Hudson to Close

Hudson to Close

In a move that is bound to sadden many us included, Konami today announced that it was closing the doors on Bomberman developer Hudson Soft. Hudson Soft have been in business as long as I have been alive having founded in 1973 and it is a real loss that such an innovative developer will be no more.

Konami, who purchased Hudson in 2005, say the studio will become part of Konami Digital Entertainment. No word has been given as to what will happen to Bomberman or Hudson’s other IP’s Bonk, Star Solider and Adventure Island but we suspect that Bomberman at least will continue. There has also been no word as to whether the studio’s staff will be taken on as a whole.

We would like to wish all the staff at Hudson Soft well and thank them for many, many, oh so many years of Bomberman madness.

Here is a little trip down memory lane for you old enough to remember.
