SEGA registers a trademark in Japan for its NFTs

NFT over here, NFT over there. For some time now, video game companies have joined the rage of this technology blockchain, with which they intend to sell the so-called non-fungible tokens. If Square Enix had already declared an interest in delving into this technology, Ubisoft launched directly with its own products. Now, SEGA has registered the SEGA NFT trademark in Japan. According to the information, it was done in December 2021.

The Sonic firm had previously indicated its interest in entering this market. Still, its CEO, Haruki Satomi, acknowledged the negativity in the gaming community. “With the NFTs we would like to try several things and we have started to study the subject“, he pointed. According to their own statements, they have not decided anything about it yet.

NFTs, only if they follow their philosophy

The President reviewed the current situation and explained that there have been many announcements about NFT around the world, “But there are users who react negatively”. Therefore, the objective is to “carefully evaluate” the methods to “mitigate these kinds of reactions”, while investigating whether the technology will be accepted by users. “We will move forward with NFTs if they help us fulfill our philosophy: constantly create” and captivate the player.

Satomi pointed out that if the community perceives NFTs only as a source of money, then he prefers not to continue with his plans. Will they collect feedback or will they try their luck? Currently they have not detailed how they will do it or if they will finally give the green light to projects in this specific direction.

When Stalker 2 detailed its roadmap regarding NFTs, gamers reacted with such negativity that the studio was forced to back down just hours after announcing it. In the case of Ubisoft Quartz, even the developers have questioned the modus operandi with the technology blockchain, although the French will continue to bet on it.
