2016 has been a year filled with video game adaptations, although most of them have been flops rather than hits. It looks like that isn’t stopping Sega from pushing forward, however, as it has been announced that several of their classic IPs are getting the film and TV treatment in the years to come.

The adaptations will be handled by Stories Entertainment in collaboration with Circle of Confusion. The Tokyo and LA-based Stories Entertainment is a joint venture between Sega Group and Hakuhodo DY Group and has been behind many TV ads and music videos, ranging from LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem” to Hatsune Miku’s “B Who I Want 2 B”. Circle of Confusion, meanwhile, has produced Fear the Walking Dead, American Ultra and Powers.

This partnership was teased earlier this year with the announcement of a Shinobi movie, but now we know the other planned adaptations are for Altered Beast, Streets of Rage, Virtua Fighter, House of the Dead, Crazy Taxi and Golden Axe.

We’ll be sure to let you know more as the movies and TV shows develop.

Whether it’s an exciting new entry in a series long established or a weird experiment meant only for the dedicated, Tom is eager to report on it. Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
