Square Enix, the renowned developer behind popular JRPG franchises like Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, has announced a collaboration with major metaverse investment firm Animoca Brands to develop its own crypto-based NFT game.

Under the partnership, Square Enix will work with Animoca Brands to bolster the marketing efforts for “Symbiogenesis,” the upcoming game featuring a collection of 10,000 Ethereum NFTs.

Symbiogenesis, a narrative adventure game set in a devastated high fantasy world, will allow players to assume the roles of their Ethereum NFT avatars. These avatars can interact with other in-game NFTs minted on the Ethereum scaling network Polygon. Ownership of an NFT is required to access the Symbiogenesis game.

Animoca Brands Japan, the Japanese subsidiary of Animoca Brands, will lend its expertise to support the game’s marketing, expand its Japanese products overseas, and facilitate NFT sales. The game will also be featured on Animoca Brands Japan’s upcoming NFT launchpad, scheduled to launch in the summer of 2024 with support for both Ethereum and Polygon networks.

This collaboration marks another milestone in the relationship between Square Enix and Animoca Brands, following Square Enix’s previous investment in Animoca’s NFT game “The Sandbox” in 2020. Symbiogenesis represents Square Enix’s continued foray into the crypto space, building on its previous ventures such as the launch of Final Fantasy VII-based NFTs on Polygon in 2022.

We are very excited about this initiative and look forward to working with Animoca Brands Japan to bring the Web3 experience to a wider audience in an even more strategic way. Naoyuki Tamate, Producer of Symbiogenesis at Square Enix, expressed excitement about the partnership

We are proud to support the global development of Symbiogenesis as we continue our work to make Animoca Brands Japan the Web3 gateway between Japan and the rest of the world. Kensuke Amo, Chief Operating Officer of Animoca Brands Japan saying

As the gaming industry continues to embrace blockchain technology and NFTs, collaborations like the one between Square Enix and Animoca Brands signal a new era of innovation and opportunity in the world of gaming and digital collectibles.
