Konami will be 100% owners of classic software house Hudson on April Fools' Day this year. The news came from a recent shareholder's meeting that sees other changes for the Bomberman maker.
According to Andriasang
, "As Konami indicated when announcing its plans a couple of months back, Hudson will be focusing its resources going forward on SNS (social network services). Going along with this change, the company will be cutting staff through a voluntary redundancy program. Those who step forward will receive severance and other bonuses and will be given assistance with future job placement. The company is seeking 40 people for the program."
Also noted is that the US arm of Hudson will close in March.
