Share This Post

The Japanese entertainment conglomerate and video game company, Konami Holdings Corporation, has revealed a non-fungible token collection in order to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the firm’s franchise “Castlevania.” Konami follows the slew of gaming giants like Ubisoft and Square Enix that have shown a strong interest in developing NFT technology.

Konami Unveils NFT Collection Dedicated to the Castlevania Video Game Franchise

The gaming giant Konami has leaped into the NFT world faster than pressing up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A. On Thursday, Konami launched the Castlevania 35th Anniversary NFT collection web portal and the collection will be auctioned on the leading marketplace Opensea.

Konami is a well known video game software manufacturer and the owner of popular franchises including “Castlevania,” “Contra,” “Frogger,” “Metal Gear,” “Silent Hill,” “Parodius,” “Gradius,” “Yu-Gi-Oh!,” and “Suikoden.”

The gothic horror action-adventure video game series Castlevania debuted 1986 on the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). According to statistics, Konami’s Castlevania franchise has sold more than 20 million copies.

Konami Joins Square Enix’s Metaverse Discussions and Ubisoft’s NFT Entry

Konami’s Castlevania NFT collection consists of 14 pieces of art and the sale will begin on January 12. Konami’s entry into the crypto space follows the president of Square Enix discussing NFTs and the metaverse in a new year’s letter.

Ubisoft, another video game franchise competitor, has already launched NFTs that can be used in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint on a personal computer (PC). Ubisoft received backlash over the NFTs and the company was criticized over the inclusion of NFT elements or NFT items’ utility.

Konami’s NFTs are simply collectibles that feature “game scenes, background music (BGM), and newly drawn visuals.” Furthermore, Konami’s approach has been more silent with less talk about creating NFT collectibles and simply launching the NFT products.

Some video game fans have been mocking Konami’s entry into the NFT space and discussions about the company’s NFTs are littered all over social media on Thursday.

“Konami doing NFTs now?” one gamer wrote on Twitter. “Instead of doing anything actually worthwhile with Castlevania? Why am I not surprised?”
