The studio will house over 1,000 staff, including employees split off from its Namco Bandai Games subsidiary, and all its staff from its former Namco Tales Studio subsidiary. The company's Namco Bandai Games division will continue to act as a publisher, while this new studio will focus on game development for the company.
