Every now and then, companies like to refresh, change and update their logos for marketing reasons, and the latest company to do this will be Japanese publisher and developer Bandai Namco - known for series such as PAC-MAN, Tekken and Tales.

The new logo will come into effect in April next year, and will replace the current logo - which expresses the "fusion" of Bandai and Namco. This new logo, apparently reflects the company's new purpose "fun for all into the future".

"Fun for All into the Future - Bandai Namco exists to share dreams, fun and inspiration with people around the world. Connecting people and societies in the enjoyment of uniquely entertaining products and services, we’re working to create a brighter future for everyone."

The new logo is described as a speech bubble motif or "Fukidashi" in Japanese - expressing the potential of the brand's ability to connect with people around the world and "inspire them with amazing ideas". And here's everything else it represents:

"The speech bubble also represents Japan’s manga culture that has become so popular everywhere. The logo stands for our determination to communicate with fans worldwide, to connect with our fans, and to create entertainment unique to Bandai Namco. The magenta used as the motif color not only represents diversity, but also creates a bright and fun impression and is easy to reproduce."

Again, this mid-term plan will come into effect in April 2022. What do you think of Bandai Namco's logo? Tell us down below.
