HUDSON SOFT CO. will participate in developing exclusive titles for Nintendo’s upcoming portable system, the “Nintendo 3DS™,”. HUDSON SOFT is thrilled to have a chance to work with the new system, which will allow players to experience a game in three dimensions without any optical peripherals.

“We are anticipating that this new system will allow us to create great new content for Hudson fans,” said Dai Kudo, Director of Consumer Products. “The Nintendo 3DS is going to change the way games are experienced, and we look forward to playing a part of the initial movement into this new dimension of entertainment.”

HUDSON SOFT is currently developing a new installment of the Bomberman franchise for the handheld system, a trademark IP that has sold more than 10 million units throughout the franchise’s history. HUDSON SOFT is also developing a new title in the 3 million-unit-selling sports-compilation franchise DECA SPORTS, along with a new game in the ball-rolling Kororinpa franchise.

Hudson Entertainment is the North and South American subsidiary of Hudson Soft, an international provider of games and entertainment content founded in 1973. Hudson Entertainment focuses on three key businesses: console retail games, digital download content, and music. Hudson introduced best-selling videogame franchises including Bomberman, Bonk, Military Madness and Deca Sports. Through numerous partnerships with record labels, Hudson has become a leading provider of digital music and video content. For more information on Hudson Entertainment, please visit www.hudsonent.com.

Just in case anyone’s doubting the validity of the images, they do indeed come from Nintendo’s own server. I suppose it’s not completely confirmed that this will see a retail release, but it’d be a waste otherwise. It looks like the developers have done a considerable job upgrading the textures.
