Sega Announces Plans to Implement Blockchain Technology Into its Game

— October 13, 2022 — Tech
Sega, a Japanese gaming company that is famously known for titles like Sonic the Hedgehog and Tetris, has announced that it will be unveiling its first blockchain gaming project. The project, which will be developed by another gaming business called Double Jump Tokyo, will be based on the ‘Sangokushi Taisen’ series, an iconic arcade game in Japan. The ‘Sangokushi Taisen’ series is a strategy game that includes a number of titles that let users employ digital playing cards on a digital playing field. The design of the game makes it easy to incorporate blockchain components, but Sega has not yet revealed how it will be integrating blockchain components into the game.

Sega’s stance on blockchain technology is unclear, as the business claimed previously that if its consumers perceived the use of these technologies in its games as a money grab, it would stop using them. However, recently in April, Sega teased that its ‘Super Game’ development approach could incorporate NFTs and metaverse components.
