Square Enix to debut Final Fantasy VII NFTs with the help of Enjin

Tokyo-based Square Enix is teaming up with Enjin to launch an NFT project related to its Final Fantasy franchise. By 2023, the company is going to roll out a digital collection of Final Fantasy VII 25th Anniversary cards and figures on Enjin's Efinity network. 

To get one of these exclusive NFTs, you'll need to buy its corresponding physical item in the collection. Starting today, everyone can pre-order the commemorative action figure at the Square Enix Store. Each of them will come with a code, which you can use it to redeem an NFT version of the figure. As for the trading cards, pre-orders will only be available later this year. 

The announcement came as no surprise though, as Yosuke Matsuda, the CEO of Square Enix has always shown great interest in NFTs and blockchain technology. In fact, the company even sold off its Western game studios to finance its ventures into Web3. 

Is Square Enix launching a Final Fantasy blockchain game? 

As of now, the Japanese game publisher has not revealed any plans to do so. Last month, Matsuda-san said in a shareholders' meeting that the company is not ready to integrate blockchain technologies into titles like Drago Quest or Final Fantasy. 

Instead, Square Enix is looking to create “story-focused" NFTs. Given that, we wonder if these Final Fantasy VII NFTs are in fact story-based NFTs that the firm has been talking about. If that's the case, how do these NFTs work? What are their utilities? Will they be playable in a Final Fantasy blockchain game (if any) in the future? 

Unfortunately, there are no clear answers to these questions. With Web2 gamers' hostile attitude towards NFTs and crypto, Square Enix is keeping a rather low profile on all things Web3.
