In IGN’s recent 10 reasons to wait for the Revolution article, IGN makes claims that you will be able to play Kid Icarus only on the Revolution.
Here’s what IGN said (emphasis added):
If you want to control series hero Link in an all new home console adventure, you can only do it with Nintendo Revolution. And the same is true for all of Nintendo’s major games, from Mario to Pikmin, F-Zero and Kid Icarus. You can only find them on one next generation platform and it’s not Xbox 360
Is this simply retro action through backwards compatibility or is something else in store?
