Konami has just announced that they will be dissolving Hudson Soft on 1st March, bringing to an end a company that's become beloved by gamers over the years for such unforgettable contributions to gaming as the PC Engine/TurboGrafx-16 systems and the ever-popular Bomberman and Star Soldier series.

For those of you who don't remember, Konami purchased a majority stake in Hudson Soft back in April of last year, a move the company hoped would turn things around for the struggling publisher. Sadly, this was not to be.

No word on whether or not Konami will continue to release Hudson titles in the future, but we'll keep you posted on any news as it becomes available.
