    Super Smash Bros and Kirby creator Masahiro Sakurai, is creating a new title for Nintendo on his new company Project Sora. Nintendo is the principal investor of the company, owning 72 percent of it.

    About the new game, Iwata says it's not a new Smash Bros and Sakurai adds "i can promise an experience that's different from anything [you've played] up until now."

    He also did Meteos.

    Hopefully it'll be something of worth.

    Didn't he already have a company named "Sora Ltd." or something? They just added "Project" to it and Kotaku calls it a "new company"? [​IMG]

    Oh well. I hope it's Kirby GC/Wii back again in development. Pleeease make it so!

    Won't be Kirby at all

    Anyway HAL has been developing it on and off since the GC announcement, it was listed for Japan TBA 09 earlier this year so I expect it'll come out. I did read somewhere that Nintendo were unsure about it until Kirby Super Star Deluxe sold millions in Japan so its back on.

    Yeah, I was confused when I read that too. Sakurai made "Sora" and they're the group that developed Brawl. Not quite sure why they're saying it's new all of a sudden...

    The important thing is that Kirby GC/Wii is coming out [​IMG] Too bad that Sakurai didn't work on it though [​IMG]
