One of the key developers of the NieR computer video game series predicted the emergence of large metaverses in 2023. He stated this in an interview with Famitsu.. He did not specify what kind of blockchain games he was talking about, but expressed hope for the “birth of a great metaverse.” “As for 2023, I must say that I am looking forward to the birth of a great metaverse, as well as very interesting blockchain games!” said Saito. Saito has been actively promoting blockchain-based products for a long time.. Back in the winter of 2021, he became interested in creating video games with elements of non-fungible tokens (NFT). In addition to Saito, Final Fantasy VII Remake Producer Yoshinori Kitase is also interested in NFT. The producer of the Dragon Quest series, Noriyoshi Fujimoto, also stood up for the technology. The Japanese video game market is increasingly thinking about how to implement blockchain technologies in their projects.. For example, in the summer of 2022, the Japanese developer and publisher of computer video games Square Enix Holdings announced plans to issue its own tokens.. The company also wants to solve the problems of scalability in certain economic zones and the issue of regulation of non-fungible tokens.. However, little progress has been made in this direction since then. The Japanese are ahead of the rest In November 2021, Square Enix said that the transition from centralized games towards decentralization will benefit the video game industry. At the same time, the company reported on the successful testing of the concept of a mobile NFT card game called Shi-San-Sei Million Arthur. Square Enix believes that video games have begun to move away from exclusively centralized models. The players, according to the Japanese company, are more interested in decentralized products. Tech giant Microsoft previously invested in Wemade, a popular video game developer that has embraced blockchain in recent years.. In total, the company raised $46 million from Microsoft, Shinhan Asset Management and Kiwoom Securities through the sale of convertible bonds. The company stated that it aims to “transform everyday gaming with blockchain technology and make the Wemix coin a key currency in the blockchain gaming space.” Disclaimer.
