The world of video games is conquering the web3. Many historical partnerships announced between the ecosystem and the big names in the sector. This time it’s the Japanese giant Square Enix, which joins the Oasis blockchain. It is not the first time that Square Enix has shown its interest in this area, as it had already announced that it was working on a issuance of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) for 2023 on the Final Fantasy theme thanks to the Enjin blockchain.
If the name of Square Enix Co., Ltd. it means nothing to you, you know it almost indirectly. It is one of the leading companies developing video games in Japan. Founded on September 22, 1975, it has since released many games (besides manga). And it is in particular at the origin of the series Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest And Kingdom Hearts.
As for the Oasys blockchain project, it looks like a blockchain ecological (powered by PoS) focused on games and “built for the gaming community, offering fast transactions at a lower cost.”
This collaboration between the two sides is not surprising. Square Enix wanted from last year focus on blockchain game development “Based on token economics as a form of decentralized content. ” The Oasys blockchain was therefore a consistent choice.
“Whether it’s to have fun, win or contribute, a wide variety of motivations will drive people to engage in games and connect with each other. Blockchain-based tokens will allow this. “

Square Enix will be part of the validators of the Oasys network
According to the press release, this partnership makes Square Enix one of the 21 validators of the Oasys network. On the latter point, it should be noted that the company had said “wanting to go all the way” which is why he wants to be part of the validators of this blockchain. By becoming a network validator, it joins the long list of companies (mostly gaming) that had already planned it. This is Bandai Namco, Sega, Ubisoft, Netmarble, Wemade, Com2us And Performance of guild games.
In addition to this, the agreement provides that Square Enix will use the Oasys blockchain to develop new inclusive games. Above all, they want test contributions generated by players. Thus, the content can be generated by users. According to Yosuke Saito, it is a way to reward players who contribute to the creation of virtual worlds “with their own elements.”
“Our shared enthusiasm for web3 games makes this partnership exciting for us and we look forward to information that can advance the creation of entirely new gaming experiences for players around the world.” “
