The Bee died.

Well ... I never cared about any Hudson games. Bomberman's decent, I guess. But it's always sad to hear of stuff like this.

I was under the impression that Konami already owned them? So this just sounds like Hudson's properties, such as Bomberman, now belong to Konami. So we'll still be getting their titles; it's just the brand name that will be no more (outside of Japan). This doesn't seem as bad as it could have been, but it's still kind of sad to see long-lasting companies disappear.

I'll miss Honey Girl.

They just better make sure that that new Bomberman for the 3DS gets released. It looks awesome and there will be blood if that game doesn't get released.

Sounds like their US branch is now dead, their Japanese branch is still alive but may just make "social" games, and Konami owns all of the IPs.

I wonder what this means for Mario Party? Hmm. And I was just posting about how Nintendo could have made a better relationship there.

I hope someone scoops up Adventure Island. They also made the best Batman game before Arkham Asylum. As long as Konami keeps making Bomberman games, I think it will be alright.

What Batman game was that?!?

Too bad about Hudson - I guess without their gravy train of Mario Party titles, they really didn't have much else to fall back on.

Milon's Secret Castle was one of my first games. For that, Hudson will always have a place in my heart

I have many fond memories of trying to beat Adventure Island on NES as a kid. I hate to see them go.

Aw man... going to really miss Hudson. Amazingly, they were responsible for some of my favorite releases, including the Bonk series on TG-16, Bloody Roar (with Eighting), Bomberman of course, Adventure Island... wow.

Hopefully Konami does right by their IPs.

This is Hudson's US branch. I can't think of much they did offhand, besides XBLA Bomberman, maybe? I know Act Zero was Japan. It seems like Hudson Japan still exists. I wonder if Lost in Shadow really, really bombed. It didn't even have a chance to sell yet, though, right?

Also, wasn't the Mario Party team folded into the restructured NDCube, which made Wii Party? I think Nintendo is fine with Party games.

Man I really love the Bomberman series.

It really sucks to see a lot of great Japanese developers filing bankruptcy, or closing.

Sorry about that Batman thing. Got Hudson and Sunsoft mixed up.

I deserve one of these:

Hey no worries. In fact I always confused the two as well. I have no idea why.

Actually it may be the font and the fact that both of them used blue.

I weep a single tear for Master Higgins.
