Konami Holdings Corporation, a Japanese multimedia giant and game console business, has released a non-fungible token series to commemorate the 35th birthday of the firm’s franchise “Castlevania.” Konami joins a spate of entertainment titans such as Ubisoft and Square Enix in showing a keen incentive to create NFT innovation.
Konami Unveils Castlevania NFT Collection
Konami has jumped into the NFT scene quicker than you can say up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A. Konami announced the Castlevania 35th Anniversary NFT series web page on Thursday, and the collection will be sold off on the premier online platform Opensea.
Konami is a well-known computer game software company that owns famous products such as “Castlevania,” “Contra,” “Frogger,” “Metal Gear,” “Silent Hill,” “Parodius,” “Gradius,” “Yu-Gi-Oh!” and “Suikoden.”
Castlevania, a horror genre action game series, launched in 1986 on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). Konami’s Castlevania title has delivered over 20 million copies, as per figures.
Konami Participates in Square Enix’s Multiverse Talks, and Ubisoft Makes an NFT Contribution
The Castlevania NFT series by Konami includes 14 works of art, and the auction will commence on January 12. Konami’s move into the crypto realm comes after Square Enix’s president discussed NFTs and the multiverse in a new year’s message.
Another video game series competitor, Ubisoft, has previously released NFTs for use in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Setpoint on a desktop pc (PC). Ubisoft faced outrage over the NFTs, and the firm was chastised for including NFT aspects or the utility of NFT products.
NFTs from Konami are basically souvenirs with “game sceneries, backing music (BGM), and newly created images.” Moreover, Konami’s strategy has been more subdued, with less emphasis on generating NFT rarities and more emphasis on just selling NFT items.
On Thursday, several video game enthusiasts mocked Konami’s debut into the NFT industry, and conversations over the firm’s NFTs were all over social networks.
“Konami doing NFTs now?” said one player on Twitter. “Instead of creating something good with Castlevania?” “How come I’m not surprised?”
