In 1977, Nakamura Manufacturing changed its corporate name to Namco.

The logo's font is similar to Nakadai, despite that font released years later.

Although it is not pictured, a variation of this logo with a T (NAMCOT) was used for the company's home console business from 1984 to 1995.

On September 29, 2005, Namco was acquired by a toy and anime company Bandai to form Namco Bandai Holdings. On March 31, 2006, Namco and Bandai's video game operations were merged into Namco Bandai Games (now Bandai Namco Entertainment). This logo is still used for their video arcades and other entertainment products, as well as on games until February 2014.
