Kid Icarus No More-icus?

In a recent interview, Kid Icarus Uprising creator Masahiro Sakurai mentioned that he has no plans on creating a sequel to the newly-released Kid Icarus game, because he felt that he was able to include everything he wanted to in the game, and because he thinks that people would get bored with the novelty of the game.

This was sad and equally surprising news to me; I figured that this title would maybe be on on its way to becoming one of the next big series' for Nintendo, something with the potential along the lines of The Legend of Zelda franchise. Nintendo seemed to

have heavily promoted this game, with launch events and multiple Gameplay events across the country at Best Buys and Gamestops, where players could engage in head-to-head Icarus battles with one another, and pick up at least one set of the new nifty AR trading cards.

Sakurai somewhat left the door open at least, stating that although he has no plans to develop another Kid Icarus game, maybe someone else will within the next 25 years. When I played Kid Icarus for the first time, I was just about 3 years older than my son is now -- in another 25 years, my son will just about be my age; I guess at least he'll be able to look forward to playing the next iteration of Kid Icarus with his son/daughter and I with my grandchildren! In the meantime, I guess we'll just have to get our Pit fix from Kid Icarus: Uprising, 3D Classics Kid Icarus and vintage Captain N cartoons! :-)
