Sega wants to transform atlus games into movies or live-action TV shows ...

Sega has revealed that it intends to develop live-action TV shows and film adaptations of Atlus games, mentioning the "high drama" and "cutting-edge style" of the Persona series.

Sega has introduced the possibility of several Atlus properties being released for TV or movie adaptations, including the Shin Megami Tensei series Catherine, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, and, of course, the Persona series. Sega does not state exactly which games will be being given adaptations, or how many production companies it will be working with, but claims to be currently working with dozens of producers and studios.

"Atlus'''' worlds are filled with high drama, cutting-edge technique, and compelling characters," says Toru Nakahara, the lead producer of both of the live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movies. "Stories like those from the Persona franchise really resonate with our viewers, and we see an opportunity to expand the lore like no one has previously. Together, Sega and Atlus, are collaborating to bring these stories and worlds to life via new mediums and for new audiences."

It''ll be interesting to see who picks up a potential Persona TV show or film, and how it will look like. Nakahara''s "expand the lore" comments suggests that Sega and Atlus might be exploring other parts of the Persona universe rather than adapting one of the games in the series, and the two might be exploring other mediums to better understand the game''s environment. It''s probably better to do that than to squeeze a 150-hour game into a feature-length

If you''re still unable to play through the Persona series and wish to give it a shot, you''ll be glad to know that Persona 5 Royal, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 3 Portable were all recently announced for pretty much every platform, the most recently being the Nintendo Switch. The first game that will be released on October 21 for PC, Xbox Series X, PS5, and the next, with the rest two expected to drop at some point in 2023.
