Konami celebrates 35 years of Castlevania with an auction of NFT artwork

Recent articles

Konami has not been ashamed of a faux pas in recent years and of course they are bringing NFT with them as well. There is hardly a topic on which so many gaming community fans are so unanimous right now.

But Konami was probably already in full preparation when Ubisoft Quartz annoyed fans and even developers, when the developers of STALKER 2 had to backtrack, or when Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda shook his head to the max for his New Year’s letter.

Konami is in the mix and will be auctioned on the NFT Marketplace to mark the 35th anniversary of the legendary Castlevania series Offer OpenSea. Whoever decides to buy such a work of art is then the sole owner. It’s a bit like buying a real painting, only that it’s not real.

Castlevania is one of the best-known video game brands in the world. The auction, which will take place on January 12, should therefore also be an indication of where the journey is going for such campaigns.

Details about the 14 unique works of art can be found at the official website. Incidentally, this initiative is bundled under the name Konami Memorial NFT. It sounds like there are already plans for further franchises in the drawer. Metal Gear Solid, anyone?

Already in the announcement it seems that you can see that not everyone likes it. “Since this is the company’s first project in this area and NFTs and blockchain technology are still in their infancy, Konami will continue to explore new developments and respond to player feedback after this initial collection,” it said.

There will certainly be reactions.
