This is going to take me some time to get right – Namco Bandai are officially changing its name to ‘Bandai Namco’.

The publisher is doing so in an effort to unify its global brand. The new BANDAI NAMCO Games corporate logo will be fully integrated in all branding, effective April 1, 2014.

“The BANDAI NAMCO Games logo has now become synonymous with great gaming products and services; it’s the perfect time for us to unify our corporate brand around the world and move forward together in a united front as a global company.”

Bandai and NAMCO implemented a management integration merging the brands, in 2005 where the group became NAMCO BANDAI Holdings Inc.

“Since its merger in late 2005, BANDAI NAMCO Games has grown to be one of the largest and most successful game publishers in its native Japan, the United States, Latin America, and Europe,” says Nobuhiro Kasahara, Chief Operating Officer at NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc.
