Konami of Europe today announced that it is no longer. In its stead will be a new arm of the Japanese publisher, Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH, headquartered in the German financial center of Frankfurt am Main. The name change will take effect at the start of Konami's fiscal year, which ends today.
In a statement, Konami said that the name change was part of an overall internal restructuring. When complete, said restructuring will unify the subdivision's PC console, arcade, and mobile phone operations into a single corporate hierarchy. The company did not specify what exactly the restructuring would entail or whether or not any jobs would be cut.
Besides its Frankfurt HQ, Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has satellite offices in London, Paris, Stockholm, Madrid, and the Dutch city of Apeldoorn.
