The new installment of Ni No Kuni, an RPG franchise brought by independent gaming studio Level 5 and animated by Studio Ghibli, has launched with blockchain elements present. The game, which has been designed for mobile and PC platforms, introduces a token system that lets players use their earnings outside of the game, and will feature support for NFTs in the future.
More and more game developers are now including blockchain and play-to-earn elements in their games as a means of innovation and empowering players. “Ni No Kuni: Cross Worlds,” the new sequel to the acclaimed RPG franchise, developed by independent Japanese studio Level 5, has announced it will make use of NFTs and tokens to establish its own game economy.
Our goal is to emphasize the game’s intrinsic fun factor and create a token economy structure that benefits both players and token holders.
Furthermore, the company added that these tokens will be used to “avoid speculative pre-sales and NFT pre-releases.”
Ni No Kuni: Cross Worlds designed its token economy with a dual token system. The players will be able to earn two kinds of resources in the game: Territe and Asterite. Players will be able to exchange these resources for their corresponding Territe and Asterite tokens, with the company providing the exchange functionality.
The game has also built a roadmap with these blockchain elements at its center, with staking for the tokens planned to be launched in Q3, and NFT content to be included in the game in Q4. However, the form of this NFT integration has not been defined.
