Tecmo and Koei have announced that a solid plan to merge the two companies will be in place within two months, Kotaku reports.

“A committee has been formed to oversee the business of the two newly-merged companies, comprised of the presidents of both companies (acting as joint-chairmen) as well as executive representatives and non-executive representatives of both companies,” said the firms in a statement.

“This integration will allow employees to demonstrate the full extent of their abilities, so as to best serve the company in the future. This committee is expected to produce a concrete integration scheme for unifying the two companies in the next two months.”

The new emerges after Tecmo shrugged off Square advances at the beginning of September.
