Cat collecting game Neko Atsume is getting a live-action film adaptation

The cat's out of the bag.

Mobile cat collecting hit Neko Atsume is getting a silver screen adaptation with a live-action film coming to Japan next year.

As reported by Siliconera, the film will follow the exploits of a young author suffering from writer's block following an early success. After moving to the country, he befriends a local stray cat who becomes his muse. So your typical boy-meets-cat story then.

The film will star Atsushi Itô (Battlefield Baseball, Boy's Choir) and will be directed by Masatoshi Kurakata (Crossroads), who was a writer on Shenmue 2.
