At the beginning of the year, Konami announced that they would be carrying out an auction of NFTS to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Castlevania . To many surprise, this auction ended up being a resounding success, and as a consequence, the Japanese company announced that they will continue to sell NFTS to “preserve content as commemorative art”.
As part of the most recent financial reporting of the company, Konami mentioned that they will continue with the sale of NFTS:
“We will also be selling Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTS) as part of our efforts to preserve content that has been loved by our customers as commemorative art.”
Konami did not specify exactly how they intend to integrate these NFTs with their games, however, it is a fact that they do not intend to get away from this practically. At least not currently.
Currently, Konami has not done much in the video game space, and we would not be surprised that the company will support the nostalgia of its IPS for the issue of NFTS . So surely in the future you can buy these digital franchise tokens such as Metal Gear Solid, Silent Hill, Castlevania, against , and more.
Editor’s note: Surely that if the Castlevania auction had not been so successful, Konami would have thought twice before getting into this market. Maybe in the future, when the theme of the NFTS has turned off a bit, Konami reconsider.
