Tecmo Koei To Change Company Name To Koei Tecmo In Europe

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.

  1. Nintendo needs to bundle fatal frame 1- 4 with the new fatal frame game………. that would be awesome, especially 4, since some faggot named reggie didn’t bring it to the states

    1. Why not stop asking for fucking old games to be released and instead ask for new ones? Stuck in the past, just like Nintendo huh?

      1. No dumbass, the west never got to pay fatal frame 4. So the way i could see playing it is if nintendo released the first 4 in a collection or have it bundled with the new game. Yeah but i bet your retarded ass can’t wait for the new rehash mario, pokemon or zelda game. I’ve been asking for new ip’s and asking for old franchises back for a long time. splatoon looks gay as hell and is a weak new ip compared to some new ip’s nintendo came up with before. Oh and i don’t count garbage like wii fit as a new quality ip by nintendo, i guess that’s THE NEW you are having fun with from nintendo?

        Not to mention FAGGOT sony had the most worthless collections out of anybody, at least this collection or bundle im thinking of would make sense.

        1. And where did you get the idea that “that’s THE NEW you are having fun with from nintendo”? I hated the things they were doing since the Wii

          And a pro tip: You don’t have to use words like faggot or gay as adjectives for everything. Makes you sound very barbaric

          1. No your just a dumb mindless hypocrite when what im saying makes sense but yet sony is the king of worthless collection…. oh… ho a SLY collection. I can get ALL of those games on ps2 for a total of 10$. LMAO fatal frame is like 25$ a piece.

            Yeah but im stuck in the past for wanting to play the forth installment of fatal frame and not to mention this would be nintendo’s first hd collection and it would be a worthy one just to play 4 alone.

            1. Tell me how I’m a hypocrite? Lmao, don’t just throw words like that, sounds ridiculous.

              Mentioning Sony doesn’t change the fact that this Fatal Frame collection you keep yapping on is worthless

              You’re stuck in the past because you want Nintendo to keep rehashing old games and bundling them. I would prefer them to make new, innovative games and be successful, unlike you who wants them to continue being like Crapcom and resting on their laurels with IPs like Mega Man. That’s my point since the start, your fanboy mind can’t seem to register that

              1. Your a dumb cunt, there is only 4 fatal frame games faggot. The us only got 3. YOU are dumb and would rather have the same damn games. Your probably excited for hyrule warriors. WHICH is a bigger rehash than fatal frame, 9 dynasty warriors now., not to mention that survivor horror is almost dead.

                keep calling me a fanboy cunt i bet you don’t play anything on nintendo that’s not made by nintendo. That means bayonetta and x.

  2. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

    Soon all Asian empires will just switch their names for pathetic reasons…

    Sony = Nyso, Nintendo = Tendonin, Capcom = Comcap and so on…

      1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

        Or Quadraxis Tendonin Commander…

        The horror…

        I hope High Command aways keeps Nintendo…

        Leave luck to heaven…

        1. They should never leave luck to heaven, it always goes to shit, but I know where you got that phrase from, and yes I know its origins

          1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

            It basically means that everything our empire does is either succesful or not, there is nothing in between…

            Which is why Lord Iwata has taken the blame for the poor Wii U sales and cut his resources by half twice…

            Luck and fate have no existence within our borders…

    So when can we expect Enix Square? lmfao

    Anyway, if Tecmo Koei of America doesn’t change their name to Koei Tecmo til months after Hyrule Warriors releases in the United States, I wonder how many case collectors will actually buy the game twice: one with the Tecmo Koei brand name on it when it first releases & one with the Koei Tecmo brand name on it months later after the change. This is a big if, though, since they could either change the name before Hyrule Warriors releases or they can just ship them with the name change already on the case.

    1. Tallon Ridley XIII: Kalas

      I can see a few collectors doing just that. Just like how some coin collectors will collect the two different mints of United States coins.

    I don’t see any practical reason for this. Besides, Tecmo Koei sounds better. It rolls right off the tongue. Koei Tecmo sounds awkward.

  5. Well, the K in the logo comes before the T anyway, & Westerners read from left to right. Still, why not just change the logo to TK & leave the actual name alone?
