Tokyo-based video gaming company, Square Enix Holdings Ltd is set to launch the digital collectibles for the Final Fantasy VII 25th Anniversary cards and figures. The collection will be launched on the Efinity blockchain, powered by the Enjin platform.
Enjin is a dedicated ecosystem for Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) with the goal of bringing these unique asset classes to everyone. The ecosystem’s NFT and blockchain solutions are designed with the aid of the Efinity protocol, and the proposed Final Fantasy VII collection is on track to be launched by 2023.
“This partnership marks a coming-of-age phase for digital assets and entertainment; Square Enix, an esteemed developer with iconic intellectual property, is paving the way for the industry. By using Efinity, fans can experience interactive NFTs without even realizing they’re on the blockchain. Enjin can establish the next phase of growth in blockchain entertainment, merging curiosity and creativity,” said Witek Radomski, Enjin CTO
Enjin is a platform that cherishes its commitment to Carbon-neutrality, a move that informed the building of the foundation of Efinity on the energy efficiency of the Polkadot network.
Mainstream Gaming Platforms and NFTs
Mainstream gaming platforms are approaching the world of crypto, NFTs, and the blockchain ecosystem as a whole in a non-exclusive way. Square Enix in particular has been exploring various avenues by which it can integrate the NFTs into its widely accepted gaming titles.
As reported earlier by TheCoinRise, Square Enix has shared its visions to boost its NFT gaming adoption strategy, and in line with that commitment, the firm took the lead role in bankrolling the NFT gaming platform, Zebedee which pulled $35 million in a funding round earlier this month.
While Square Enix is showing positive momentum with respect to NFT integration, Minecraft has completely boycotted the innovation saying it will not foster the spirit of inclusivity on its platform.
“To ensure that Minecraft players have a safe and inclusive experience, blockchain technologies are not permitted to be integrated inside our Minecraft client and server applications nor may they be utilized to create NFTs associated with any in-game content, including worlds, skins, persona items, or other mods,” Minecraft said in an announcement shared last week.
