It looks like Japanese game publishers are going on a shopping spree! Not only has Square Enix submitted a bid to acquire Eidos, but Andriasang has reported that Namco Bandai plans to buy out D3 Publisher.
While it's arguably not as impactful as Square Enix acquiring Eidos, it's interesting that Namco Bandai is making this move. With severeal publishers and developers struggling in the current economic climate, there could be dozens of acquisitions in 2009.
Any thoughts on the deal? Would the new company be called Namco Bandai D3 (joke)? Think the new company would make a Ben 10 vs. Naruto game? Who would win that fight anyway?
