SEGA Takes "Sangokushi Taisen" into Web3
The renowned Japanese gaming company is partnering with Double Jump Tokyo to transform the beloved card-based strategy game "Sangokushi Taisen" into a Web3 trading card game.
SEGA Unveils Details of its First Web3 Game
SEGA is making waves in the gaming industry by venturing into the Web3 space. Building upon the success of its award-winning card-based strategy game "Sangokushi Taisen," SEGA is partnering with Double Jump Tokyo to create the PC-based trading card game, "Battle of Three Kingdoms." With a planned launch in late 2023, the game will offer players a visually captivating experience.
Double Jump Tokyo, a seasoned player in the blockchain gaming industry, is collaborating with SEGA to develop "Battle of Three Kingdoms." As the game's developer, Double Jump Tokyo has previously worked with renowned companies such as Square Enix, Bandai Namco, and Line. However, what sets this project apart is the utilization of the Oasys blockchain, a fully decentralized and zero-gas-fee blockchain designed specifically for gaming platforms. Oasys has partnered with industry giants like SEGA, Square Enix, and Bandai Namco.
Embracing the Decentralized Web
SEGA's foray into the Web3 realm is not a spontaneous decision. The company has displayed interest in the decentralized web by launching its first Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) through Oasys' NFT marketplace in May. Yu Suzuki, the mastermind behind iconic games such as Virtua Fighter and Shenmue, curated the collection. SEGA's commitment to exploring and integrating innovative technologies reaffirms its position as an industry leader.
"Sangokushi Taisen" holds a special place among gaming enthusiasts, known for its exceptional design and strategic gameplay. As SEGA revamps this long-standing franchise for the Web3 era, players can look forward to building their decks and engaging in auto battles within the immersive world of "Battle of Three Kingdoms." The game will initially support Japanese and English, with Chinese and Korean languages to be added in 2024.
