Japanese Game Publisher Sega wants to incorporate NFTs as well as cloud support into its new Super Game project. The idea was suggested during an interview posted on the Japanese recruitment website.
Sega producer Masayoshi Kikichi said that such a move was inevitable. In his own words: “It is a natural extension for the future of gaming that it will expand to involve new areas such as cloud gaming and NFTs.”
Sega ‘Super Game’ project: What you need to know
During Sega’s 2021 financial year presentation, the firm outlined its plans to create a ‘Super Game’ project. This 5-year project will house a variety of AAA cross-platform titles. Sega’s Executive Vice President Shuji Umatsui stated that several titles are currently in development for the ‘Super Game’ project. In fact, the firm is looking to inject a whopping $800 million investment into the project.
Backlashes from traditional gamers
Not surprisingly, the news drew backlashes from anti-crypto gamers. Twitter user @DynamoSuperX responded in a tweet: “THE BETRAYAL. WHY SEGA? Sega fans have also expressed concern about NFT integration in Super Game. Sega games can be played cross-consoles. Sega long-time fans don’t like the news because they see gaming NFTs in corporate greed. Sega had to hold P2E NFT games in February so that fans didn’t view them as a cash grab.
Nevertheless, Sega registered a trademark for the term “Sega NFT” in January this year. It is only a matter time before Sega’s projects such as the Super Game include NFTs, given the rapid pace of development. Sega isn’t the only one who has ventured into Web 3. Rumor has it that Activision Blizzard may incorporate NFTs into Call of Duty games too.
