Nintendo announced this morning that Kid Icarus: Uprising's flight to retail has been delayed until 2012. According to the publisher's note, the development team for the 3DS action game determined it needed more time to complete the game. Is it enough time to incorporate the functions of that elegant analog add-on?

Nintendo also announced it is developing 3D Kid Icarus cartoons with "critically acclaimed" Japanese anime studios. These animations will be available for free on the Nintendo Video service to 3DS owners worldwide.
