Oasys collaborates with Yu Suzuki to launch the first NFT project
Oasys, a gaming-optimized blockchain developed for gamers by gamers, has collaborated with Yu Suzuki to launch the OASYX NFT project on Dec 7.
OASYX to create various NFTs
OASYX will be the first NFT project developed on the Oasys blockchain. Yu Suzuki, a game development executive, is widely renowned for creating videogame franchises such as Shenmue, Virtual Fighter, and Virtual Racing.
It is expected that OASYX, in conjunction with several artists, creators, and developers who originate from traditional gaming brands, will develop various gaming-related NFTs. The NFTs series will be supervised creatively by Suzuki, and the publication will be done by doublejump.tokyo, a blockchain game developer from Japan. Oasys Director Daiki Moriama stated:
“As the Oasys ecosystem grows from strength to strength, we are excited to debut the blockchain’s first-ever NFT project, centered on collaborations with a legendary game developer in Yu Suzuki. We look forward to bringing on more exceptional icons in our industry as we pave the way forward for the mainstream adoption of NFTs and blockchain gaming, with OASYX as an important catalyst.”
Suzuki is a famous video game pioneer and was responsible for SEGA’s development and research team for a long time. His inventions have massively steered the Japanese gaming industry forward, both culturally and technologically.
He was inducted into the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences and won the Game Developers Choice Award in 2011. He was also recognized for his impact and contribution to the gaming industry globally, being listed at number nine on IGN’s Top 100 Game Creators of All Time list.
Oasys came into existence in February 2022. The mission was to skyrocket the play–to–earn model and make it mainstream. Oasys has partnered with large gaming and web3 companies and studios, including SEGA, Yield Guild Games, Ubisoft, and Bandai Namco Research.
Oasys aids in solving the challenges that developers face when developing games as they aim to provide an ecosystem for developers and gamers to develop and distribute blockchain-based games.
It is an NFT project built on Oasys blockchain, and the publisher is doublejump.tokyo. The project is purely meant for gamers.
Every level of NFTs on OASYX will be under the supervision of the selected legendary game creator. This will grant comprehensive utility across the Oasys ecosystem, and more collaborations are set to be done as more gaming companies join the Oasys platform.
Suzuki, alongside GODTAIL, will oversee the entire art direction and theme of the first NFT series of OASYX. GODTAIL is a Japanese digital artist and the brains behind several anime-themed designs and artworks.
The initial bunch will distribute 10,000 characters based on a free-to-own format, serving as future Metaverse avatars. OASYX plans to introduce a more comprehensive NFTs range with additional use cases, including fashion items, new characters, and in-game gadgets. These new use cases will be explored in upcoming NFT collections.
