Konami is not working with NFTs yet. Following its Castlevania anniversary selection, it announced its recruitment for WEB3 and metaverse developers, intending to build a virtual blockchain world that would compete with the likes of Meta. Though these rarely achieve popular results, they haven’t proved successful.

We’ve been researching and developing, to integrate the latest technology into games and content, and plan to launch a service where players can trade their in-game NFTs (digital items) through a unique distribution platform using blockchain, said the listing. “To increase our structure and expand our business, we are looking for the following positions as members that will work together to expand our business and evolve with a new future for digital entertainment.”

A $1.2 billion metaverse — Decentraland, – reportedly only had 38 active users over 24 hours (thanks, Futurism), but it didn’t say it actually had 8.8 daily users. That’s still $150,000 per player. The Avengers that was set to appear to be slated reaches a 24-hour peak of 289, seven times the number of Decentraland’s reported. Metaverses aren’t popular.
NFTs and blockchain-tech, too. Ubisoft made the leap in cryptocurrencies and digital goods in its Quartz marketplace, but they didn’t sell much of them. Between the 15th and 20th of December and twenty twenty five sales were only made. Ubisoft eventually scrapped its NFT plans because of the lack of interest. Konami was insisting on the move.
There is little word officially on any new games, though rumours, leaks and comments from people like Silent Hill film director Christophe Gans make up most of what we know. There is an argument that there are many silent hills in the development, but fans are still calling for Metal Gear Solid and it remains to be seen whether any of these plans actually can start.
