Take the Japanese legends behind Tekken and Ridge Racer, merge them with one of the biggest toy manufacturers in the world and what do you get? The ultimate in arcade and home video gaming - Bandai Namco!
The year 2005 sparked the fusion between these two giants and became a mission to make gaming even more exciting and appeal to a wider audience than ever before. This was evident with the releases of Afro Samurai and Eternal Sonata. It was shortly after the merge that Bandai Namco released their very own home space on the PlayStation Home.
Sure, Namco have always been awesome, even before joining forces with Bandai! But since the merge they have only got better and become stronger. You just have to play fantastic games such as Vampire Night, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2, Magna Carta 2 and the many Naruto games, just to see how much of a good thing the merge actually was!
Bandai Namco are growing bigger as the years go by and the games they are churning out just keep getting better. They will always be either one step ahead or on the same level as their competitors and they will surely be around for years to come!
Bandai Namco claims that their mission is to provide “dreams, fun and inspiration”, across the globe and clearly this mission is proving to be a big success!
