After the merger between Bandai and Namco in 2005, there has been a discrepancy between Japan, where the company was named "Bandai Namco", and the west, where the name became "Namco Bandai". That difference is finally going the way of the dodo.
Meh, like people would notice.
I would sounds better like namco bandai, koei temco.
this change every thing no one will be able to know who they are now
It was already Bandai Namco in Japan. I guess they figured why not the world.
Yeah I was scratching my head at that,didn't know that their Japanese company name is different than the rest,I prefer it to be Bandai Namco anyways.
This. Changes. EVERYTHING.
So this is what they have been spending time on instead of making great games. Nice.
I don't like both names :(
It will always be Namco Bandai in my heart
Namco Bandai sounds better.
Actually Bandai Namco is way better,try saying the names in a Japanese accent and you'll see the difference.
Wasn't it already Bandai Namco? Hence why some people called them Bamco...
In Japan yes, in the west no.
Well this feels weird because that's what I already used to call them. I guess I'll start being correct now. Edit: I guess I used to call them that because that is how it's read on the logo, silly me.
Amazing name change
In other news Square-Enix has decided to become Enix-Square. The name change comes with a new commitment to great RPG games instead of the shoddy ones they have put out since PS2. The company's president has already promised a true sequel to Chrono Trigger and a Secret of Mana game that actually makes sense.
What's next? VisionActi? Arts Electronic? SoftUbi!
No cause those are still one company. Namco and Bandai were two before becoming one.
Yeah, Iknow. It was just a failed attemp to be funny. I should've said Blizzard Activision.
Yeah i laughed pretty hard at softubi haha
EnixSquare would have been a better example,lol.
Crap..Instead of calling them "Namdai", I'll have to go with "Banco" or maybe "Bamco". Hmmm, maybe this is a good thing.
My mind was just blown
I can only hope that the games currently in development will be credited Namco Bandai Namco
I always called it Bandai Namco because that's how their label reads (granted I did know it was the otherway around).
Idc. I still just call them "Namco" lol. Sort of like how i still call pluto a planet haha
Until I die, Pluto will remain a planet.
Cool now localise the Vita tales games please..?
As long as they still produce the games I love, whatever.
No worries. Can't wait for Tales Symphonia-Xiilia 2-Zestiria, Soul Calibur: Lost Sword, Ace Combat Infinity, Jojo'z Bizzare, DS 2, and more ^^
This is the last straw. We have to BOYCOTT their games now. Who is with me? Cmon guys. WHOS is WITH ME? That will show the greedy publisher they cant mess with consumers and simple reverse their company name on whim. I am deeply insulted.
strange I had a bet on the title of the company after the merger. So now I guess I lost, but I already ate the pizza >:)
Yaaaaay finally! I been waiting for this since they merged long time ago
