Namco Bandai will now be known as Bandai Namco worldwide


In moving to unify the names of their overseas subsidiaries, Namco Bandai Japan have announced that they will now be known as Bandai Namco worldwide.

The change was confirmed during the company’s board of directors meeting, held on January 23rd last week. This will come into effect from April 1st, when the 31 subsidiaries of the company will all change their names from Namco Bandai to Bandai Namco.

They reason behind the decision is to elevate the appeal and value of their games abroad, with Namco Bandai Games Europe will therefore become Bandai Namco Games Europe, whereas Namco Bandai Games America will switch to Bandai Namco Games America, and so on.
