Konami's Hawaii studio shutting down

updated 12:10 pm EDT, Tue August 1, 2006

Konami Hawaii gone

As a part of global restructuring, Konami's Hawaii studio is closing, says Honolulu's Star Bulletin. The studio was responsible for titles like DDR Ultramix 2 and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mutant Melee. Forty employees will be affected. Though the company intends to pull all game development out of the United States eventually, Konami says it will try to find places for the Hawaii workers elsewhere in the organization. Continued US operations will now be focused on casino and "digital entertainment" operations in Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
