Farewell Hudson....

Quote:
Hudson Entertainment is No More
The North American distributor of Bomberman has fallen by the wayside.
February 8, 2011
Quote:
Hudson is a name that's been around gaming for nearly 30 years, crafting games in series like Bomberman and Adventure Island, amongst many, many others. But according to a blog post by Hudson Entertainment's product and brand manager Morgan Haro, Hudson Entertainment, the outfit that brought Hudson games over to the United States, is being disbanded.

The blog post attributes this to Konami's recent purchase of the Hudson Group. Haro states that "it was revealed today that all of Hudson's previously planned projects have been canceled and that [the Hudson office in San Mateo, CA] will be closing its doors at the end of February." He goes on to clarify that the Hudson Group still exists in Japan, but "will likely be focusing on social games." Presumably, anything that pertains to a Hudson license will go through Konami from here on out.

While it's sad to see such a once-prolific, old-school developer like Hudson fall by the wayside, the candor in Haro's blog post is, in a word, interesting. Haro concludes that Hudson was another victim in the westernization of gaming. "As the industry continues to march towards the drum of Western game development," Haro explains, "Hudson became for me a symbol of why Japan has fallen behind when it comes to bringing world-wide hits to gamers."

The blog post is fascinating, and we recommend you give it a read. You can find it here.

Additionally, Morgan Haro has reached out to IGN with the following statement:

"The only thing I can say is that Hudson Entertainment was a great company with some amazing people behind the scenes. As a fan of Japanese game companies in general, I hope to see more collaboration and more communication between Japan and their US counterparts in the development of titles regardless of whether they're for core, casual, or social games. It can only lead to greater things all around! We all strove for it, and as we made more progress, Hudson Japan was very receptive to our ideas; but unfortunately, looks like our time was limited to improve those processes. At the end of the day though, there were some amazingly awesome people on both sides of the Pacific, and I hope to see great things from the Hudson group going forward."
