The Hudson brand will continue to live on, however.
On March 1, 2012, Konami will be dissolving the entirety of Hudson Soft.
A notice posted by the developer revealed that the company, as well as all of their intellectual properties will be absorbed by Konami. The agreement was reached during a board meeting on January 12, part of an effort by Konami to pool all of its development resources into one company.
Hudson became a subsidiary of Konami in April of 2011, and Konami quickly shifted the developer's focus into the creation of mobile games. Konami became a major shareholder in Hudson in 2001 and bought a majority stake in 2005.
