Yep. And Bomberman, Bonk, Military Madness, Star Soldier/Soldier Blade/Final Soldier/related, et al. You might also know them for developing Mario Party games.

Re: Hudson closes down for good on March 1, 2012

But those games will probably just be picked up by someone else right? Also I heard there's another MP game incoming, does this mean it's cancelled?

I think MP is the only one of those that has seen a release in years, and there's no way that N is gonna just let Mario Party go down with them.

Re: Hudson closes down for good on March 1, 2012

Mario Party 9 is being developed by Nintendo this time, so Hudson's shutdown shouldn't have any effect on that game.

The google translate page is messy, but here it is.

Google Translate

Better one, by me:

"On March 1, Konami Digital Entertainment (KDE) will merge with Hudson, and the Hudson name will be eliminated, Hudson revealed on January 17 in a report sent to the Kanto Local Finance Bureau.

KDE is a subsidary of parent company Konami Hudson, formed in April 2005. Hudson has created content for mobile phones. Reason for the merger is stated as "to create business opportunities for SNS (?), and to concentrate resources on the core business of the digital entertainment group within KDE.

Hudson formed in 1973, starting out as dealers for amateur radio equipment in Sapporo. Later they started making game software for PC, and then for the Nintendo Family Computer, becoming known for titles "Bungeling Bay" and "Family BASIC" (which was jointly developed with Nintendo)."

The licenses to all Hudson properties will be retained by Konami. However, I doubt that Konami has any interest in keeping these series alive. So they will either sell them to someone else, or just do nothing with them.

I really feel for the Hudson employees, first bought out just to make mobile and social games for Konami, and then watching all of their serious efforts make no sales at all. I hear Lost in Shadow only made 70k worldwide.
