Earlier this year, Konami fully acquired Hudson and shut down their U.S. division, Hudson Entertainment. Hudson’s legacy includes Adventure Island, Bloody Roar, Bonk, and of course Bomberman. As an aside, in addition to whatever else they’re working on, Hudson recently developed something called Nightmare Dinosaur, which Konami will publish in Australia.
