Sora Ltd. is a Japanese video game development company that was founded by Masahiro Sakurai, a former employee of HAL Laboratory, in September 2005. Sora was created as an independent company, through which other companies would hire Sakurai to develop games. It is one of the smallest companies of all time, having only two employees, including Sakurai himself.

Satoru Iwata hired Sora to be part of a special team put together specifically to develop Super Smash Bros. Brawl, with Sakurai as the team's head. Sora was later hired again to develop Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, alongside Bandai Namco Games, after completing Kid Icarus: Uprising.

As of June 30, 2012, Project Sora has disbanded, and as of July 31, 2012, the company's website is no longer accessible.
