Currently the Banpresto is under BANDAI SPIRITS as well.

So there will still be Red Bandai logo around on normal kids product and other toy line and just the blue logo would be on higher end market product. :)

Hope that clarify the BANDAI Blue logo that it was not print error nor some piracy or bootleg
