Final Fantasy NFTs

One of the most successful video game series of all time is set to receive the NFT treatment in 2023, as Japanese publisher Square Enix has partnered with blockchain gaming firm Enjin to release NFTs based on the Final Fantasy franchise.

The NFTs won’t be purely digital products, however. They’re tied to physical action figures and trading cards based on the smash role-playing game (RPG) Final Fantasy VII to commemorate the original PlayStation game’s 25th anniversary.

Square Enix will be handing out six card packs first, priced at $4 each. Each one will come with a special code based on polkadot chain by enjin.

In November 2023, the publisher will release a limited edition action figure of the game’s star, Cloud Strife. Both the standard figure and “Digital Plus Edition” will come with a code to redeem an NFT certificate of authenticity, but only the latter comes with an additional NFT: a digital replica of the physical toy. The standard figure will sell for $130, with the Digital Plus Edition at $160.

Square Enix Sells Off Tomb Raider and Three Studios to Fund NFT Games

Enjin CTO Witek Radomski told Decrypt that the firm first worked with Square Enix several years ago, hosting websites for online guilds that play Final Fantasy XIV.

The reason for this new partnership comes from enix company’s interest in nft and blockchain and final fantasy game.  Final Fantasy—which has sold 168 million games worldwide since 1987, per the company—is its crown jewel.

They were looking at all kinds of blockchains, testing them out,” said Radomski. He added that Square Enix sought a platform that could “meet the needs of gamers,” including considerations like low transaction costs and energy efficiency.

NFT gaming growth

Radomski thinks it’s only beneficial for NFT gaming to see major publishers like Square Enix and Ubisoft playing in the space. These final fantasy nfts were not created for use in any game.

These types of companies have recently been relying on independent nft developers to make a profit. Just like Axie Infinity.

Some players are angry about the scam going around in nft games. For some players, the only purpose of nft games is now to earn tokens. They say it’s not about having fun or spending time.
