So is it Tecmo Koei Games or Koei Tecmo Games ?

I thought the Japanese company was Koei Tecmo Games (株式会社コーエーテクモゲームス)

I've entered 株式会社コーエーテクモゲームス in the kanji field when I've created this (so the users who set the preferences on "original" can see it that way, example. While it's true the literal is Kabushikigaishya KOEI TECMO Games, official English version is TECMO KOEI GAMES CO., LTD. (in all caps).

chz: I think the koei label remained, it must just be the record company name which has changed (you could say it's an imprint)

Tecmo & Koei still exist as game brands under Tecmo Koei Games, so I wasn't sure if the Koei logo is still appearing on new albums because of that or because the Koei label is still around as an imprint.

The Koei logo is also on the Tecmo Koei Wave albums, when they took over publishing for a year.

(There was also a second Koei that existed from March 15, 2010, to April 1, 2011. The merger was... kinda complicated.)

generally, the label is present on obi that's why I think that the koei logo is the logo of a music label
that could give "koei (imprint) / tecmo koei <games/wave> (publisher)" (even if that scheme is wrong for a lot of albums on vgmdb)

I had the idea of checking out this album, because it's a KECH release for non-Koei games: http://vgmdb.net/album/42333.

Couldn't find any photos of the middle section of the obi where the Koei logo would be, but the logo is on the back, so I think you're right.

yeah, obi or back cover
I said obi because it's the best place to know the label

back cover can have other logos, like the company making the anime, game or whatever

I made new pages for most of them after the name change (not for KT Games though, might as well do it now...)

so generally you shouldn't rename existing entry, you make a new one to keep the old ones intact, we don't have a better system aka no organization name variations.
