Konami came under fire in 2015 when, for a number of reasons, they canned ''VideoGame/SilentHills'' and Creator/HideoKojima left Konami. Following that, Konami announced their departure from console gaming to focus on mobile gaming and a larger focus on its non-video gaming domestic efforts, namely pachinko and slot machines -- a move that has left a sour taste in many fans' mouths, especially Western fans. While Konami still produces UsefulNotes/{{arcade game}}s, most notably the Franchise/{{BEMANI}} franchise, Westerners find no relevance in such games due to a combination of NoExportForYou and overall decline in opinion of arcade games in the West. However, it was [[http://throwingdigitalsheep.com/konami-exiting-triple-a-space/ reported]] [[https://youtu.be/wAeD6BR9e5k?t=480 that]] the rumors "departure from console gaming" is false and they are [[https://www.konami.com/jobs/en/career/spe/mgs_en.php hiring]] for a "new Metal Gear" project. Konami later announced a [[https://youtu.be/QwkvVWTS7OM pachinslot machine based on Metal Gear Solid 3]].

Due to Nintendo's restrictions on third-party licensing during that era, Konami could release only five games per year for the NES. Konami found a way around this by creating a quasi-independent subsidiary known as "Ultra Games", which published the first ''VideoGame/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'' game, ''Skate or Die'', ''[[VideoGame/MetalGear1 Metal Gear]]'', and an expanded version of ''VideoGame/{{Gyruss}}'', among others. (They made a similar move in Europe with Palcom Software Ltd.) After Nintendo relaxed its standards, Konami closed Ultra in 1992 and absorbed its remaining employees into its American branch. Some of the other Konami staff left that same year to create Creator/{{Treasure}} Co. Ltd. Konami also owned a majority stake in Creator/HudsonSoft until making it a wholly owned subsidiary.
