Koei Tecmo exec calls company 'Kotec,' we snicker


Game Watch reports that a party was recently held at Tokyo's Imperial Hotel celebrating the merger between Tecmo and Koei. During the festivities -- which included Koei co-founder Keiko Erikawa singing "The Girl from Ipanema" -- an executive decided to try out a new moniker for the company: Kotec. Not a bad amalgamation -- though our own staff was really rooting for Moei -- but there's something ... off about it. Something we can't quite place. Oh, wait, now we remember.

Maybe the company should just follow Namco Bandai's example and stick with Koei Tecmo.
