Hudson Soft is now 100% owned by Konami, it was revealed this morning. The Bomberman publisher is to be fully consumed by the Japanese powerhouse, which already owns a 54% stake in the company. 

Hudson shall become a wholly owned subsidiary of Konami, and will be used primarily to strengthen the company's mobile and social gaming abilities. Hudson CEO Michihiro Ishizuka will resign March 31, with the stock swap expected to go down on April 1. 

It's not yet known if Hudson will keep its name, as Konami is currently investigating the possibilities. Do not expect any of this news to hinder your monthly supply of Bomberman spin-offs.
