The Name Bandai Namco is uttered by gamers of all genres today. Bandai Namco Entertainment is a multinational video game publishing company based in the futuristic skylines of Tokyo, Japan. However, the formation of Bandai Namco Entertainment resulted from an infusion between two giants two decennia ago. Bandai Namco Entertainment was formed on 31 March 2006, following a corporate merge between Namco and Bandai on 29 September of the previous year, known initially as Namco Bandai Games. Their influence has gifted us with countless prominent franchises such as Tekken, Super Smash Bros, Little Nightmares, and the mascot of Bandai Namco, Pacman, and many more.
Bandai Namco’s contributions to single-player role-playing games can’t be denied either. Souls-like titles like Dark Souls and Elden Ring shaped a whole genre around them. The goliath also holds licenses to various Japanese media franchises, such as Shonen Jump, Kamen Rider, and Super Sentai, to name a few. As of March 2022, Bandai Namco Entertainment is the third-largest video game corporation in Japan concerning revenue, after Sony Interactive Entertainment and Nintendo, succeeding Sega, Square Enix, and Konami, to name a few.
