'''Koei Co., Ltd.''' 『株式会社コーエー』 is a video game company best known for its historically-based (and [[VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory loosely-based]]) video games, especially those set in feudal China or Japan. They made their name in Japan with TurnBasedStrategy games such as ''VideoGame/NobunagasAmbition'', but outside Japan by far the most successful of their games is the ''[[Franchise/DynastyWarriors Warriors]]'' (''Musou'') franchise of HackAndSlash games (which includes ''VideoGame/DynastyWarriors'', ''VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors'' and the crossover ''VideoGame/WarriorsOrochi'').

The company also distributes games from Creator/NipponIchi's catalog in North America and Europe. In 2010, Koei merged with Creator/{{Tecmo}}, and the resulting parent company became known as '''Tecmo Koei Corporation'''. Its name was changed again to ''Koei Tecmo Corporation'' in July 2014 to be more in line with its "KT" logo, similarly to Bandai Namco changing its name from Namco Bandai Games Inc. the same year.

Music/YokoKanno worked for Koei in the late 80s and early 90s, composing scores for many of their games.
