Tecmo Koei – the publisher behind such franchises as Dead or Alive, Dynasty Warriors and most recently the Zelda spin-off Hyrule Warriors – are set to switch around its company name in Europe. As announced on Twitter yesterday, the company will be known as Koei Tecmo from July 1.
In a similar case earlier this year, Bandai Namco (Namco Bandai as before) changed its company name to follow suit with the Japanese division. Tecmo Koei America has yet to confirm the name change but it will be, no doubt, on the cards for the company’s unity in the near future.
