Tecmo Koei has announced plans to absorb both development subsidiaries of both Tecmo and Koei.

The move is said to improve efficiency as well as flexibility and appropriately distribute resources.

As of April 1, the groups – previous created for planning and creating software following the merger of Koei and Tecmo in 2009

After both companies are absorbed, the two development units will operate as one under the management of Tecmo Koei Games. Software will continue to come from both brands, though.
