Koei Tecmo

Not long after the earth shattering news — well, not really — that Namco Bandai would be known by its Japanese name (Bandai Namco) around the world, we now have Hyrule Warriors developer Tecmo Koei reversing its name in Europe.

Below is the announcement of the switch that'll take place from 1st July in Europe.

There's no equivalent announcement in North America yet, so what will we do? Do we have to call the company Tecmo Koei when reporting from a North American perspective and Koei Tecmo on other occasions? The mind boggles.

It does actually make sense for brand names to align between Japanese and Western territories, and we'd expect the American division to fall into line too.

So, from 1st July stop saying Tecmo Koei, or Agitha will beat you up.
