Square Enix unveils its first Ethereum NFT game

If the Web3 attracts many companies, Square Enix will not be left out. After working for a long time for other highly successful game franchises, the Japanese company is increasingly trying to make its mark in the sector. Proud of this decision, she unveiled her first game that will use NFTs yesterday.

Symbiogenesis, the Ethereum NFT based Web3 game from Square Enix

On Thursday, video game publisher Square Enix unveiled its first video game. Based on Ethereum NFT, the game is new to the Japanese company. Indeed, it is not a spin-off of an existing IP, but an entirely new franchise. The company has developed and published many well-known video game franchises. Including Tomb Raider and Final Fantasy.

However, Square Enix has now decided to go into business for itself and launch its own franchise, symbiogenesis. In the words of the team, this game represents a collectible digital art experience. To do this, the latter will be anchored on NFT artwork that will provide many possibilities to the users. These non-fungible tokens not only function in-game, but can also serve as social media profile pictures.

However, Symbiogenesis is not just one of many other games. According to an official announcement, this Ethereum NFT game is more of a web platform with interactive and story-based elements. This allows players to have full control over their NFTs as they complete missions.

This isn’t the first time Square Enix has shown interest in NFTs and Web3. The craze started in 2019 with an unexpected statement from President Yosuke Matsuda. Later in 2020, the company invested $2 million in the metaverse game The Sandbox. However, the company didn’t really enter the Web3 space until 2021 with the launch of digital stickers.

Since 2019, Square Enix’s interest in the Web3 space and NFT-powered games has grown steadily. While it only really got into it last year, the Japanese company sees things big, and its first Symbiogenesis game proves it. However, it won’t be available until 2023.
