Namco (ナムコ) was a Japanese company best know for their arcade classics such as Pac-Man.

The company suffered financial issues between late 1990s and early 2000s due to the struggling Japanese economy and diminishing arcade market, which made it to merged with Bandai in 2005 to become Bandai Namco Holdings. The company still published games until it was merged into Bandai Namco Games in 2006.


Namco also distributed their own Sega NAOMI and Sega Chihiro systems and was one of the three Triforce partners (along with Sega and Nintendo).
