Namco Founded in 1955, Namco (Nakamura Manufacturing Ltd. at the time) got its start installing rocking horse rides on the top of a department store. In 1972 they adopted the "Namco" name and two years later entered the arcade gaming world with their purchase of "Atari". Today they develop such key titles as "Tekken", "Soul Calibur" and "Ridge Racer".
