Sky Mavis Pioneers a Fusion of Worlds
On November 2, Sky Mavis, the mastermind behind the renowned monster-battle NFT game Axie Infinity, unveiled a promising alliance with Korean game developer Act Games. This partnership aims to migrate a slew of captivating Japanese video game franchises to the progressive Ronin blockchain.
A New Dawn with Zoids Wild Arena
The endeavor commences with the iconic Zoids Wild Arena, a game reflecting the legacy of Japan’s largest toy manufacturer Tomy’s award-winning anime series. Originating as a plastic model figure in 1983 by Tomy, the game now finds a new home on the Ronin blockchain.
Expanding the Horizon
The partnership extends beyond a single game. Anticipated to follow are notable franchises like Hello Kitty Aggretsuko and Bubble Bobble, further enriching the Ronin blockchain’s gaming ecosystem. This collaboration embodies a blend of Act Games’ proficiency in amplifying iconic IPs and Sky Mavis’ Web3 acumen.
Mutual Expertise, Shared Vision
“Act Games excels at expanding iconic IPs, transcending demographics, and enhancing player engagement. This alliance will allow us to combine our Web3 learnings and expertise with nostalgic IP backed by a pre-existing core fanbase,” remarked Trung Nguyen, the CEO and Co-founder of Sky Mavis.
Initial Perks and Future Prospects
Early adopters are to be rewarded with Zoids NFTs and a token drop, provided they migrate to a Ronin wallet to partake in the game. The initiative not only paves the way for a novel gaming experience but also unfolds a potentially thriving chapter in the crypto-gaming narrative. Sky Mavis, with its track record of a whopping $4.2 billion in NFT sales volume and millions of daily active users, coupled with Act Games’ past successes, hints at a bright horizon for blockchain gaming aficionados.
