Nintendo releases the sequel to the NES classic in Japan for the first time.

Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters is coming to the Japanese eShop on February 8. The Game Boy sequel to the NES classic was one of the few Nintendo published games to never see release in Japan; instead, it saw release in both North America and Europe in 1991 and 1992 respectively.

As it was never released in the Japan, the Japanese eShop release will feature English text, rather than Japanese. The game will cost 400 yen.


Yea. I'd play this.

From the short time I spent with this game, it seemed a bit less obtuse than the NES game (which I, for one, enjoyed).

The Gameboy Kid Icarus is the much better game because it's actually playable.  It controls better and the stages aren't filled with cheap bullsh!t like the NES game.

As someone who really hates the NES game, I actually enjoyed the Gameboy game.  I'd recommend to others who didn't like the NES game as well to try the Gameboy game because it fixes the problems of the NES original and makes a decent game.

I've never played the NES game, but I love this one. I can't wait for it to be announced in the US.

I own this game on Gameboy.  It was one of the first games I got for the system.  I remember stockpiling Hearts and getting turned into an eggplant but I know I never beat it.
