Double Jump Tokyo to Build Blockchain-Based Games Using Sega's IP

Japanese gaming giant Sega has signed a deal with Double Jump Tokyo to provide IP rights for a blockchain-based video game series named "Sangokushi Taisen."

The game will feature trading card mechanics and will utilize Japanese blockchain project Oasys, according to a blog post by Double Jump Tokyo.

"With a unique architecture optimized for blockchain games, Oasys aims to solve obstacles for gamers, offering fast transactions and zero gas fees and providing users with a more comfortable gameplay experience,” said Hironobu Ueno, CEO and founder of Double Jump Tokyo.

The use of blockchain and non-fungible tokens (NFTs), digital assets on a blockchain that represent ownership of physical or digital items, within gaming has become more prominent this year, with unique ownership of NFT assets being applied to traditional gaming mechanics like collectibles.
