Sega’s Intension on Blockchain Game

The real-time strategy game Sangokushi Taisen is mostly played in Japanese arcades. This Sangokushi Taisen series of strategy games would let users use digital playing cards in a virtual gaming world. Also, the game design makes it easy to integrate blockchain components, such as the tokenization of some in-game assets and the trading ability of the cards.

Meanwhile, none of the companies have stated how these blockchain components will be implemented into the gameplay. Also, Sega has not yet disclosed an approximate release date for the game. Moreover, in 1994, the SEGA VR-1 headset developed by Sega  is the metaverse industry’s first VR equipment. Countries that benefited from this were Sydney, London, and Japan. Additionally, this year has witnessed a rise in the use of blockchain and non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
