When two of Japan's oldest publishers Namco Ltd and Bandai Co Ltd merged back in 2005, for whatever reason the combined company became known as Bandai Namco locally in Japan, but Namco Bandai everywhere else in the world.

The better part of a decade later that disparity has been corrected, and we're now to refer to it as Bandai Namco in whatever lands we might find ourselves -- all 31 overseas subsidiaries, including Australia. The official reason offered for the change is the unification of the company's brand in order to increase its value and appeal on a global scale, but we prefer to think that someone in Tokyo finally just noticed the typo. Hopefully Tecmo Koei/Koei Tecmo is next.

Does it have something to do with the Japanese having last names first?
