Project Sora Closed

Project Sora is No More

Kid Icarus Uprising studio dissolved as of June 30.

Kid Icarus Uprising developer Project Sora has been dissolved. Access the company's webpage, and you'll now see a message noting that the studio was closed as of June 30. The website will close on July 31.

Project Sora was formed in 2009 by Masahiro Sakurai, with investment by Nintendo, Sakurai's Sora studio, and other parties. The studio developed Kid Icarus Uprising as its first, and apparently only, game.

Sakurai is serving as director of the 3DS and Wii U entries in the Smash Bros. series, which are being developed by Namco Bandai.

It's sad to see this happen, but don't worry, Super Smash Bros. is still being developed. Possibly why it's being co-developed by Namco Bandai.

What do you think of this occurrence, especially from H-J?

Old news, Sora Ltd are still leading in terms of direction for the new titles

I don't think Sakurai minds tbh but we'll see

Marth is not amused.

I dont think this changes much Sakurai and his team will still be doing most  of the work on smash 4.

Thanks DJ Swangler

Kind of disappointing, but I guess Sakurai was the main part of it anyway, so no real loss.

Well it is kinda strange.
I'm really not that sad about it at all though.
