Tecmo Koei Swallows Tecmo and Koei
Development subsidiaries to be absorbed into parent, but brands to remain in tact.
Tecmo Koei Games announced today that effective April 1, it will absorb its Koei and Tecmo development subsidiaries. The two subsidiaries were originally created specifically for the planning and development of software following the 2009 merger where then Koei absorbed then Tecmo to form Tecmo Koei Games.
Following the absorption, the once separate development subsidiaries will be able to operate as one under Tecmo Koei Games management. The merged entity will continue to develop game software from both the Koei and Tecmo brands.
The move is being done to improve efficiency in Tecmo Koei's game software business and more flexibly and appropriately distribute resources.
