Bandai Namco is known as a holding company, meaning that they don't exactly develop games, but publish them from other Namco divisions. A similar company named  Bandai Namco Games develops many of the titles that Bandai Namco publishes. Bandai Namco not only publishes video and arcade games, though they have other interests as well including toys and amusement park facilities. Originally the company was separated into Namco and Bandai, though in 2005 the two merged. Companies Banpresto and Namco Tales Studio were also affected by the merger, and the former was fused with Bandai Namco Games.
