, I'd rather an actual WiiU sequel, though. If only Nintendo could clone Sakurai.

Yeah,the flight sequences are very similar in style to Sin & Punishment on the Wii. The only real problem would be the lack of 3D. Some of the space/underwater/lava sequences are quite wonderful in 3D.

@GunstarRed: I find it to manic when playing in 3D.

This is one game which could do a lot better with being on console. It's a great game with some serious control shortcomings.

@Wong_Fei_Hung: I agree that the controls have a few issues, but they can be lessened with a few tweaks, like slowing down the globe spinning effect on the camera and upping the aim sensitivity, or even having the weapon fire without a button press. By the end of the game the controls became second nature to me. I did have to prop up the console on a cushion or my bag on the bus though. That game has so many other good things going for it that it seems like such a small complaint.

@Hizang: I like manic!
