Creator: KOEI
Koei Co., Ltd. 『株式会社コーエー』 is a video game company best known for its historically-based (and loosely-based) video games, especially those set in feudal China or Japan. They made their name in Japan with Turn-Based Strategy games such as Nobunaga's Ambition, but outside Japan by far the most successful of their games is the Warriors (Musou) franchise of Hack and Slash games (which includes Dynasty Warriors, Samurai Warriors and the crossover Warriors Orochi).

The company also distributes games from Nippon Ichi's catalog in North America and Europe. In 2010, Koei merged with 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.
