Atlus has reportedly entered a multi-game deal with Netflix, including a new Shin Megami Tensei release.
Atlus is reportedly in the process of developing multiple undisclosed games for Netflix, as per information from an insider. Among them, there is speculation about a new installment in the Shin Megami Tensei series, anticipated to be accessible on mobile devices via the Netflix app.
Details about the nature of these games, the release dates, and specific information about the new Shin Megami Tensei game remain elusive. The rumored collaboration with Netflix, if accurate, suggests that Atlus is juggling commitments between this venture and other ongoing projects, such as the development of Persona 6.
This recent revelation surfaced on ResetEra, originating from a well-known Atlus leaker, Twitter user @MbKKssTBhz5. While not providing extensive commentary, the leaker indicated that Atlus has purportedly engaged in a partnership with Netflix, part of which involves bringing a new Shin Megami Tensei title to the streaming platform.
The credibility of this information is bolstered by Felipe Lima, editor-in-chief of Universo Nintendo, who, in a response, suggested awareness of the news regarding a new Shin Megami Tensei game debuting on Netflix. However, he acknowledged that this is the first he’s heard about additional Atlus games being developed for the platform, leaving room for confirmation.
The statement lacks clarity on whether these games will be exclusive to Netflix or if they will be available on other mobile platforms. Considering that Netflix games typically require a subscription, it is plausible that the streaming service aims to entice SMT enthusiasts to subscribe rather than making the game available for standalone purchase elsewhere.
As of the current writing, Atlus has not officially addressed these rumors or announced any collaborative agreement with Netflix.
On Netflix’s part, seeking partnerships with gaming companies aligns with its efforts to generate additional revenue. The company has explored various avenues, including potential price increases and incorporating ads into its shows. While there have been reports of considering ads during gaming sessions, it remains to be seen whether this will be implemented, especially if multiple Atlus games are poised to launch on the platform.
