Onigiri, the hugely popular free MMO role-playing game created by CyberStep, is joining the blockchain ecosystem. Thanks to a partnership between CyberStep and Catheon Gaming, this great game played by over 5 million people worldwide will enter a new exciting digital stage.
Onigiri aims to bring fans closer to the franchise using blockchain technology
Set in an ancient fantasy Japan, this game has over one hundred playable characters. Fans can play the game for free on PC, Playstation 4 & 5, phones, and Nintendo Switch. What’s more, Onigiri has a huge fanbase worldwide and has an anime series.
Talking about the new partnership, William Wu, CEO of Catheon Gaming, said, “We have made real progress in harnessing the potential of NFTs and gaming for some of the anime franchises, offering their fanbase new digital experiences. We are extremely excited to be bringing Web3 to one of the most popular entertainment industries globally, anime.”
In addition, Catheon Gaming will use its skills in blockchain technology, NFTs, gaming, and Web3 to help CyberStep create a new digital blockchain economy around the Onigiri franchise.
Anime NFT popularity is rising
Furthermore, there are several popular anime NFT projects. Onigiri will also want to gain some of those fans and bring their own fans onto the blockchain.
Finally, Anime franchises such as Onigiri have lots of collectibles on sale. It is a natural passage into NFTs for the franchise to join the NFT market.
