Kid Icarus (series)
The Kid Icarus series is a franchise of action games created by Nintendo. The first game in the series was Kid Icarus, originally released in Japan in 1986, and in North America and Europe in 1987. Kid Icarus was released on the Nintendo Entertainment System. The second game in the series, a sequel to Kid Icarus, was Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters. Of Myths and Monsters was released on the Game Boy in North America in 1991, and in Europe in 1992. Of Myths and Monsters never saw a Japanese release. For sixteen years, Pit, the main protagonist of the series, never had a playable role in a game. This changed with the third installment of the Super Smash Bros. series, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, where Pit starred as a playable character, and Skyworld appeared as a stage. Four years later, Kid Icarus: Uprising was released, marking the third installment in the Kid Icarus series. Kid Icarus: Uprising was the first new Kid Icarus game to be released in twenty years.
Kid Icarus and Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters also had many rereleases. Kid Icarus was rereleased on the Wii's Virtual Console in 2007, and was rereleased on the Nintendo 3DS as 3D Classics: Kid Icarus in early 2012. Of Myths and Monsters was also rereleased on the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console in Japan and Europe in 2012.
