The maker of Bomberman, Hudson Soft was founded in 1973, making it one of the oldest video game companies in the world. Although the popularity of Bomberman was a huge success during the early and middle generations, Hudson never really created anything as big since. It's true that Mario Party and Sonic Shuffle is the company's work, and it created other--more unusual--games like Far East of Eden, which is why Konami absorbed Hudson in 2012.
So, technically, the company no longer exists. Having said that, games will still be distributed by Konami using the Hudson Soft brand. Not quite lost, then, but no longer independent.
