Square Enix, a Japanese video game company, has teamed up with blockchain gaming company Enjin to make NFTs based on its famous Final Fantasy role-playing game (RPG) series. Specifically, the NFTs are to celebrate the first Final Fantasy VII game for PlayStation’s 25th anniversary.
NFT cards Offering
Square Enix will release the NFTs cards in the spring of 2023. They will be sold in physical packs of six cards that cost $4 each. Each pack will have a code that, when redeemed on Enjin’s Efinity platform, will give the owner a single card anchored on the Polkadot blockchain.
The publisher will then release a limited-edition action figure of the game’s main character, Cloud Strife, in November 2023. Additionally, the physical figure will have a code on it for redeeming an NFT certificate of authenticity. There will also be a more expensive “Digital Plus Edition” of the physical figure that comes with a code used to get a digital copy of the toy from NFT.
The gaming company’s blockchain project joins a flurry of other blockchain-based projects made possible in part by the sale of its popular Tomb Raider games. One of its most recent and interesting Web3 moves was putting Dungeon Siege IP in The Sandbox.
