Project Sora, the studio behind 3DS title Kid Icarus Uprising, has been closed, reports the studio's website (via Andriasang).

The studio was formed in 2009 by Masahiro Sakurai, with the help of investment by Nintendo, Sakurai's Sora studio, and other parties.

It looks like Kid Icarus Uprising will be the one and only title to emerge from the Japanese studio.

Sakurai has since moved on to work as director on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS.

Project Sora was just a small subsidiary studio of the it's parent company (Sora Ltd), which is still in business and is still an exclusive second party developer for Nintendo. I assume that since everyone in Project Sora (Sakurai included) will have been moved to work on the Smash bros Wii U with Namco, that there is no actual need for the studio itself at the present.
