He did....over and over again on his podcast.
I remember he confirmed Kid Icarus over and over again, but I know the past few weeks he had been much more tempered in his predictions of it being at E3.

Whatever, he was right about Halo DS, I'm sure he knows something.
Needs to be repeated.

The game obviously exists. However, whether or not it's shown at E3 has NOTHING to do with Matt.

Probably Factor 5 (or whoever) told him that they're going to have it ready for the show and for some reason or another it just didn't happen.

Put down your pitchforks.

I dont believe he ever claimed it WOULD be at E3 just that it existed and there was a good chance that Factor 5 would show it off.
Perhaps you need to listen to one of the IGN Wii podcasts...ANY WEEK IN THE LAST COUPLE MONTHS will do

Um...He's been dropping pretty heavy hints that he wasn't sure if it would be shown at E3 or not. He doesn't typically get info like that from Nintendo of Japan, which makes me think it's definitely an American dev, and is definitely happening.

I absolutely believe we'll get a Kid Icarus game for Wii.

I second the motion ... Someone please remove the name Cassamassina from GAF. Asterisk that shit out already. I don't care if it is still coming eventually, there's only so much one can take.
that'd probably require censoring all words starting with C and ending with A.

Thank God. An Icarus announcement tomorrow would mean Nintendo would feel it less necessary to show off other, more potentially important IPs for the hardcore. (Zelda, Pikmin, F-Zero, a brand new *gasp* IP, etc.)

Agree completely. I actually feel better about tomorrow now!

To be fair to Matt, you're right.

This makes me trust Kagari more, though.

Not really expecting to see that anyways. Just want to know what Retro, F5 and a bunch of other studios at Nintendo are doing.

yeah I agree. I really want to see Pikmin.

Didn't Julian from Factor 5 say their Wii title was casual and could be played with the Wiimote only? Doesn't sound like a good description of an action/platformer anyway.

No, I think you do. For the last few weeks he's been saying he wasn't sure if it'd show at E3 or not. And I'm not sure if he EVER said that he knew it'd be at E3, just that he knew it was being developed and that we'll see it.

That's...pretty much how I feel actually. Let's hope you're right...

eh, a little disappointing, but i can deal. it's probably due for after the Holiday season at this point, so there's no point in showing it off just yet. can't wait to see what they DO have though...

Shocking. Who could have seen this coming?

You'd think that twenty some years of a precedent and this guy's tendency to talk out his ass would make people a little more skeptical.

It's due for never man. Because it's not being made.

Shocking..but who knows.. :p
He was still clueless about the existence of Twilight Princess..among other things..so in the end is like someone said: Matt is like a normal GAF poster..claiming to have sources and info..only that he gets paid for it. :p

Well, it's down to Pikmin 3 and Zelda then.

If I don't see either one of those, total disappointment unless something really shocking happens.

Ye of little faith, you probably thought his Halo DS crap was bullshit as well.

Trust the man, he has his sources. Man Icarus is coming courtesy of Factor 5. I'd be willing to even place one of those stupid ass ban bets on it.

a year from now he's going to show us footage of a unsolicited concept from some random third-party developer. and this is probably for the best
Matt has been guilty of hyping some stuff too much, but he never suggested that Halo DS was anything more than that. Correct me if I'm wrong.
