President & CEO, Bandai Namco Entertainment

Japanese publisher Bandai Namco is a diverse and capable publisher under Miyakawa, with a large output of multiplatform games. Action RPG “Tales of Arise” is one standout that has sold more than a million copies since its September 2021 release, while “Pac-Man 99” combined the classic arcade IP with an online battle royale spin in April, joining a popular industry trend. On the mobile side, “Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle” reached 350 million downloads since its 2015 release. With another installment of narrative horror franchise “The Dark Pictures” released in October, Miyakawa is readying one of Bandai Namco’s highest-­profile titles — “Elden Ring,” a fantasy-RPG collab from novelist George R.R. Martin of “Game of Thrones” fame and FromSoftware (“Bloodborne,” “Sekiro”), due in February 2022.
