Wow, Hudson’s Star Soldier Isn’t Entirely Dead

starsol8If you had a TurboGrafx-16 and liked shoot ’em ups you probably remember the name Star Solider. Super Star Soldier and later Soldier Blade were some of the best shooters for Hudson’s console. Fast forward to 2008 and Star Solider remerged with Star Soldier R, a WiiWare game with a two minute and five minute score attack modes.


Then Hudson got completely absorbed by Konami and most of Hudson’s projects including the completed Bonk: Brink of Extinction were put on ice. But, there is a new Star Soldier game… thanks to GREE. Star Soldier for GREE is a port of the 1986 console game redesigned for mobile phones.


The game has a vertical layout and an option to turn auto fire on or off. Star Ocean for GREE also has the two and five minute score attack modes, Caravan mode, achievements, and additional ships to pilot.


You can get Star Soldier for GREE on iTunes as a free download.

      I had to keep re-reading it cuz of that typo. I was beginning to wonder when they switch games and companies for the article

  • Spirit Macardi

    Now if only they’d bring back Bomberman >.>

    T_T Takahashi Meijin is going to cry seeing how bad Hudson end up now.

    I wish Konami would do SOMETHING with the Hudson franchises. That new Bonk game was completely finished, they could just toss it up on PSN/XBL. The world could also use another Bloody Roar.

    • Konami needs to get into the Fighting Game Community. They have other IPs that are also Fighters, and they need to be remade relevant in our current generation or the next. But, they should also be multiplatform. I don’t want another Killer “Incident” to be an Exclusive.

    What is going on in this article

    Star Ocean
    Star Solider

    • It’s a massive typo. And it changes much of the message in the article. But you know that Spencer meant Star Soldier in all accounts.

  • Linhua

    T^T … Hudson, what are you doing out there… where’s that new Bloody Roar…?

    … we’re still waiting, Hudson… we’ve ALWAYS been waiting…

    • Nameless App 1989

      If you’re talking about the one announced on Twitter, then you, along with others, were trolled.

      Their account was hacked, there is no new Bloody Roar coming soon.

      • Linhua

        … yeah, I already knew about that and honestly did not have that in mind when I mentioned Bloody Roar.

        … it was something that I pretty much forgotten about after fnding out it was a fake… but that won’t stop me from continuing to let them know we want another Bloody Rawr!
