Get the full story on why Hudson closed

0

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 making.

The story found at The Kartel is a good one, and it's told by someone who would know. A former high-level employee (and a great guy) takes you through the highs and lows. You get the story of how the busted Bomberman: Act Zero came out. You'll learn how Bomberman Live brought them back. And you'll eventually see how it all slowly crumbled away, bringing us to today. You'll see how this once family-owned business became big and then became corporate out of necessity. And then disappeared.

It's all very depressing. I hope that Konami and the Hudson people that remain choose to keep Hudson's characters and heritage alive. Hudson made such a huge mark on gaming history. It can't just disappear like this.
