We know this isn't exactly earth-shattering. After all, both Tecmo and Koei had already revealed
that they were creating an integration plan and joining forces. So now it's finally all hammered out, with joint operations to begin in April of next year.
No, the real
reason we wanted to bring this to your attention was the figure that got it all done: $207 million. If that number sounds sort of familiar, it should: Koei turned down a buyout offer from Square-Enix a few months ago to the tune of $206
million. Ouch! Square's gonna need a Phoenix Down to come back from a burn like that.
