Icarian: Kindred Spirits - Kid Icarus In All But Name?

Those of you that possess a fondness for the NES classic Kid Icarus might be interested to learn that Spanish developer Over The Top Games has announced its first title for the WiiWare service, named Icarian: Kindred Spirits. The game appears to be a 2.5D platforming epic and shares many similarities with Nintendo’s legendary title.

Visually it’s all looking very polished indeed, and the art style is certainly a cut above the usual stuff we’re used to with the vast majority of WiiWare games.
