BANDAI NAMCO Studios Inc. with the assistance of Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), is set to operate a studio in Kuala Lumpur known as BANDAI NAMCO Studios Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. (BNSMY) in September 2016.
The newly set up Malaysian studio will be collaborating with BANDAI NAMCO Singapore Studios (BNSS) to focus on the development of contents for their customers all over the world. The Malaysian studio will become BANDAI NAMCO’s hub for visual art production in the region in an effort to strengthen their partnerships with key partners in the neighboring countries and build a global art production organization.
Furthermore, BANDAI NAMCO is partnering with Malaysia’s leading CGI studio; Lemon Sky Animation Sdn. Bhd. to ease the commencement of business and with the initial set up capital of RM3.3 million, the studio is set for rapid growth and expansive opportunities.
The developer and publisher of popular titles such as Pac-Man, Dragon Ball, Tekken, and others is constantly aiming for cost-appropriate content creation in optimal locations for development as a strategy to reach out to more customers in emerging markets.
In tandem with its objective, BANDAI NAMCO Studios Malaysia that was established in March 2016 proudly supports MDEC’s aspirations in making Malaysia a regional hub for games development under the #MYGAMEON initiative.
