Namco Bandai reveals TGS line up and offers child care for employees
Posted on September 06, 2011 by

 

As TGS 2011 draws closer, Namco Bandai is the latest publisher to reveal its lineup of games (and movies) that will be at their booth this year. It also seems that they are giving more support to Sony and Nintendo in terms of console exclusives for their home consoles and portables this coming year and leading into next year. One thing to mention, as I’ve stated with the past TGS news posts, is that a majority of these games might not have a chance of coming over to the US. But who knows, maybe there’s a game that might catch the eyes of fans in this list and will rally together to have it published. It happened with Tales of Grace F, which is coming over to the PS3 here in the West, so it could happen again. Now here are the titles that you can expect to see at Namco’s booth come next week:

 In other Namco Bandai news, they have announced that the company will be expanding its support system for their workers who have kids. Reports confirm that Namco will be giving out greater bonus for workers with multiple children and will offer a child care service in the main office.

Namco plans to give parents who have three or more children a bonus of 2 million yen, while first time parents and those on their second child will receive a 200,000 yen. Now while there’s no conditions attached for new parents to receive the 200,000 yen, there is a catch for those on their third child. In order to qualify for the 2 million yen bonus, parents must take one week off within the first two and half months of their child’s birth and write a “child rearing report”.

In addition to the bonus, the child care space that the company will provide will be known as the Kids Room and will be filled will be filled with Namco Bandai games and toys. This is in response from workers who wished to have a place for their kids to go to during school breaks.

It’s nice to see a company step up and set up a support system for families and their kids, even if the main reason is to encourage employees to have babies and help turn around the declining birthrate in Japan.
