“It’s an exciting prospect for our company as we are always looking for ways to raise the bar for Malaysia’s games industry. Bandai Namco Studios is a global powerhouse in game development, and given our position as the biggest game production house in the country, this is a good platform, great opportunity and a strategic move to broaden our market in South East Asia. It’s a truly great level up for the Malaysian games industry,” said Wong Cheng Fei, CEO of Lemon Sky Games & Animation Sdn Bhd.
