Kid Icarus Uprising Won't Make It to Nintendo 3DS This Year

Originally planned as a launch title for the Nintendo 3DS, Kid Icarus Uprising, a sequel two decades in the making... err, waiting will have to wait a little longer.

Kid Icarus Uprising is now a 2012 title, Nintendo revealed at its 3DS Conference in Tokyo today, pegging Pit's next adventure for the first quarter in Japan. Developed by Project Sora and led by Masahiro Sakurai, Uprising is said to be delayed to give the game a bit more polish.

In better news, Nintendo announced 3D animated shorts produced by studios Production I.G., Studio 4C and Shaft. They'll be available worldwide.

Nintendo's 2012 line-up also includes Luigi's Mansion 2, Mario Tennis, Animal Crossing, Fire Emblem and Paper Mario.
