    “The thoughts of game designer Masahiro Sakurai and Nintendo have become one, and a new project has started. In order to expand what can be offered to the world through games, we will have Nintendo’s full cooperation and make something that Nintendo could not do on its own.” - Iwata

    “A new experiment, both for Mr. Sakurai and for Nintendo. We’ve started a special project. We’re not sure how it will sell or if it will be accepted. Our goal is not just to make a single game. We can promise that you’ll be able to experience something different.” - Sakurai

    “From our perspective, it’s not something that overlaps oddly with something that would come from Nintendo or those close to Nintendo. It’s something that can be made because Nintendo is backing you up, but is also something that Nintendo could not make.” - Iwata

    “If one were simply considering effective use of funding, we’d have went with a plan similar to Touch Generations. But that’s not I wanted. We want to make something that will be wanted even by the more hardcore game players, and something that offers new ideas.” - Iwata

    A part near the end of the interview seems to hint at a 2011 release, but we have no idea what platform it will be on.

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    Yeah, that's hella confusing. Guess we'll just have to wait and see what it is. But now they have me all excited, I mean, something Nintendo couldn't even do...

    You're way off. You should REALLY check company backgrounds first. Sora is the company's name, thus their first 100% independent project is called Project Sora.
    Besides, KH isn't the only series in the world that has the word/name SORA in it. You ignorant fool, you.

    No, it's not a console! It's a game that's being made by the developers of Smash Bros Brawl (some people at Sora were making Melee too, not just Sakurai).
    Besides, you don't make consoles in two years!
    Is common sense really so rare nowadays?

    The moment I clicked this topic away.
    I was thinking "D'OH!".

    So you're probably right [​IMG]
