Earlier this year, Nintendo announced it was joining forces with Smash Bros. designer Masahiro Sakurai's Sora Ltd. to found a new company, Project Sora.

Nintendo is the principal investor, owning up to 72 percent of the company.

The company is hard at work at a game, but it's not another Smash Bros. title. Sakurai added, "I can promise an experience that's different from anything [you've played] up until now."


Project Sora's website gives a straightforward tour of its new office in a brand new building, located in Tokyo's Iidabashi. The purpose of the site is primarily to attract new talent, but it does give a peak behind the curtain: there are game consoles, desks, a video conferencing to communicate with Nintendo, computers running 3D Maya software and a cactus.

About that new game, the site says, "It's a secret! It's totally a secret!!"
