Here’s Sakurai’s full quote from the end of the episode.

It sure would be nice to play Kid Icarus: Uprising on a home console. I wonder if someone out there will ever port it?

The reason why the game came up is this episode of Masahiro Sakurai on Creating Games is about The Fiend’s Cauldron difficulty mechanic found in the 3DS game. He discusses how instead of a more traditional easy/normal/hard difficulty option, the game lets someone set the intensity. People can pour hearts to raise the intensity and stakes. It’s a risk/reward system that can mean more hearts and weapons if someone takes the chance.

Here’s the full Masahiro Sakurai on Creating Games episode.

This episode of the show also marks a return to game mechanic discussion. For the last installment in November 2022, Sakurai did a fan-requested episode about his pet cat.

Kid Icarus: Uprising is available on the Nintendo 3DS.
