The Japanese gaming giant, Sega has announced the launch of the company’s first blockchain game.
Without announcing the release date of the project, Sega said that it will be put together by a Japanese Development Company, Double Jump Tokyo.
The game, Sega added will be based on its Sangokushi Taisen franchise, which is a popular arcade game in Japan.
As reported by ‘Bitcoin.com’, “The Sangokushi Taisen franchise is comprised of a series of strategy games that allows its players to use virtual cards in the virtual field. The structure of the game lends itself to the implementation of blockchain elements, like the tokenization of some of the assets of the game and the trading aspect of the cards. However, none of the companies have announced how these blockchain elements will be included as part of the game mechanics.
“Double Jump Tokyo also announced that the blockchain part of the game will use Oasys, a Japanese gaming project, as its vehicle. Oasys is a blockchain initiative that aims to be scalable enough to support a big number of concurrent players using its services. The company hopes to make its entrance into the AAA gaming circle with this and other planned releases.
“Oasys has the support of traditional entertainment powerhouses and crypto companies, such as Bandai Namco, Sega, Jump Crypto, and even Square Enix, which became a validator of the chain and is currently exploring the launch of blockchain games using this tech.” the report said.
