Hudson Soft games that need to be resurrected

October 27, 2014


There are lots of tears out there, and who can blame them? Hudson Soft had some of the best games ever to grace your living room game consoles.

If you grew up in the era of the golden age of gaming, oh let's say going back to about 1980, around the Atari 2600 days as I have. Then of course you managed to live through the game cartridge crash of '84, while new game systems like the 8-bit Nintendo and TurboGrafx-16 came to the rescue to show the world how real games are made.

Hudson Soft was a fine and genuine example of a third party developer that made that vision a reality. They did it with wonderful hits like Bonk's Adventure, Bomberman, Adventure Island, Far East of Eden, and the list goes on and on. Hudson was one game company that really made a mark in the gaming world.

Unfortunately sometimes all good things must come to an end, such was the case with Hudson Soft. Some of you are asking yourself, why am I even covering this when this blog is about Konami games only? That's because some of you still don't know that Konami bought out Hudson Soft in April of last year. Indeed, Hudson was on a steady decline for a while, managing to put out another Far East of Eden title for the Xbox 360 not too long before their demise.

But hold on a second, now that Konami has them in their pockets, they also plan to license out the IP (Intellectual Property) rights to other companies willing to take those lost gems and make them a reality again.

Bonk's Adventure, Far East of Eden, Adventure Island, and even the long running classic Bomberman now have the potential to be revived in some manner or another on who knows what game format. It could be current gen, next generation consoles, mobile gaming or hand held gaming platforms. For now Konami is simply extending the Hudson Soft licensing hand to whoever they choose to get the job done, and done right.

So which ones do you want to see make a comeback to the gaming scene? My personal wish list is Far East of Eden, Bonk's Adventure, and Star Soldier. An RPG, an adventure game, and a shooter. A nice mix up I think. Which ones have made your own personal wish list?

Let me know what you think should happen in the comment section below.
