So is it Namco Bandai, Bandai Namco, or both?

The wiki page lists the company as Namco Bandai but during loading screens or wherever it says"Bandai Namco". Is this just a styling thing? Am I supposed to read the bottom first when looking at their logo?

I know its a dumb, trivial thing but I just always wondered.

I believe it's Bandai Namco in Japan and Namco Bandai everywhere else. Yeah, it's stupid.

Yep it's Bandai Namco in Japan and Namco Bandai everywhere else. Turns out that when they merged Bandai had a stronger brand in Japan so they got top billing there, while Namco had a stronger brand in the west so they got top billing everywhere else.
