Anime adaptations and TV series of video games have long been the rule rather than the exception. Now Sega wants to join too IGN exclusively reported. The cinema films for Sonic the Hedgehog (and Sonic Prime) have probably tasted the famous blood.
And they have made no less than the Atlus brands for the upcoming plans. Sega would like to expand into film and television and adapt Atlus games.
Such an expansion is therefore an important and new part of Sega’s overall business strategy. It is not without reason that they want to start with Atlus, makers of brands such as Shin Megami Tensei, Catherine and last but not least Persona.
“The worlds of Atlus are filled with drama, innovative style and compelling characters,” said Toru Nakahara, Sega’s executive producer for the Sonic the Hedgehog live-action films and Sonic Prime TV series. “Stories like those from the Persona franchise are resonating with our fans, and we see an opportunity to expand the story in ways that no one has seen — or played before.”
Nakahara, who is also Sega’s director of entertainment production for film and television, added, “Sega and Atlus are working together to bring these stories and worlds to life through new media and for new audiences.”
We are currently reviewing live-action film and television projects with various studios and producers. So nothing is ready to be announced yet, but the plans are certainly concrete. So fans can dream of it. Which series do you think Sega will play first?
