Konami Begins Metave

Konami, one of Japan's most prominent game development 

and publishing companies, has stated that it will incorporate Web3 and metaverse technology into its games.

The company posted 13 job positions across three divisions that will be in charge of developing new initiatives to drive Konami's next business strategy.

Konami, one of Japan's largest AAA game developers and publishers, has expressed interest in joining the metaverse and Web3 entertainment bandwagon. The company has posted a number of job postings for the development of experiences that include this sort of technology in its upcoming games.

The company is hiring for 13 different positions in infrastructure development, production and operations, and support. According to Konami's news release, these additional openings will serve to create new experiences such as Web3 and Metaverse.

While no specific IPs (intellectual properties) would be used with these new technologies, the company did describe its broad goals for the future, which include non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

This isn't the first time Konami has used blockchain-based features in its operations. In fact, the company has already issued a non-fungible tokens (NFT) collection to mark the 35th anniversary of Castlevania, one of its most popular series.

The NFT collection, which includes videos and images from some of the franchise's early games, was a hit, raising more than $160,000 in January. As a result, the company indicated that it will continue to use this technology, stating that it would be used for "content preservation."

Other Japanese players have an advantage when it comes to metaverse and Web3 technologies. Bandai Namco is already working on creating its own multi-IP metaverse and announced in February that it will invest $130 million in this endeavor. Square Enix has also incorporated blockchain and play-to-earn into its business plan, announcing the release of a Final Fantasy-themed NFT collection for next year.

Sega also recently stated that it will create its own blockchain-based, IP-licensed game, including decentralized components supported by Japanese blockchain company Oasys.
