I’m pretty sure the logo always read as “Bandai Namco”.I thought I just had a Berenstain Bears moment
I could have sworn "Namco Bandai" was that company's name, until I just now noticed something that said "Bandai Namco". So I checked Wikipedia and apparently they swapped who gets top billing in 2014, when Namco Bandai Games merged into Bandai Namco Entertainment? But I checked one of my older games from '07, and it indeed says "Bandai Namco" in that order.
That's confusing and I'm not autistic enough to read up on the timeline, but I guess from here on out they're officially "Bandai Namco" universally.
you gotta get game company names right so when you ask a question your thread doesn't get derailed by total retards nitpicking about the order of the names, or capitalization, or whatever the fuck weird bullshit the official name uses just for style. i've seen idiots argue over the slash in "Fate/Stay Night"
