Hudson Entertainment Reportedly Shutting Its Doors

Hudson Entertainment's brand manager Morgan Haro has posted a blog announcing the unfortunate news that Hudson Entertainment will be shutting down at the end of the month, and gave a few examples of where he thinks the company went astray.

In a long and heartfelt post, Morgan explains that Hudson Entertainment, the western branch of Hudson Soft, will soon be shutting its doors and that all of the company's planned projects will be canceled. Hudson Soft will remain open in Japan, but will reportedly be focused on social games.

Morgan goes on to say that he believes his company innovated with some titles like XBLA's Bomberman: Live and the recent Wii adventure Lost In Shadow, but that they also missed some key opportunities with other franchises, such as Deca Sports. All in all, it's an interesting albeit morose post mortem from someone who obviously cared very much for the company that he worked for. We wish Haro and Hudson Entertainment's other employees good luck going forward.
