Exciting development in NFT games as Japanese big shot Square Enix announces its first Web3 project.
Square Enix is a renowned name when it comes to gaming, its flagship project is Final Fantasy, and Tomb Raider which enjoys massive popularity throughout the globe.
Now, Square Enix enters into the transitional phase from Web2 to Web3 with its new NFT gaming project, Symbiogenesis. It is an Ethereum NFT web-based game.
The announcement came yesterday and the game is termed an interactive NFT art-collecting game. Square Enix calls Symbiogenesis a franchise, which means that the project is here to stay.
Additionally, the developer has clear plans to back this franchise with a massive ecosystem that will drive the game.
The release date isn’t officially out there as of yet. However, Square Enix did reveal the launch window where we can expect the game to hit the markets during the Spring of 2023.
As for the game or gameplay, there isn’t much information out there at the moment. The only information is that the game is interactive, narrative-driven, and web-based. Moreover, players will have their own NFT avatars engage in missions revolving around questions of monopolization and distribution of resources, and several other exciting game modes backed by blockchain.
Previously, Square Enix announced Final Fantasy NFTs on the game’s silver jubilee. These NFTs will also launch next year alongside the much-anticipated game.
Besides, the developer also plans to bring the Dungeon Seige franchise into another blockchain platform; The Sandbox. Square Enix believes that NFT’s will revolutionize the gaming industry.
Square Enix is not alone when it comes to taking a leap from traditional gaming towards Web3 gaming. Some other big names include Ubisoft, Team17, and Sega which are making heads in blockchain gaming and NFT projects.
