Kid Icarus 3DS Team Disbands, Sora Ltd Still Active on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

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.
