Namco Bandai starts online gaming division

We know that Namco Bandai is expanding further into the west, hiring three new North American executives, but apparently the company's extending its tendrils in all directions. According to Siliconera, the company has just opened a division to focus on online gaming with its sights set on conquering the rest of Asia.

Will you see the fruits of the new division coming westward, as well? Well, considering that the company's current online properties include Gundam Network Operation 2 and Pro Baseball Famista Online, we wouldn't cancel our WoW subscription just yet.
