MCV talks to VP of sales, marketing and publishing Olivier Comte.
MCV: You’re setting out a new vision for NBP in Europe. Can you summarise it for us?
OC: Namco Bandai has a vast heritage in the games industry, with Pac-Man, Soul Calibur, Ridge Racer and so on. But it has never had a strong task force in Europe. Because of this, we acquired part of Atari’s European business to form Namco Bandai Partners.
We have set ourselves a challenge in widening the Namco Bandai portfolio. We want to be a major company – a top five publisher – in the games industry worldwide.
