HUDSON ENTERTAINMENT REVAMPS WEBSITE
Entertainment Enthusiast Site Includes Features on Games, Music, and More
SAN MATEO, CA - June 6, 2006 - Hudson Entertainment, the North American publishing arm for Hudson Soft, today announced the unveiling of their new website, which was recently revamped with their trend-savvy fans in mind. In addition to information on classic and upcoming Hudson titles, the site will now provide movie, gadget and cell phone reviews, as well as news from Japan and the latest trends from the world of hip-hop.
“We designed this site to entertain," said John Greiner, President and CEO of Hudson Entertainment. “Hudson has delivered on its promise to entertain for more than 30 years. Continuing with that tradition, we created a site that reflects our dedication to delivering relevant content to our fans.
“Those who love old-school Bomberman and the Turbo Grafx system will appreciate the attention paid to our classic brands, while true entertainment enthusiasts will enjoy new features like updates on the latest entertainment buzz from Japan and reviews of popular downloadable ringtones which are provided by our business partner, The Source."
Site visitors can delve into developer blogs, enter weekly contests, read interviews with Hudson executives, and sound off on the latest news as a member of “The Hive," Hudson’s online community forum. Hudson plans on updating the site with fresh content several times per week.
“Too often game companies are closed off to their fanbase," said Greiner. “We’d like to pull back the curtain, so to speak, and give the Hudson community a little more."
