During the NES generation, Nintendo had a bunch of rather strict third-party restrictions in North America and Europe (probably as a result of wanting more quality control after the Crash)... including that each company could only publish 5 games a year. To get around this, Konami made subsidiaries Ultra Games (NA) and Palcom (EU) for the sole purpose of releasing 5 more games a year.

Also, these other new characters are Ameritendo and Eurotendo, Nintendo's younger siblings distributing games to other places of the world.

Gotta credit them with Snake's Revenge, a ridiculous game that only gets more ridiculous when connected to the later Metal Gear Solid series' ornate political satire.
