Namco is placing a lot of chips on the iPhone and other Apple platforms, as the company announced today that it is forming a new division called Apple Games. Apple Games will be managed by Jonathan Kromrey, former games designer and producer at Apple, who will be focusing on "creating new franchise opportunities, overseeing research, managing design and production from internal teams and worldwide external partners, and developing and publishing new and original content."
The company's previous support for the iPhone/iPod Touch included installments in popular franchises with Dig Dug
and i Love Katamari
. It's currently working on Pac-Man: Remix
. We wish Kromrey the best of luck and hope he has some good stuff in mind -- that means no ports of Death by Degrees
or Great Greed
. Actually, the latter doesn't sound like such a bad idea ...
