Banpresto was a Japanese toy and video game company famous for its anime-based games and action figures, mostly the Super Robot Wars video game series and the SD Gundam toys.

The company was founded in 1977 under the name of Hoei Sangyo Co. Ltd. to later change its name as Coreland in 1982 and being third party for Sega. It became partially owned by Bandai in 1989, when it gained its current name. It became a wholly owned subsidiary of Bandai Namco Holdings in March 2006.

Finally, the company ended during The New '10s: the video games section was merged in 2008 with BECnote  into B.B. Studios, a subsidiary of Bandai Namco Games (but still publishing as Banpresto until 2017). In the other part, the toys section was absorbed by Bandai Spirits (Bandai Namco Holdings' toy subsidiary) in February 2019.
