- Sega, one of the largest Japanese gaming companies, has announced that it will launch its first blockchain game in collaboration with Double Jump Tokyo, another Japanese development company. The game, which is based on Sega’s Sangokushi Taisen franchise, will be built using Oasys, a Japanese project focused on scaling, to support its blockchain elements.
Sega to Launch First Blockchain Gaming Project
Sega, one of the most influential Japan-based gaming companies, has announced that it will build its first blockchain-based game. The project, which will be built by another game company, Double Jump Tokyo, will be based on the Sangokushi Taisen franchise, a popular arcade game in Japan.
The Sangokushi Taisen franchise is made up of a series of strategy games that allow its players to use virtual cards in the virtual field. The structure of the game lends itself to the implementation of blockchain elements, such as the tokenization of some of the game’s assets and the trading aspect of the cards. However, none of the companies have announced how these blockchain elements will be included as part of the game mechanics.
A tentative release date for the game has yet to be announced, but Sega has not announced the development of any similar projects.
Oasys Blockchain and Blockchain Gaming
Double Jump Tokyo also announced that the blockchain part of the game will use Oasys, a Japanese gaming project, as its vehicle. Oasys is a blockchain initiative that aims to be scalable enough to support a large number of simultaneous players using its services. The company hopes to make its entry into the AAA gaming circle with this and other planned releases.
Sega’s stance on non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and blockchain gaming have been ambiguous. In January, the company stated that it could abandon the implementation of these technologies in its games if they are considered money-taking by its customers. More recently, however, in April, Sega hinted at the possibility of including NFT and metaverse elements as part of its “Super Game” development strategy.
