Sega's head of entertainment productions film and TV Toru Nakahara speaking with IGN has said they are looking at creating live-action TV shows and movies based on Atlus IPs with a variety of studios and producers.
ATlus IPs include Shin Megami Tensei, Persona, and Catherine.
"Atlus' worlds are filled with high drama, cutting-edge style and compelling characters," said Nakahara. "Stories like those from the Persona franchise really resonate with our fans and we see an opportunity to expand the lore like no one has seen — or played — before."
Nakahara added, "Together, Sega and Atlus, are working to bring these stories and worlds to life through new mediums and for new audiences."
Nakahara is also the lead producer on the live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movies and Sonic Prime TV series.
