SEGA has a history of making some of the most iconic gaming franchises in history. The gaming company is responsible for the beloved Sonic The Hedgehog, Streets Of Rage, Yakuza and more.
The gaming company was once the toughest competitor to Nintendo only losing out to Nintendo after the PlayStation came to the public.
Reported first by 4Gamer a Japanese gaming reporting site SEGA has reached a deal with Double Jump Tokyo. This deal will see the development of a new game in the Sangokushi Taisen series.
The Sangokushi Taisen series is very popular in Japan , more so than in the states. The game does not have a release date but will use the blockchain technology.
The game will be developed by Jump Tokyo and SEGA will provide the licensing for the characters. The new Oasys blockchain will be utilized for the game as well as it was built with the specific purpose of supporting blockchain games.
Sangokushi Taisen is a real-time strategy game played in many Japanese arcades where players collect physical cards that can be used to make the characters really appear in game by placing the card on the gaming table.
It has not been made clearly exactly how the game will be implemented or if there will be a physical aspect to the game either.
There are many gaming companies that are looking into blockchain technology. Square-Enix has stated its intention to use the technology despite some players in the community be completely against it. Konami and Atari have already started selling NFTs. SEGA has also allegedly registered a “SEGA NFT” trademark. Gaming on the blockchain is currently the hottest topics and gaming companies are taking the technology serious with many in talks of utilizing the technology. Currently there is only one web3 gaming console on the horizon but more may be coming soon as many warm up to web3, metaverse, and blockchain gaming.
