Nintendo Closes Project Sora

Project Sora - the studio behind Kid Icarus: Uprising - has been closed, according to the studio's homepage, on which you'll find the following message:

This company was dissolved on June 30th 2012.
We thank you truly for your patronage.
This home page will close on July 31st 2012.

Project Sora

Kotaku translated an interview with Iwata from last year that appeared on the studio's site, suggesting that once work had finished on Kid Icarus: Uprising, the studio would start development on Smash Bros.

Presumably, Sakurai will still be heading up the project under his Sora Ltd. freelancing agency, but most of the development duties will have passed to Namco Bandai.
