The founder of video game company Bandai Namco, which released cult game Pac-Man, has died at the age of 91, the firm has announced.
Masaya Nakamura established Nakamura Manufacturing, which went on to become the Nakamura Amusement Machine Manufacturing Company (Namco) in 1956.
He was known as the "father" of Pac-Man because it was a Namco release in 1980.
The game was developed by Toru Iwatani and in 2016 was named the highest-grossing arcade game of all time by the website US Gamer.

What would life had been without Pacman?
What blows me away is how good some people were at it.
