Konami is not doing much with their own damn franchises so I don't expect them to do anything with Hudson's franchises

I miss Bomberman. But I miss Hudson Soft in general even more. They were, hands down, one of my favorite developers over the years. I really wish someone like Nintendo had bought Hudson, instead of Konami, who obviously didn't give two shits about the company or their assets. They just absorbed them, killed them off, and they're not even doing anything with all those franchises they now own. It's pathetic, and kinda makes me hate Konami more than I already was beginning to (on account of their now fairly shitty games).

RIP Hudson Soft. Never again shall we probably see the likes of:

Bomberman
Adventure Island
Bonk
Military Madness
Air Zonk
Star Soldier
Neutopia
Alien/Demon Crush
Milon's Secret Castle
Legendary Axe
Gate of Thunder
Dungeon Explorer
Bloody Roar
Kororinpa: Marble Madness
or Lost in Shadow

Hudson did a good job of supporting the TurboGrafx-16, I would even say Bonk was the third mascot of the 16-bit generation.

Adventure Island is another game series that I remember being good for it's time.

Also, some of the guys from Hudson that worked on the Mario Party games did join Nintendo to form "ND Cube".

The great thing about Hudson, was that from 1989-1994 or so, they were making games for NES, SNES and GB, while also being the main company supporting TG16. They seriously made probably the best games on Turbo Graphx. You can get Neutopia (1 at least) on Wii Virtual Console, and it and it's sequel are really great Zelda clones. Star Soldier is one of the best shmup series there is. The NES Adventure Island's are amazing, though New Adv. Island on TG16 is really good, and the Bonk games, both the NES port, and the trilogy on TG16, are also great.

There's plenty to love, I'd totally suggest trying more of their catalogue.

Yeah, I'm glad that Nintendo hired several of the Hudson peeps and started Nd Cube. At least the same Mario Party people will live on. However, I'm sad that Nintendo didn't buy Hudson instead of Konami, because Nintendo guaranteed would have had them making at least SOME of their old franchises, like Bomberman.



No mention of Saturn Bomberman?

Saturn Bomberman is clearly the best game in the series. 10-player local play with two multitaps and ten controllers!

I am really hoping that a Bomberman game with solid online and local multiplayer is released this generation. After all, the Xbox One supports up to eight controllers!



I bombed misserman. Wait, what?

Anyway, Bomberman is awesome but not the last 2-3 versions. My favorite is probably Super Bomberman on SNES.



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

few weeks ago I had the same debate with some friends.
We were playing bomberman with 5 on our DS and wondered what the hell happened to him

there are still people playing bomberman live on XBL. Hit me up (superryo) if you want to play some bomberman. Unfortunately Bomberman Battlefest bombed. It had so much potential but the netcode sucked and was laggy as hell and no one plays it.

I don't have an xbox man, but I do have the ps3, wii, and ds online versions of bomberman if you wanna play those.

LOL

Super Bomberman 2 on the SNES was my first Bomberman game, I still remember playing with my brother to this song.

Konami is Metal gear. Thats it. Even Pro evo has fallen from grace (and is shockingly bad on the latest iteration).

It required Hideo Kojima's influence for them to even green light Castlevania lords of shadow.

Its not a well managed company. They fired team silent and proceeded to fail at outsourcing Silent hill, destroying the franchise.

They also dissolved team Suikoden and now cant do anything with the franchise. I know they tried to get the producer back on board, but he gave them the middle finger, wich means Suikoden is pretty much done aswell.

Yeah... if metal gear falls from grace (and ground zeroes has been a step in that direction), konami is done. Maybe its for the best, cause whoever buys them may get their IP's to good use.

To be perfectly honest, Konami is a company that has been fucking up for a big number of years. I wouldn't mind if Konami would just  go away and its IPs would go to better, more talented devs.
