Namco Bandai to Open Studio in Singapore

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 is a game developed by Namco Bandai studios.

Namco Bandai, the studio behind games like Naruto Shippuden, Soulcalibur and Tekken, has announced that it will open a branch in Singapore in June this year. The studio will be in Mediapolis and have a capital of S$1 million. Namco Bandai is also opening a branch in Vancouver, and studios in both countries will be staffed by local employees as well as personnel from Namco Bandai Studios in Tokyo.

According to a press release, Namco Bandai aims to "develop content derived from local cultures and trends as well as those in Japan", and that "Namco Bandai Studios Singapore is positioned as the leading development center for Namco Bandai Studios in Asia, and further reinforces relationships with development partners in the region." It is not immediately clear, however, which specific roles in production the Singapore branch will have.
