Namco, Bandai Pairing Complete

Namco-Hometek, Inc. and Bandai Games, Inc. announced today that the integration of their two companies is now complete.

The new company is officially known as Namco Bandai Games America, Inc., and is a subsidiary of the recently-formed Namco Bandai Holdings, Inc.

The integration brings together two of the most well-respected Japanese-owned interactive entertainment companies. With brands including Pac-Man, Tamagotchi, Digimon, SoulCalibur, Naruto and Tekken, Namco Bandai Games America's separate brands now fall under one strong brand, with many new properties and offerings also on the horizon.

Namco Bandai Holdings, Inc., the parent company, owns all of the Bandai Namco Group US subsidiaries including Bandai America Inc. (Toy), Bandai Entertainment, Inc.(Visual/DVD), NAMCO AMERICA INC. (Arcade machine), NAMCO CYBERTAINMENT INC.(Arcade facility), NAMCO NETWORKS AMERICA INC. (Mobile games) and NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc.(Video games).

"The integration of our two companies has been a team effort over the last several months," said Naruo Uchida, who is joining from Bandai Games Inc. and now serving as the Corporate Planning Senior Vice President of Namco Bandai Games America Inc. "We have worked together to fuse the many strengths each of our companies have to form one strong North American operation."
