Project Sora was a video game development studio based in Iidabashi, Tokyo, founded in 2009 by Satoru Iwata and Masahiro Sakurai. Nintendo held a 72% majority stake of the company, with Sora Ltd. and other companies forming the other 28% stake. The studio was formed for the sole purpose of developing Kid Icarus: Uprising, initially made up mostly of recruits hired by Nintendo for development of Sakurai's previous title, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, while new recruitment continued throughout development.

Project Sora was closed on June 30, 2012, following the game's release in March that year.
