Oasys and Edia team up to bring retro gaming to Web3

Oasys, a blockchain designed specifically for gaming, has forged a new partnership with Edia Corporation, the owner of 139 retro game IPs, as per the latest info shared with Finbold on July 10. 

The partnership aims to introduce more gamers to Web3 by distributing classic titles globally through blockchain technology.

Toward a nostalgic yet innovative gameplay experience

The collaboration will leverage Edia’s extensive retro game catalog to create new blockchain-based games using Oasys’ infrastructure. 

All retro games in Edia’s portfolio will be reimagined for the Web3 environment, promising a nostalgic yet innovative gaming experience.

Edia will manage public relations and marketing to promote blockchain-based retro gaming and highlight Web3’s potential for bringing modern gaming innovations to classic titles.

This partnership will thus reintroduce iconic ‘80s and ‘90s games to modern audiences interested in blockchain. 

Among the notable titles is Gaiares, a horizontal-scrolling shooter originally released in 1990 on the Genesis platform. 

Many other cult classics from Japan, Europe, and North America will likewise be revamped for the blockchain gaming scene.

The future of blockchain gaming

The IVS Crypto 2024 event in Kyoto recently demonstrated the potential of blockchain gaming.

The conference focused on blockchain technology and Web3 in gaming and entertainment, as well as artificial intelligence (AI), with over 12,000 participants attending 300 side events.

During the event, Oasys’ leaders, Ryo Manzoku and Ryo Matsubara, discussed the rising demand for Web3 in Japan, emphasizing Oasys’ role in game development and mass adoption of blockchain gaming.

Masaaki Taira, a Japanese government representative, underscored strong government support for blockchain initiatives, pointing out the potential of blockchain and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) to promote Japan’s cultural assets.

The government is also simplifying taxation to foster Web3 growth, encouraging collaboration between startups and bolstering Japan’s position as a global leader in blockchain gaming.
