I'm sure you've heard that Hudson has closed its doors and all of their projects have been canceled. It's one thing to say that Konami gobbled them up, but it's another to hear the full story, which has been a decade in the m...
Good morrow, Toidlings. I come before you with the fiftieth fabulous foray into foul and frivolous feculence. In other words, this is The Destructoid Show Episode 50. (Please ignore the fact that I've only been on it for 5 w...
Here's the worst piece of news I've heard in a while. According to Morgan Haro, the CEO of Hudson Entertainment, the Western branch of Hudson Soft, will be closing down at the end February when Konami acquires the company. Al...

We got a batch of images for Hudson's Lost in Shadow tonight. They show off the eighth area of the game (according to the name of the folder they arrived in) and, apparently, there's a lot of water in the level. I know t...
 Hudson has released the first of a four part documentary detailing the making of its upcoming Wii title, Lost in Shadow.  In this first part, the game's director, designer, programmer, and sound lead discuss the g...
It's looking like a golden year for platformers on the Wii. Sonic Colors, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Donkey Kong Country Returns and Epic Mickey are all to come, and with such an excellent roster of games, it would be easy to fo...
A word like "unveiled" gives an air of drama that probably should not be used to describe the release of screenshots. If I go back and change the headline now, I'll have to spend another twenty minutes trying to find a way to...
If you’re okay with not owning one to put on your shelf, here’s an easy way to get the rare SuperGrafx version of Ghouls ‘N Ghosts -- download it from the PlayStation Network. Siliconera is reporting that Hu...

It's been an interesting year for retro games making a return, especially those that were b-level at best. For example, Rocket Knight made an acceptable return in a downloadable platformer, and Nintendo has brought back Kid I...

While last night was a night for Konami, they have a thoughtful policy of including Hudson in the festivities. Off in a separate room, Hudson was showing off a couple of Wi titles they have planned for this year. One of them ...

Hudson's new iPad game Knights of the Phantom Castle was not on my radar until this afternoon. I saw some screenshots of the really nice looking, 16-bit-ish strategy game and was like hey, this looks good! Sprites, role-playi...
People like to criticize cheap scares, but I frankly love them. A slow walk down a dark corridor followed by a shameless "BOO" moment works every time. Don't get me wrong, creepy psychological horror is great, but sometimes y...
Dream Chronicles started out as a PC game, but now it's coming to Xbox's Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network by way of Hudson. It's a surreal mystery dreamscape adventure game. That make any sense? It will when you see it...

While the trailer for Hudson's Calling had an element of camp to it, I'm willing to believe it could provide some creepy moments. After all, you do play as a generally defenseless characters, which always seems to provide mor...
