Persona & Like a Dragon Movie Adaptations Could Happen, Says Sega COO

Outlet CNBC recently spoke with the Sega Chief Operating Officer, Shuji Utsumi, regarding the company’s continued growth and success, particularly with Sonic the Hedgehog.

Following the success of Sonic’s movies, Sega is looking to create that same success with other IPs in its portfolio. In fact, Like a Dragon and Persona are explicitly mentioned as potential candidates, but not much elaboration was provided.

Still, the goal is to spread awareness of Sega’s IPs to more consumers. Utsumi said the following:

“As I say, we are trying to be in a lot of different categories, different areas like Roblox, movies. All these IPs can be somewhere else other than games soon.”

While this statement and notion are still quite vague, the translation of video game IPs to film has become increasingly prominent, so this direction isn’t all too surprising, even if the outcome isn’t yet set in stone. Regardless, we’ll keep you all updated with these prospective projects.

Persona 5 Tactica will launch for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam on November 17, 2023.

The gameplay in Persona 5 Tactica allows players to take a strategic position during battles. Characters can move around the field and take cover for added defense or take a chance to find an enemy’s weakness to deal extra damage. There are other ways to receive an additional hit that require you to defend and play strategically.

Each character has a variety of skills. Whenever you hit an enemy or get hit by an enemy during battle, the star-shaped Voltage gauge near the bottom right-hand side of the screen will fill up. Once the gauge is fully charged, you can execute a character-specific unique skill. Each character has their own skill tree, which can be reset at any time if you wish to create a different type of party.
