The likes of Golden Axe, Shinobi, Altered Beast, Virtua Fighter, and Crazy Taxi could be heading to the big and small screens.
A joint venture between Sega and Hakuhodo DY Group, a Japanese advertising agency, Stories International owns the rights to forty Sega properties, including Golden Axe and the other games above. The company has appointed Evan Choflin as head of development and production for the company's film, television, and digital division.
Choflin's previous experience was with Break Media, where he oversaw and produced film, TV and digital content.
Stories International is "looking to partner with the major studios, A-list producers and filmmakers to adapt these properties into English-language feature films, television and digital series for worldwide release," a press release reads.
