Koei Tecmo Holdings Co., Ltd. 『株式会社コーエーテクモホールディングス』 is a video game company created in 2009 by the merger of two large companies, Koei and Tecmo. The resulting parent company became known as Tecmo Koei Corporation. Its name was changed to Koei Tecmo Corporation in July 2014 to be more in line with its "KT" logo, similarly to Bandai Namco Entertainment changing its name from Namco Bandai Games Inc. the same year.

Koei Tecmo currently contains the following studios:

  • Omega Force, formed in 1996 as Koei's fourth Business Division, develops the Dynasty Warriors games.
  • Kou Shibusawa: Derived from the Pen Name of Koei's founder Yoichi Erikawa, the division was created in 2016 to further develop the Romance of the Three Kingdoms games, in addition to its other fellow loosely historical games. It also did much work on Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

  • Ruby Party: Develops dating sims.
  • Gust Corporation: Develops the Atelier and EXA_PICO games. It was acquired by Koei Tecmo in 2011.
  • Team Ninja: Develops Dead or Alive and Nioh games primarily. Before the merger, it was formerly under Tecmo's umbrella. Also famed for creating the Ninja Gaiden games. Since 2013, it has comprised two teams, Ichigaya Development Group 1 and Ichigaya Development Group 2.

Koei Co., Ltd. 『株式会社コーエー』 is best known for its historically-based (and loosely-based) video games, especially those set in feudal China or Japan. It was founded by the Creator Couple Yoichi and Keiko Erikawa in 1978. Its name seems to derive from the term 光栄 (kōei, "honor"). They made their name in Japan with Turn-Based Strategy games such as Nobunaga's Ambition, but outside Japan their most known and successful series is the Warriors (Musou) franchise of Hack and Slash games (which includes Dynasty Warriors, Samurai Warriors, the crossover Warriors Orochi, and all the licensed crossovers).

The company also has distributed games from Nippon Ichi's catalog in North America and Europe.

Yoko Kanno worked for Koei in the late 80s and early 90s, composing scores for many of their games.
