Sega Developing More Movies/Series
 
Quote:

Variety reports that SEGA is moving forward with live-action and animated adaptations based on their games. The company has hired Evan Cholfin as head of development and production at Tokyo-based Stories International, a joint venture of SEGA and advertising agency Hakuhodo DY Group that was launched to produce films, TV shows and entertainment for digital platforms.

Stories International is moving forward with Altered Beast, Streets of Rage, Shinobi, Rise of Nightmares, and Crazy Taxi first as English-language live-action and animated projects. Virtua Fighter and Golden Axe are also properties that could be adapted.

It is unclear which project will become a feature film, a TV show or a digital series at this time.

The trade adds that SEGA has also completed a minority investment in All Nippon Entertainment Works. The deal with ANEW is expected to help Stories bolster its entertainment efforts in Hollywood by gaining access to 20 Japanese rights holders who own films, TV shows, books, toys and manga titles.

Golden Axe would be pretty awesome as a movie or TV series.

The Stryker 12-12-2014 01:51 PM

If they're all about the same level of quality as Sonic Boom....No thanks.

Peanut 12-12-2014 01:58 PM

They already have the ultimate Sega show running right now.

Wow, I'm blown away.

A Crazy Taxi movie/series would be awesome.

Netkeeper 12-12-2014 07:20 PM

Altered Beast... that would be the **** right there.

Yup. I wish I had short term memory loss to forget I ever saw an episode of it.

I would even be interested see an Nights movie if one was ever done.

Vector Man might even make for a cool movie.

Wildcat 12-12-2014 09:33 PM

Cool. Love Crazy Taxi. There needs to be a new game too. Especially with all motion sensing controls now.

Sonic Boom is ok. It'll probably get better. I'm really looking forward to the Live Action Sonic movie though.

Vectorman was cool. Wish more games were made. There was a PS2 game that was cancelled. I think it was ps2.

DarkFell 12-12-2014 09:41 PM

I heard that a V.M.3 game was planned for PS2. Why it got canned, no one might not ever know.

Anyone know why Primal Rage 2 got scrapped? Old game but I'm still curious as to why it got canned.

Indeed. It was reportedly nothing like the original games, though.

Either way...those games weren't good, guys.

Lol...mad OT here, but I'll indulge you. Atari Games wasn't in great shape at the time and Primal Rage wasn't exactly the biggest fighting game success story. They cancelled the project pretty early in development out of fear it wouldn't sell enough to warrant the cost of development. Pretty sure there are roms out there of what did exist, though. I think someone even had a test cabinet kicking around as recently as this year.

Wildcat 12-12-2014 10:01 PM

^What I have them, the Vectoman games were good.

I know the ps2 game was different. He looked more like a mech in some screenshots.

Peanut 12-12-2014 10:03 PM

I own them, too. It's cool you like them, I just think they're pretty bland and have aged incredibly poorly.

Wildcat 12-12-2014 10:35 PM

Well I don't know how they aged poorly. Gameplay is as solid as any other popular game back then.

I guess I could see if you don't like all the shooting.

TigerClaw 12-13-2014 07:36 AM

Altered Beast, Streets of Rage, & Shinobi would make for some cool movies I think.

That's one game in a long running series.
