Kid Icarus is an NES Game created by the same team responsible for Metroid and even has a metroid enemy included. Due to being seen as second to Metroid, the game didn't sell as well as hoped, although reviews that have played it, always have given it good feedback. It even managed to come 84th in IGN's 2003 Top 100 Games of all Time.
Ever since it's release in 1986, the hero Pit didn't have appear again until 2008, where he played a main roll in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
The Game is set in a Mythological Greek world and you start in Hades realm, the Underworld.
