Sequel to Iconic RPG Ni No Kuni Will Feature NFT Integration and Win-Win Gameplay Mechanics

The new installment of Ni No Kuni, an RPG franchise brought by indie game studio Level 5 and animated by Studio Ghibli, has launched with blockchain elements present. The game, which was designed for mobile and PC platforms, introduces a token system that allows players to use their winnings outside of the game, and will support NFTs in the future.

‘Ni No Kuni: Cross Worlds’ Goes Blockchain

More and more game developers are now including blockchain and play-to-win elements in their games as a means of innovation and player empowerment. “Ni No Kuni: Cross Worlds”, the new sequel to the popular RPG franchise, developed by indie Japanese studio Level 5, has announced that it will use NFTs and tokens to establish its own in-game economy.

The game, which features Studio Ghibli animations and five different characters, each with different attributes and stories, will use these elements to enrich the player experience. According to the game’s official page:

Our goal is to emphasize the intrinsic fun factor of the game and create a token economy structure that benefits both players and token holders.

Additionally, the company added that these tokens will be used to “avoid speculative pre-sales and NFT pre-releases.”

Token Savings and Receipt

Ni No Kuni: Cross Worlds designed its token economy with a dual token system. Players will be able to earn two types of resources in the game: Territe and Asterite. Players will be able to exchange these resources for their corresponding Territe and Asterite tokens, with the company providing the exchange functionality.

The game has also built a roadmap with these blockchain elements at its core, with staking for tokens set to launch in Q3 and NFT content to be included in the game in Q4. However, the form of this NFT integration has not been defined.

This inclusion of blockchain and NFT elements was poorly received by some fans of the franchise, unhappy with the new mechanics used by Level 5 to enrich the game. Other projects that have attempted or signaled interest in including such elements in the games, like Ubisoft and GSC Games, have also faced backlash.

However, companies like Square Enix have introduced these innovations as part of their business plan, with the company’s president expressing support for play-to-earn and NFT elements on various occasions.
