SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 27 September 2022 - Oasys, an environmentally-friendly and gaming-optimised blockchain built by gamers for gamers, today announces that it has been selected as the blockchain of choice for the development and launch of an upcoming digital collectible card game.
The game is licensed by SEGA and will be developed and operated by Japanese blockchain game developer double jump.tokyo. The game is expected to be released on Oasys’ Layer2 blockchain – HOME verse.
The theme of the soon-to-be released card game is based on the Romance of the Three Kingdoms mythology, using the intellectual property of the SANGOKUSHI TAISEN franchise, originally published by SEGA in 2005 as a strategy arcade game that gained tremendous popularity primarily in Asia.
