The folk who worked on the Kid Icarus re-imagining for the Nintendo 3DS have parted ways, publisher Sora announced earlier this week.
Back in 2009, with the help of Nintendo, Masahiro Sakurai put together a subsidiary company within his own Sora Ltd called Project Sora. According to Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata this smaller group was only intended to work on Kid Icarus Uprising as a temporary development house.
The studio shut its doors after a successful launch of the 3DS project.
Given the similarities in name between Project Sora and Sora Ltd it lead some to believe that the company behind Super Smash Bros was no more.
Rest assured that Sakurai's own company, Sora Limited, continues as before; working alongide Nintendo and Namco Bandai on the next franchise brawlers for Wii U and 3DS.
