Gaming and entertainment company Bandai Namco is responsible for the likes of iconic games such as Pac-Man and Tekken. But after it revealed its new logo for 2022, it's been receiving some heat online. 

We have seen many companies simplifying their logos recently, and Bandai Namco is the latest to reveal a more streamlined design. The company has announced its new logo with a fresh magenta colour and speech bubble design, but fans on the internet are not keen on the new rebrand, so have started creating their own design.
